need to find tire sizes

i have a 2005 mustang gt and i am turning it into a true retro car with a pitched back end and the offset wheels and tires. My question is what is the biggest rear tire i can have as a daily driver and what would be the best front tire size to match the offside looking for.

275's front, 315's in the back, anything larger will most likely rub

275s and 315s always a good choice!

Re: need to find tire sizes

Tires also depend on the width & offset of the wheel.

I have 255/40's on 19x8.5" wheels in the front & 285/35's on 19x10" wheels in the rear.

Re: need to find tire sizes

If you visit Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels, then enter your vehicle infos, click "Tires" then you'll see optional tire sizes available that won't change your speedometer calibration.

Here is a link as an exemple for my 08 Bullitt:
