CR Rim and Tire Combo, American Racing Rims?
Has anyone used American Racing VN427 Shelby Rims for their CR? I read all the posts I could find for CR tire and rim discussions so I believe I gleaned plenty of tire input and backspacing suggestions for rims. Wanted to throw out what I plan to purchase for any feedback before ordering. I was aiming for roughly 4" backspacing in front, and 4.5" in rear from input on combinations others have used successfully.

American Racing VN427586542/15x8/4.26" backspacing/-6 offset
Cooper Cobra 235x60xR15

American Racing VN427586545/15x8/4.5" offset/0 offset
Cooper Cobra 275x60xR15

American Racing only makes 15x8 then jumps to 15x10 rims, no 15x9. Im nervous going bigger (295x50xr15 tires) or the 15x10 rims may have fit issues with the fiberglass? They have a 15x10/5" Backspacing/-12 offset which could work?
