    03" Cobra. The newer birds (mn12s) mount differently, same center section but everything else is different.

    A guy came into the shop yesterday and saw my old wheels, he asked me if I'd be interested in some 17X8 tri bars off a 97 cobra, What do you all think?? He brought them over today to let me see them.

    I don't particularly like them, but they will work to roll around on after I get the front brakes back on.

    Oh ok, I thought those were the wheels you were going with on the finished product. They will work fine for rollers, lol.
