    I 'think' they may work, area of concern is the clearance between the strut body and rim/tire up front. I would also check rear clearance to the quad shock as well, just to be sure. Rear quads can be 'flipped' to gain additional clearance, so not as big of an issue. I am pretty sure I had more than 5mm (0.197") clearance to my struts, but not every car is the same. You could dry fit just the rim to see before mounting a tire to it for return reasons. I did just that with my TSW's to confirm clearances.

    Wow, can't believe it has been 6 years too! Interesting thing about the TSW wheel finish, my Nurburgring's are still shining like new after 8 seasons of use/abuse.

    As another TSW wheel owner, the 17x8 will pop on with minimal issues (rear fender lip roll), just stick with the 35mm offset. Back the the regularly scheduled thread...

    I reconditioned the 98 cobra wheels and installed them Monday. The TSWs began to peel which is odd because I rarely drive the car. In the last 5 years I’ve put 86 seats in it, installed the PiMP ecu (world of difference), new tires, front wheel bearings, cluster bezel, NOS yellow fog lamps with white covers, I had to change the manifold because it would burn plug wires... that turned out to be the timing Issue on the previous ecu. The PiMP was the best investment. It doesn’t have an issue keeping up with the new coyote 5.0s on the street. (So long as they’re stock). I re-wired the fan because it would drain the battery. It could use a larger fan as the weather in NC is brutal in the summer time. Awesome car. Hard to believe I’ve had it for almost 6 years.
