Default Tire Size Question...Need Help!

Hello, I am new to the site and just purchase our first Mustang. I purchase a 2000 Mustang for my son's first car yesterday. I have a question for everyone. We need to buy new tires and I was wondering what size tire for a 15 inch rim most of you think looks best. Stock is 205/65/15....I was thinking something like 235/60/15 might look better but you never know until you see them on. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

Welcome! If you go with a wider tire, you also have to go with a wider rim. You need to buy the same tire size on your current tires. 235 wide requires an 8 inch rim. You current have a 7.5 inch rim. check out
