Default rim sizes?

I am interested in replacing my stock rims on my '05 Mustang Coupe (V6) with bullit style rims on my stock tires. (215/65/R16) Stock rims are 16"x7". What size rims can I realistically use without replacing the tires.
Thanks in advance.

well all the current bullit wheels are at least 17". you'd have to look for after market wheels to fit your tires. you're probably better off just purchasing some GT take-offs. thats what i did. i actually found someone selling a set on craigslist which is where i found mine for cheap but online vendors are still nicely priced also.

no, you cant really get any other wheels than stockto fit our stock tires. 16" isnt a very popular aftermarket size and the smallest bullitt wheel is 17" (that i have seen for our cars) so you'd either have to buy new tires seperateor buy the wheels and tires as a set from someplace like craigslist or ebay.

yeh the only thing you can change in a tire as far as squeezing rims into them is the width, you cant squeeze a 17 inch rim into a 16 inch tire
