Probably never. Ask the manufacture. I would clean it off and use it.

You're also in the wrong forum. I think you are asking about an 03/04 Cobra?

Depending on the tire you pick, you can go as wide as 285 or so. I have 305s on a 10 inch wheel. Tire rack used to have a pretty good estimator of what fits what.
