I have 325s on my 10.5" wheels with room to spare. You could probably fit 325s

I'm sure you could look at what 325 wide is like at a store, some might let u see it on the wheel, all depends on customer service.
Here's my 325s

And what's a good website to look for wheels besides American muscle? The best deal for 19s I found was 19x10 for about $180. I don't think it's wide enough but wider wheels are was more expensive

The 2010-Current body style can handle up to a 20" wheel and look slick. I love fat tires and I think personally the current body lowered with fat tires looks sick, any stang with fat tires looks sick.
The AMR Charcoal are personally my favorite wheels on the current body.

I'd say run 275s up front and 305-325 out back.

Does anybody know any deals on wider than 10" wheels for a mustang?

On a 10 inch rim, I wouldn't personally do a 325. It doesn't fit the rim properly, and the side wall will spill over the rim which I personally hate. It'll work if you like that balloon look though, but if you don't, I would do a 295 or 305. I'm tempted to try a 315, because they look great on 11 inch rims, but I'm not sure how they would look on 10's.

Agreed. I run 305/40/18 on my 18x10s and you wouldn't want to go much wider. The amount of sidewall has an effect on how it will mount as well.

Honestly, I wouldn't focus so much on the size. Pick a tire that fits your performance, mileage, and weather needs, then see what sizes are available and what size wheel the manufacturer recommends.

Well said, wider isn't always better, unless the only thing you're looking for is traction. But that also comes down to manufacturer, tread design and the compounds it is made of.

Probably the challenge is a good understanding of what offset is needed on a wheel per the width to not rub. If someone has a calculation for this or explanation it could probably eliminate a lot of questions on max width.
