Looks like ill be picking up a Cobra in the near future (thank you thank you )
Its going to need some New shoes on the rear and I'm wondering what everyone is running
It has some 03 replicas in 17x10.5
It has 315s on it now
I was thinking a 315 MT drag radial..
Any clearance issues
I know sometimes the drag tires are wider than street tires are

I'm pretty sure you will have to roll the fenders. I have never run them myself but plenty of people here have I'm sure they can chime in. Spacers and longer studs are a must with 315's.

Mt are very good, Hoosiers are also very good. If you want I'm sellin a set Of Hoosiers for $225 315x35x17. Bought them from a member on here and decided to stay on stock wheels. So I never mounted them. About 70% tread is my guess I have pics.

The 315 MTs are probably the best performing 315/17 out there. The other options would be 315 BFGs or 315/335 Hoosiers.

I know for sure that with the 335 Hooisers you'll need to roll the fender, and that you wouldnt have to with the BFGs, but Im not 100% sure on the others
