Qué? Not sure what you're looking for. Are you changing out all the tires and reusing the stock wheels, or are you wanting to simply put a larger rear tire on the car?

An excellent source of information is TireRack.com. You can look at the specifications for tires, view their diameter, and see what width wheels each tire is approved for.

Looking at putting a wider tire on the rear end of the car. Maybe 255s or 265s if possible

255/45-18's are about the only tire generally approved for an 8" wide wheel that will still be close enough to the factory diameter, while 265's look to be showing an 8.5" minimum width wheel.

That's what I was thinking. Might end up just going with some 9 inch wheels in the front and 9.5 in the back

Look for some take offs from another 2015 on any one of a dozen Mustang Forums, Craigslist, or EBay. I recently sold my 2015 GT PP takeoffs (wheels/tires/tpms) for $1300 with only 300-miles on the Pirelli PZero tires.

I like the factory 18”staggered look from the 2010 Shelby GT500 convertible which is, 18x9.5 wheels all around, 255/45/18 and 285/40/18.
