Widest rear tire I can go

I have a 2008 mustang v6 with stock rims and tires and I wanted to go wider in the back.

Size is 215/65/17

Do you think I can go 255?

I also have 2 inch lowering springs if that changes anything

255 should be the VERY MAX you should go.

Lowered car doesn't really matter, However, I'd go with something more low profile, Like 255/40ZR17

Makes the car look better.

And shouldn't it be 255/65/7?

Just so you know the first number is the width of the tire in mm, the second number is the aspect of the sidewall (percentage of the first number gives you the thickness of the sidewall in mm and the last number is the wheel size.

For example 255/65/17
255mm wide
Sidewall is 65% of 255
17 inch wheel

Hope this helps.
