Probably, but they would likely require some fender lip rolling and inner fenderwell clearancing.

I have 15x10 wheels with 295x50x15 tires on my 86 and they are very tight and rub at times. The backspacing on my wheels is 5.5", but it needs to be 6.5" for better fitment.
I will probably end up installing some mini-tubs and shortening the rear end by 1" on each side to fulfill my need for large rear tires, but that's not a project eveyone would want to undertake I'm sure.

Re: wheel fitment.

Are you sure about that backspacing, it's less than 1"?

The 25MM is the offset.
The backspacing is not listed.
P.S. Those are also listed for the 94-04 and may not fit well on your car.

The backspacing for those wheels are going to be 6.52". You will more than likely have to roll your fenders.

Check out oewheelsllc.com they have a great selection of mustang rim and tire packages for our cars and I think they guarantee fitment.
