The stock size on the 2000 Cobra R was 265/40ZR-18. That was the only Mustang with 18" rims (2005 will also). That size should fit for sure. Go to and look up the hight and rim width requirements for 275/40-18, 275/35-18, and 285/35-18. You can probably go one size bigger on the front and one or two sizes bigger out back. I know people run the 285 on 9.5" rims, but I don't know if they'd be too much for a 9" rim.
I have 275/40-17s and they don't rub. You can compare the dimensions of them from tirerack data also.
