A Quick Guide to Wheel/Tire Sizing for Late-Model Mustangs

Aftermarket wheels and tires have always been popular upgrades for performance enthusiasts. For late-model owners, a wheel/tire swap is often the very first upgrade because it won’t void the factory warranty yet can transform the entire attitude and personality of a new car or truck.

The trick is simply making sure the new wheels and tires fit the vehicle.

We’ve taken the guesswork out of upgrading stock late-model Mustang wheels and tires by doing the necessary homework. The chart below includes factory wheel/tire sizes, bolt circles, and backspacing measurements for 2005-up Ford Mustang models to help you quickly and easily choose aftermarket rims and tires of the same size. It also includes a few popular plus-size options that will fit each specific model in case you desire a more radical change to your vehicle’s rolling stock.

As you browse the chart for your specific Mustang model, there are a couple things to keep in mind. First, the measurements in the chart are designed to work with your vehicle as it came from the factory. If you’ve made changes to your suspension system, braking system, or other related areas, you’ll need to verify fitment before purchasing your rims and tires. Also, the larger rear wheel/tire upgrade options listed in the chart are just that—options. You may decide to opt to stay with a smaller or stock size.

We’ll provide this same information for other late-model vehicles in the coming weeks, but for now, here’s the rundown on late-model Mustang wheels and tires (click on the charts to enlarge):
