My wife and I can't agree on what wheels to buy. Based on your experience what wheels do YOU like the best on a Cobra.

NOTE: We have the Ford motorsport Cobra brake kit 13" rotors up front 11.65" in the rear so 17 inch wheels are a must.

Originality: Halibrand or equivalent
Modern: Cobra R

What can I say I like them both for completely different reasons.

Halibrand style or Torque Thrust D. In 15 inch.

I just do not like the look of a modern wheel on an old style car.

Just yesterday I saw a 58 chevy with 18 inch wheels...IMHO very ugly.

Look at the Edelbrock 454's. If you looking foir a cheaper wheel look at the powder coated wheel. If you are into a shiney wheel look at the chrome ones.

Image Wheels 15" Halibrand style wheels.The centers are powdercoated and the wheels are REALLY good looking.15"x8"front and 15"x10 1/2"rear. They are manufactured in England and available thru Mike Mack at Tri-state motorsports.I think he may be the only distributor.He has them on his website at www.tristatemotorsports.com .(I think thats it). I had 17"x10" cobra wheels on mine earlier and opted for the traditional look. I'm really happy with them,but the car handled a little better with the 17"s.It's just a matter of what you want. Good luck! Tim P.

One great benefit to the chrome Cobra R's is that with Windex and a couple of paper towels you can clean them all in less than 5 minutes.
