How about posting pics of your mustang with tire and wheel make and sizes and backspacing. I know dodgestang has a nice chart but only a couple pics. So lets see more, maybe some computer savvy person could link somewhere so it can be refered back to at any time.
Me im looking on more info and pics of 65-66 mustangs. I like the look of more tire, so it will be either a 15" or 16" wheel max with the widest rear tires as possible.

Here's some late model Mustang 17x8 wheels on a '66. Tire size front is 225/45. Rear is 255/45. Front required 1" adapters, rears required 2" (but the axles/housing has been narrowed).

Well... they don't rub yet, but all I've done is roll it in and out of the shop. ;)

No, they won't rub. I've cycled them through every conceivable position and there's plenty of room. However, I'm using a MII front suspension and this may provide a difference over the stock suspension configuration.

The rear tires/wheels will jump to 275/45 and 17X9 as soon as the tires wear out.

What type of brakes are you running up front? IIRC, the grananda setup adds to the width of the front so you may need smaller spacers.

I'm running the Coy's C-67. 17X8 at all four corners with 4.5" of back spacing. Tires are 245/45ZR17 up front and 255/45ZR17 in the rear.(could have gone a little wider in the back)

These are 14" Sears snow tires in the back and 17" Bridgestones up front. Its a tough look to duplicate..
