my 65 has 16x9.6 in the back and 16x7.6 inch in the front. You might be able to go a little wider in the back, I wouldn't go any wider in the front, mine have very little fender clearance.

edit: I'm also at stock height, so if you're lowered/going to lower, may want to make sure you're going to have the clearance on top (mine rub on the fender flare when i go over hard bumps)

you have any pictures of your car. Also what style rims looks best on these mustang. Mines a 65 coupe. I was think some style that looks like bullits or classic muscle car look.

I like the bullitts. That's without wheel caps also, but they're coming soon as my tax return comes ;)

Though, it all depends on your tastes, lots of wheels look good imo. Long as they're not too modern. I like the low profile understated look of the grey bullitts.

Ive got 17x8 all around with 225 40 r17 in the front and 245 50 r17 in the rear. Make sure you get at least 4.75" backspacing.

It is all in the back spacing and outside tire diameter.

The front need to be 24" or less in diameter.

Back spacing on the front is best with 4.75" back spacing. But 4.5 will work.

Took a quik look and this is the smallest I could find for a good price.



Size: 215/40ZR18
