Default Tire wheel help

Irecently purchased a 1988 Mustang GT, I am in the process of completing the 5 lug conversion, and need to get some tires and rims. I am looking at the Weld Pro Star 15" skinnies up front with Mickey Thompson drag radials in the back. My questions are: What is the correct offset and back spacing for the back? What is the widest rear rim I can run, and what is the widest size tires, without having and rubbing issues. Thanks for your help.
