Got new rims? What size tires do I need?

I got the stock 2014 rims about to put them on my 2000 mustang

The rims are 17 Inch.

What size tires do I need to get? I'm new with rims and tires?

225/60/17 are stock for MT cars 215/65/17 for AT. Some people go with 235's but personally think they are too wide for a 17x7 rim.

That's pushing it. I would recommend going to the tire manufacturers page and looking at the specs for the tire you want. If it shows the 'measuring rim' size as including a 7" rim then you are good.

Go to American Muscle and look at the rim size you have and they will reccomend the perfect hot rod size tires. OR... Call them, they will tell you max and min that will fit.

Sure don't actually let the company making the tires tell you what works go to a place trying to sell you stuff.
