Tire Wheel placard on the door

Hi Guys, I am looking at installing wider rims (wheels) and in Australia if you increase the width of the rims by more than 1 inch of the maximum sold by the manufacturer you need a engineering certificate and only can go to a max width 2 inches. A way around this is if a same type vehicle is sold with larger tires and wheels I do know the 200 Cobra R has 18x 9.5 ".
My vehicle which is a 2001 SVT Cobra has the standard 17x 8 ".
Is it possible to get the door sticker (placard) from a 2000 SVT cobra R showing the increased wheel size?
Where can I obtain one of if the 2001 SVT CXobras were sold with larger wheels than 17x8" where can I obtaine this info?

Your best bet would be to contact Ford directly on this; start with a local dealership service dept. and work your way up from there if necessary.

2001 GT Convertible
/1967 Coupe
All the usual bolt-on's /200 I6, C4

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4

I picked up two of them some years back off Ebay. I put one on a laptop and the other on my tool box.

I looked again today and didn't find any.

Here is a picture of what it looks like in case you can't find one. You might be able to get a "sign shop" to make one for you.
