I just got my 2008 Mustang GT and looking to do a couple of things. One is getting rims but my question is if i want my tires to stick out a little and get more grip on road do i need to go with a bigger rim like an 18 inch or i can keep a 17 inch rim? Is it the tire size that will make it come out of the wheelbase more. Any advise would be great thanks.

Tire width is what you're talking about. Right now you probably have something like a 245 width which means 245mm or 24.5cm wide. You're wanting something like a 315, check out the staggered wheel/tire sets on americanmuscle.com and look at the customer pics, you'll see what you're looking for. A 17x9/17x10 or a 18x9/18x10 set would give you what you are wanting, fat rear tires.
