New to Mustangs and looking for tires and wheels for a 1995 GT convertible. Car is stock suspension and currently has stock tires and wheels. Found a set of 18x9.5 (285/40R18) and 17x8 (235/45R17) wheels with 5.25" backspace on the rears and 4.5" backspace on the fronts. Tire widths are 11.22" rear and 9.25" front. Rears are 26.98" tall and fronts are 25.33" tall. Tires and wheels are brand new but being sold by private seller for $1400. Wheels are US Mag. Tires are Michelin pilot sport as3. Seller says he paid $2350 when he bought them.
Will these fit? bolt pattern is good as it's 5 x 114.3.
Looks like these. Summit has 15x7's for $191 each.

Watch out for them rear fenders and wide wheels. The fender lips will eat the tires. A good fender roller along with elbow grease will take care of the problem.

I have 345 wide tires on mine and have no problems with rubbing the fenders. Fenders rolled of course.

I cant recall my wheels offsets but my rears are 18x10.5. I had to remove the quad shocks and heavy hammer dent in some areas of the inner wheel well to clear my wide tires. Someone here will chime in on wheel knowledge. We got some great knowledgeable people here thatll lead you in the right direction.

By the way, those wheels would look fire!!
Can you put the Quad shock back on and just flip it?
