I've been looking through past threads about rim and tire size. I just want to make sure I buy something that will fit my 89 sc with a 1.5" drop. Im looking at a set of cobra r's 17x9 with 255/40/17. I know they will fit the back but I was wondering about the front. Will there be any problems with spacing or rubbing. Will there be any mods....

Thanks
Doug

They will fit fine. They're 10" wide and about 1.5" shorter than stock. Same as a 245/50/16 which half the people on this site use.

Will this set up change my speedo. What upgrade is most used for larger rim / tire set ups. 17's or 18's
Thanks

It will be off a little but not enought to worry about. As far as the rim size it is all personal preference.
