yes the pattern will not fit....the 95 Cobra should have a Five lug but they will be 5X114.5....they will not work with your 5X115, ulness you want to have problems

many people run close lug patters, and yes, issues can occur.

Alot of people run 114.3 on GMs without issue, and the 114.5 is even closer.

however, if care is taken when tightening and re-torquing lug nuts, you should have no devastating issues

5x115 is a 0 mm difference from your bolt pattern...

I've ran 5 x 115'* on 5 x 114.3 bolt patterns as well. Reading above, some people said that they won't do it. Unless maybe I misread it.
