I'm assuming your new car didn't come those items....maybe check local junk yards. If you have the big Brembo brakes, I don't think a temporary spare tire will fit anyhow.

Junk yard or you can order them from ford. But with the staggered wheels and bigger brakes a standard spare may not fit.

You will need a 19" spare which Ford doesn't make. Fords normal 18" 2015 mustang spare will not fit...on the front, because of the brakes.

OR....
You COULD use the factory Ford Mustang spare (18")but only on the rear. So if you get a front flat, you'll need to jack it up, take off a rear normal wheel, put it on the front, then put the spare on the rear.
They're not expensive ordered at the dealer and fit under the rear trunk mat.
But you'll need two jacks then.

I had the same issue with my 2011 GT with Brembro brakes. I googled spare tire for 2011 Mustang GT and found a good solution on one of the Mustang Forums. Another owner had worked with an online tire company, "Discount Tire", no not Tire Discounters. They came up with a solution using an aftermarket 18" custom rim with an all weather tire. Bought jack from a Ford dealer site. Here is the actual link:

This is the solution I used for my 2011 GT with Brembro Brakes. worked great, just had to buy a jack and wrench. Discount Tire sold the proper lugs for the aftermarket wheel.

Mu solution

I hope this reply works, my first two didn't. I found a solution on another Mustang Forum for the Brembro fit problem. Another fellow worked with Discount Tire and came up with an 18" aftermarket wheel and tire that fits over the brakes and comes to within .19" of overall height of factory setup. I will include the link so that you read yourself. About $300 for wheel and tire.
