Default 1995 Cobra R Mustang Rims

I have read that Ford came out with 2 different chrome 95 Cobra R rims with a slight difference to the spacing between the spokes.....M-1007-C58 and a newer model M-1007-C50. I have also read that some were made in Japan and others were in fact made in the USA. I have also noticed in various pictures that the older C58 wheels have lettering around the valve stem, and the C50 wheels did not. I'm pretty sure I bought a C50 rim since mine does not have the lettering. (An example can be seen in photos in this thread) Differences in Cobra R rims - SVTPerformance


I bought what I believed to be a used Ford Racing Cobra R rim on Ebay, but cannot the part number of M-1007-C58 or M-1007-C50 stamped anywhere on the back. Now, I DO see the Ford logo cast into one of the spokes and MADE IN THE USA. The other things I see are attached in the pics. I would greatly assume this rim was IN FACT made by Ford with the stampings I see, but where is the Cobra R part number of M-1007-??????

It's not allowing me to upload photos for some reason, but one spoke has

the Ford logo cast in with MADE IN THE USA
another spoke has 17x9J +24 with "M L291G05" under it
another spoke has some more random numbers cast into it.
The front has the signature red Cobra R center cap

I just want to know if it's safe to say these are real Ford wheels since they are stamped and such.

Ive been seeing your thread around for a while, so i thought id chime in. I think its safe to say that theyre official ford. But TBH I think youre looking into this too much. Why are you so concerned that they are official ford? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that youre going to be paying an arm and a leg for these official OEM rims. There are PLENTY of very tasteful 95 replica wheels that look just like those but for much cheaper. I dont like to be the bearer of bad news but if youre going for an authenticity competition, then it wont matter anyways because you dont actually own a cobra R. So in your case id say, save yourself the money, get some repros, and put the extra money away for future mods. But if youre all for authenticity, then go for it. More power to you. Im not bashing, thats just my 2 cents.
