I found a set of Mustang Cobra R knock offs and was wondering if the backspacing would be ok. They're 17x9 with a 24mm offset. Would I need a fender roll/pull on the rear?? Will they even fit the front?? I'm lookin for the S14 guys input on this. Thanks in advance.

They will fit for sure, S14's have miles of clearance compared to S13's.

The backspacing on an S14 is sick, so much room inboard. A +24 on a 9in rim is civil, I would do it in a hearbeat.

What will be the real deciding factor is how much tire you want to run, that will dictate the need for a roll/pull.

No pull will be needed for sure, but a slight roll may be required to get that inner lip flat.

A good friend of mine ran 17x9 +12 rims and they fit in both front/back with no issues. 245 or 255 tire, forgot which.

Do it! Twisted Evil

I'm super tempted, but I got drunk last night and ordered LED taillights and other misc. LED bulbs, so I'm low on "car improvement" funds. Fuckin beer, it makes me do the weirdest things... lol!

LOL!

I remember having a brief stint of drunk ebaying. Never have I wanted to LOSE the bid more in my life! I bid on a 15k Lancer Evo 5...seriously...I dont have 15k, let alone want an Evo 5 thats not legal to drive here in the U.S.

Cobra R wheels are easy to come by though, so they will be there whenever you are feeling saucy.

only issue is you being on spring/shock idk if they will clear, i'm not enough of a fitment whore to know.


but here is some thoughts.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

quoted from there also "I actually just put Bullit wheels on my s14 yesterday. 17x10.5 +27 in the rear with 275 40 17's and 17x9 +24 in the front with 235 45 17's. They look amazing. I can't tell how flush the fronts actually are, because the car has no motor in it so the front end is like a foot in the air haha. The rear is a bit lower than the red s14 in the post above, and it looks amazing. Its gonna need a roll before i actually drive it, but big deal, nothing hard there.

The fronts definitely clear my z brakes with ease. Everything clears perfectly all around "

look up GSRAcer he has a S14 with a VH45 (infiniti v8) and he fit 315's on stock fenders... might be worth looking into.

Just keep in mind, the aftermarket cobra wheels are heavy as hell so keep an eye out for that.

Yeah, some are better than others obviously. I like the way they look on S14s though!
