93 Cobra Style Wheel Kit
Easily add 1993 Cobra styling with this silver 93 Cobra wheel kit! The 93 Cobra wheel featured a "fan blade" style spoke design that instantly became a hit in the Fox community. The fan blades were directional so this kit includes two driver side wheels and two passenger side wheels. The silver painted finish with machined center cap provides a style that looks great on any color Mustang!
I bought this set of wheels from lmr for my 93 cobra because when I bought it came with the 03 replica wheels but I wanted the stock look of the 93 cobra. The only modification I had to do it was replace the front rotors with a pair of drilled and slotted rotors for a gt instead of the cobra and that was it. My cobra is lowered and they look awesome
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

These wheels instantly transformed my 93 GT conv't into not just another fox body Mustang. I think they look brilliant and set my car apart from others. I paired them with a set of BFG G-Force Sport Comp 2 (245/45) tires and the car handles awesome. Couldn't be happier with this purchase!! LMR, you've got a return customer.

The wheel size is the diameter of the wheel, in inches, not counting the tire.
Modern tires in North America have several other measurements associated with their size.
A tire designated as a "225/70R14" denotes a tire with the following dimensions: width of tread: 225 mm; ratio of tire height to width: 70 percent; rim diameter: 14".
Therefore a 185/70R14 has the same rim diameter and aspect ratio, but a smaller overall diameter and narrower tread face than the 225/70R14.
The easiest way to measure backspace is to lay the wheel face down onto the ground so the backside of the wheel is facing up.
Take a straight edge and lay it diagonally across the inboard flange of the wheel. Take a tape measure and measure the distance from where the straight edge contacts the inboard flange to the hub mounting pad of the wheel. This measurement is the backspace.
The photo below shows three wheels with 2", 3", & 4" backspace.
Wheel Bolt Circle
The bolt pattern or bolt circle is the diameter of an imaginary circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs. Bolt patterns can be 4, 5, 6, or 8 lug holes. A bolt circle of 4x100 would indicate a 4 lug pattern on a circle with a diameter of 100mm.
The diagram indicates the proper measuring methods. 6 lug wheels are measured like the 4 lug wheels.
The offset, measured in millimeters, can be negative or positive, and is the distance from the hub-mounting surface to the rim's true centerline. A positive offset means the hub-mounting surface is closer to the outside edge of the wheel; a negative offset means the hub-mounting surface is closer to the inside edge of the wheel. Offset affects the scrub radius of the steering and it is advisable to stay within the limits allowed by the vehicle manufacturer. If tires are fitted which are significantly wider than those specified by the manufacturer, a compromise may have to be adopted whereby a wheel with less offset is used to prevent the tire rubbing on the suspension.
Wheel Lug Pattern
Wheel lugs or bolt pattern is merely the number of bolts or lugs on the wheel. As the bolts will be evenly spaced, the number determines the bolt pattern. For example, most U.S. passenger cars have 5 bolts while compact models sometimes have only 4 and pick-up trucks can have as many as 6 or 8.
