I was shopping around today for slicks for my BULLITT. It looks like 10x26 slicks are a good size BUT i can't find a 15" wheel that will work with the Cobra brakes. I would think there would be a wheel that fits the Cobra's that work on a stock BULLITT with out changing the rear roters etc.....?

Does anyone know of a slick and wheel combo that i can use on the BULLITT?

the rear brakes are the same as found on the 93 cobra R, up to the 01' cobra. I know that a 15x8 prostar will clear with a 7/16" spacer.

I've ran that combo for many rears on my 93' cobra

From experiance with my roommates 95 Cobra and my Bullitt I found that you can use a 15in wheel. I used, here is the funny thing, the same wheels that I use on my 68 stang. They are 15x8s with 4 1/2 backspacing. I have three sets of these with various types of tires. One set has BFG Drag Radials, other one with M/T ET Streets, and my "street" tires for my 68 are McCreary's. All sets fit but one of the sets needed some 1/8in washers to clear the calipers. For the price all the rims are steel Bart wheels except for my street wheels on the 68 those are Dodge Diplomat Cop car wheels. Hope that helps you figure out what size wheels and types you can try out.

You mean you were using washers behind the wheel? Not to safe is it? The last time I used wheel spacers on the rear of my 85 LX,many years ago with slicks,I ended up with 8 bent/twisted axle studs! Make sure with thick spacers,you still have enough lug nut thread engagement!

It looks like the back wheels on the stock BULLITT has 6" backspace now? Am I right?
