needs less sidewall imo.
The weights are used to balance your tires so they wear evenly.. Those have nothing to do with authenticity. Every set of rims should have those weights.Just curious, if you just put 1" wheel spacers on the back and not the front will it create issues with alignment or any issues? I got some 245/45/17 on cobra rims and sometime in the later future i wanna put 1" spacers in the back to make the stance look a little better but the front looks fine imo. I would just upgrade to 9"/10" whenever my tires are gone but i like rotating my tires for more life and 10" wouldnt make that work.
Also how do you see if your rims are authentic?? I got some 17" chrome cobras from a mexican guy who seemed to know no english and nothing about them at all hell they were probably stolen but it was for a good price and they have the cobra centercaps but they wiggle around a little bit and after reading this thread i wonder if he just stuck cobra centercaps inside a replica lol. The rims have a bunch of little weights on the inside of em 5+ for sure maybe up to ten if that means anything i dunno.
Well i just ran out to the garage to go lift up my stock 17" aluminum GT rims and the cobra rims are definitely lighter by about 5-10 pounds and i just put on my rear cobra rims about 2 days ago when i replaced my broken rear sway bar. Both rims are 17" and both have the same size tire on with about the same air pressure so i doubt the tires weight is that much different but the cobra rims are definitely lighterhow heavy are they?
factory authentics are pretty light, reps are HEAVY AS ****.
