Wheel size!

Folks need your help! What is the perfect tires and wheel for a stock 2004 mustang? I want to put 18x9 front and rear but I'm not sure if this size is okay and it won't rub on my front fender every time I turn on the corner. Thanks guys

I've used 18x9 in front and 18x10s in the back and ran a 305 in rear and I think 245s in front and never had a problem with rubbing on those cars

Sure can, I've done it before I new you could get them in a staggered set up, most peeps just think the staggered looks better but it's just an opinion

Cool. So how is the handling? What is the difference if I put different size on rear?

Well, taller tire you go to the steering will become less responsive, and the narrow the tire the less traction, a wider low profile tire will handle better, but will also ride a little rougher
