    I am selling all four of the 96-97 Cobra wheels off my 93 Coupe. These are the ones with the darker inserts and are 17" x 8" with +30mm offset and a 5.72" backspacing. These will work with any 5 lug swap on the Fox cars due to the larger area behind the center cap allowing room for the Mark VII rotors. I had them on my car when I originally swapped to five lug with the Mark VII rotors and the Ranger/Aerostar axles in the rear. The car then went to SN95 brakes with the 99+ PBR front calipers and most recently the full Cobra upgrade. I am moving up to 18" wheels and just cannot see a reason to keep these around as they will just collect dust and then my OCD will kick in an I will want to clean them. I think a reasonable price is $750.00 for the set as the tires alone were over $700 mounted and balanced at Discount. What you are getting is (4) OEM rims, (4) OEM center caps, and (4) brand new (less than 1,000 miles) 245/40/17 Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec tires. Here are some pictures I took this evening and pardon the dust on the car as the weather had been too crappy on my days off to wash it.

    The car has a Maximum Motorsports k-member, front control arms, and the 96+ spindles on it with an disc to disc SN95 rear end and there are no spacers. I will get the rims cleaned up this weekend and post some pictures of them separately.

    Just finished cleaning them up. I did not put any tire shine on the tires as it makes them messy to store and I figured a person could see exactly what they are getting this way.

    Here is a top shot of all four wheels so you can see the tread on the tires:

    These are the front and back of the center caps which show they are OEM Ford:

    This is the center of one of the wheels so you can see they are OEM Ford castings:

    If anyone is interested just let me know. Not in a rush to sell but would like to get them out of my garage at some point.

    Thanks,

    Darren

    Yup but they are going on my F100 Coyote project. I live up in Tulsa, OK now so I highly doubt the shipping would have been worth it anyhow.
