15 inch in most cases.

go read your tire.

it will have 3 numbers

215/45/15 the last number is your wheel size.

i hope everyone knows taking a tape measurer to your rim and reading 16 doesnt mean its 16. my stockers read 16 but theyre 15
my 17x9s read 18x10 but i can assure you they're NOT

Alright so if I was to get the 17 inch wheels off my buddys 03 cobra what tire size would I need to keep the overall size the same?

EDIT: My wheels right now are 16s with normal stock tires (I still have the same ones that came on my car, only 26k miles lol)

no thats not what I mean, i mean I want to use lower profile tires so the overall size is the same so I dont need to recalibrate anything and so my ratios are the same.

That would fit on a cobra wheel? I was wrong, there 99 cobra wheels, he says there the same as on the 03-04 cobra though.

the 99 cobra wheels are not the same as the 03-04 cobra wheels but the tire size I posted will fit both wheels regardless.
