Default wheel offset for EM cobra 1993

I'm looking to purchase a set of wheels for my 1993 EM cobra. Can anybody tell me what width and wheel offset I need to order for the front and back wheels?
I would like to buy the American Racing cobra wheels:

I'm looking to go with a 17" set up.

Thank you,
Patric

Those are the same wheels I have. If you have the Corvette suspension you'd probably be better off with the 17 x 9 1/2. You're gonna need the most backspacing you can get, which is 6 with the 9 1/2. same goes for the fronts, the most you can get, and they will stick out about 1/2 inch. I've got the full polish 15's. I don't think you'll have enough room in back for the 11's without hitting somethin on the inside. If you don't have Corvette suspension....forget what I just said.

I have the vette suspension and I have 10.5" wheels on the rear and 9" front. I went with Compomotive Halibrand style. The rear is 9.0" backspace and the front is 6.5" I believe. The guy at Compomotive was familiar with EM and knew the sizes. Oh yea, they are 17".

Messinger,
Do you have any photos to post that show the wheels?

I've got 17 x 12 w/8" BS and 335s rear. 17 x 10.5 w/8" BS and 275s front.

Edit: The pic in my gallery does not show the true 8" backspace on the front because I run a spacer for the track to clear the calipers.
