18s

Go to the 18s, the 19s are more expensive and there isn't that much of tire size to choose from.

Depends on your driving.

I haven't seen any 18 options for the 2015. I see a ton on American Muscle for 05-14 Mustangs, but not for the 15. I asked them why there are no 18 options and they said the base model brakes are bigger then the previous years and that the 18 inch wheels wont clear them. I really want the black AMR wheel that are so popular but I don't want to have to buy new tires with them, I would rather just use my tires with an 18 inch rim.

Well....my 2015 came from the factory with 18 inch wheels....and they do clear the brakes. The tires are 235/50 R18 Pirelli P Nero Zeroes.....

That's not true. I thought the only ones that needed 19's were bembo equiped cars

I would stay 18. 19s will be more expensive to replace and there seem to be fewer options

Yes mine came with 18 inch wheels also. I have the base model so no brembo brakes for me either. However, when I called American muscle and asked them about 18 inch options for the 2015 they said that the aftermarket 18 inch wheels will not clear even the base model brakes. This could be wrong information, however I'm just telling you what they said. If you look on their website, there are no 18 inch options for the 2015.

I went on tore rack and actually found a bunch of 18 inch that would fit the 2015. Seems the offset is like 10 mm more than the 14. I wanted to order those AMR wheels from AM but since they don't have an 18 option I actually found one that looks very similar on tire rack and am probably gonna go with that.

Have you checked the weight of these wheels compared to the stock ones? If they are about the same, then all is good......however even adding 8 pounds to unsprung weight at each corner is going to make a massive difference in slower acceleration, decreased mpg and worse handling.
I once went with heavier custom chrome wheels on a 2008 base Corvette. They ruined the off the line acceleration, and lowered my mpg by 10%. It's called rotational inertia......look it up and research the weight of every wheel you consider, or you could be as sorry as I was.
