This is updated. Everyone else needs to chime in on offset. Remember 17 x8.5, 26mm or 29.5mm offset.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure I need 29.5mm bs. I have a 93 Cobra and I have all stock 4 lug rotors, axles etc. I plan on getting a common 5 lug conversion kit. I assume most of them are sn95 calipers and stock fox length 5 lug axles. So I think I need to run the 29.5mm bs wheels. Does this sound correct? plz chime in guys, I don't want to hold up this list.
Thanx,
Kurt

I've gone over the last two pages of discussion and added people and offsets to the list. I took the liberty of making the offsets into two columns for easy reference.

Edit - I tried to make two columns, but the forum software put them back next to the names.

OK, due to time constraints, the 29.5mm's has 11 votes to the 26mm's 9, so the offset will be 29.5 unless 12 more people want to chime in. I can let it go until this weekend, after that it's a done deal. Thanks, MJS.

26mm for me.

FYI- '94-'95 spindles retain the stock fox track width in front. '96+ spindles widen slightly.

I've got the '94-'95 spindles and fox-length rear axles, so the current 4-lug replicas have shown that 26mm should work. 29.5mm isn't much of a difference. The only thing I'd worry about is inside clearance with shocks/quads in the rear.

I agree that both will work just fine on a Fox, and the 3.5mm difference would be barely perceptible with the wheel on a car; but that extra 3.5mm could really help with running big tires without fender lip rub in tight Fox fenderwells, which is my reason for the 29.5mm choice. And if you want them out further, you can always run spacers on the front, rear, or both, and put them exactly where you want them.

OK, due to time constraints, the 29.5mm's has 12 votes to the 26mm's 11, so the offset will be 29.5 unless 7 more people want to chime in. I can let it go until this weekend, after that it's a done deal. Thanks, MJS.

Please folks, don't be gay. Go with the 29.5mm. Like MJS said you can fix the inside clearance issue by running a small spacer. You don't want them to end up stick out of the fenders in the front which they may if you use 96 and up spindles....

12 to 12. This is starting to get all tingly, there hasn't been voting this close on the internet since the question was posed over on the Vortex of who was the hotter Daisy Duke, Jessica Simpson or Catherine Bach. Believe it or not, that pole ended at 149 to 149. A real nail biter.
