Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with and I’m taking a look at our S281 Saleen style wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs. These aggressive 5 spoke wheels are inspired from the early SN95 Saleens, now these cars really raised the bar for all Mustangs in terms of both styling and performance. A big part of that bold, in your face styling can be attributed to these 5 spoke wheels. Our lightweight aluminum Saleen style wheels are available in an 18” diameter in your choice of either chrome, black chrome, gloss black, or matte black. Now all these finishes are guaranteed for one year and also feature a lifetime structural warranty as well. We all love that classic muscle car stance right? Who doesn’t? Well now your ride can share that exact same look thanks to these optional staggered fitment wheels, staggered fitment simply means that your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts, which not only looks great, but will also help you get that power down to the ground, and make for more responsive handling. If you check out our 2000 V6 right behind me you’ll see that we’re rocking the 18x9’s up front, with the staggered chrome 18x10’s in the rear, giving us that look that speaks for itself. Now if you’re not a big fan of this look and you want to keep the ability to rotate your tires frequently, these wheels are also available in a non staggered, or standard fitment, which simply means you have the same width wheels on all 4 corners. The best way to get an idea of how the wheels might look on your own car, is to actually see them on a car, well with that in mind check out our 2000 GT behind me on our lift, sporting the very sleek black chrome Saleens, and next to that on our Dynojet we have our 98 GT with the black 18x9’s on all 4 corners. We here at AmericanMuscle always offer free shipping and handling and free mounting and balancing with all new wheel and tire purchases, so even though you can buy these Saleen style wheels by themselves, you should definitely check out some of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, which give you a couple of different setup options that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. All you need to take your car from stock to Saleen is a floor jack, some standard hand tools, and about an hour’s time. All you need to do is simply crack the lugs loose first, jack the car up and swap the wheels, it’s that easy. The early S281 Saleens are a true work of art, from their all out supercar performance, to their aggressive racecar styling, these 5 spoke wheels from are a great way to pay tribute, and give your ride that same racecar styling, check them out!

Step out in Style. The classic star pattern of the 5 spoke Saleen wheel screams for attention from even the most jaded speed addict. Possibly the easiest thing you can do to make your pony stand out from the herd.

Gloss Black. Black out your Pony's wheels for a sick stealthy effect that everyone will be envious of. These wheels are clear-coated to protect against the hazards of road chips and pitting, you also get the added benefit of never noticing brake dust.

Lifetime Warranty. Our wheels have a lifetime structural warranty, which means you'll never have to worry about the workmanship of your new wheels.

1 Year Finish Warranty. Your new Mustang wheels have a 1 year warranty against defects in the finish of your wheels. Drive them daily, not just to the shows! For more information on wheel warranties, click here.

Application. This Saleen Style Wheel fits the front or rear of the 1994 to 2004 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models. Stagger with 17x10.5 Saleens on the rear for a classic muscle car stance & improved traction.

I chose this wheel due to the fact that I wanted the "new-age" appearance that the other rims(such as the Bullitt rims) seemingly didn't provide. The quality of the wheel was far beyond what I expected ...

275's fit the front? Will 275's fit the front on my car that's dropped 2"? Would fenders need to be rolled?


  • Yes, they will clear but during hard cornering, you may experience some fender liner rub if your liners are not perfectly positioned. My car is lowered as well and you get used to the sound on the track until the tires cut a grove in the liner. Try the NT01 for a great track day tire.

Can I put 245/45-17 tires on these rims? A.M. recommends 275/40-17 tires for these wheels, but when I browse around other sites, 17x9 rims usually come with a recommendation of 245/45-17. So can I put 245/45-17 tires on these rims despite A.M.'s recommendation? And is there a specific reason why the 275's are recommended over 245's? Thank you


  • You can absolutely use either size with the 17x9 wheel. Generally, the 17x8 wheel is recommended with the 245/45-17 tires, but they can certainly be used with the 17x9 as well. If you wanted to, you could actually stagger your 17x9 wheels with two different tire sizes to give the allusion of (2) wheel sizes. The 245/45-17 and the 275/40-17 have the same side wall height and they'd be a great match. That being said though, you can use the 245/45-17 in all four corners or the 275/40-17 tires without any clearance or rubbing issues! Hope this helps!

Can you use either a 3/4'' or a 13/16'' lug nut with these rims? And if so, what is the more common one?


  • Both the 3/4' and 13/16" will fit with the Saleen Style Black Wheel, however, the 13/16" makes it a little cramped when using a socket, and it could damage the finish. The 3/4" lug nuts are slightly smaller, and will leave a little extra room for your socket.

    I chose this wheel due to the fact that I wanted the "new-age" appearance that the other rims(such as the Bullitt rims) seemingly didn't provide. The quality of the wheel was far beyond what I expected for the price. The finish looks amazing and completely transformed the look of my car. My car now turns more heads than ever. I was skeptical that the 17inch rim would be too small but it turned out being the perfect size. I could not be happier that I purchased this wheel. Overall, these wheels have been the best upgrade that I have done to my car and I highly recommend them. Thanks AM!!

    Review from Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel & NITTO Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 (99-04 All)


    I am amazed and shocked from purchase to how aggressive the tire and rims make my Mach 1 look and last but not least, a comfortable drive for sport tires. First the purchase I received them sooner than expected and they came fully balanced and filled with nitrogen as promised. Once I put them on my car OMG, the stance was noticeable a couple of times I thought it growled at me and my car was not turned on, plus a real head turner with those tires and rims while cruising the strip. Amazingly no road noise and balance is perfect. The grip ha ha ha ha I had to peal my head from the headrest when I launched the car, there was no tire spin at all. If you plan on purchasing this set of tires and rims, IT IS WORTH THE MONEY. NOTE" If you own a MACH 1 like me and you purchase the 17's. The center cap from your heritage rims fit perfectly on the 17" Saleen rims. The black rims and black center cap with the Pony Tribar is ICING ON THE CAKE.

    Review from Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel & NITTO Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 (94-98 All)

    Wheels and tires are sweet!! Couple small problems on my 95 GT.

    First off let me say that these wheels and tires are awesome! They look great mounted on my 95 GT which is lowered about an inch. Front 17x9's went on without any issues. However, when I put the rear wheels and tires on (17x10.5 with 315's Nitto's) the tire rubbed on both the tailpipes and quad shocks. I tried to flip the quad shocks over but they still rubbed so I removed them and will be upgrading my lower control arms instead. My tailpipes were aftermarket hand made so I just cut them off and will be going with exhaust dumps instead. The final issue I had was a very small bit of rubbing happened in the rear wheel wells when taking turns. To fix this I just took a hammer to the spot on the inner wheel well that was rubbing and pounded it in until it was clear of where the tire rubbed (can't be seen unless you take the tire off and look for it). Covered up that area with fresh plasti-dip and now I can drive without issue. I had this same setup on an 01 GT and had no issues at all so this could be specific to the 94-98 body style. Either way I am extremely happy with this setup and the few small issues that I ran into were fixed in under an hour; well worth it!

    Sharp looking wheel!

    Ordered these in 17x9 for some 255/40R17s I am putting on my '99. Out of the box, they look pretty good. A close inspection revealed a few surface flaws in the paint (as well as some rub-through where the center cap attaches) on a few of mine. Not a deal breaker, but those small faults kept these rollers out of 5-star range. Not sure how durable the finish will be in the long run, but time will tell. Can't beat them for the price, though. The Saleen styling is already a classic and I think these look mighty tasty on any New Edge. I'm going to pair mine with some different center caps and chrome lug nuts for a bit of bling.

    So, after returning two sets of wheels for my 2000 Mustang(because the sales people kept telling me my offset was wrong and kept giving me different offsets so my rim would hit the caliper) I decided to check out American Muscle. I "liked" their page on Facebook and decided to try it out, what did I have to lose right? I was pretty specific in what I wanted my wheels to look like and then I saw these Black Saleen wheels and I knew I had to have them! They were exactly what I wanted! And they were cheaper than the previous sets and free shipping! So I called to order and was promised that those wheels would fit my 00. They arrived in 2 days in perfect condition. I am ordering the 270/45/17 tires next week and I am sure that I will be equally as happy! American Muscle has become my ONLY source for anything I need for my car now. I can't wait to order some more items! Amazing job!

    New Shoes

    I ordered these wheels to replace a set of rims that had been on my GT for 13 years. I decided to not stagger the wheels and tires so needed some new rims. I luv the look of the black rims and the way they sit in the wheel well is perfect. I put a new set of Continental all season tires on the new rims as I am moving from Southern California to Washington State. I installed 4 255 x 40 x 17 tires with no issues with the rims and the clearances at stock ride height is perfect except when making lock to lock turns there is a slight rub of the inner tire on the sway bar. All in all I am very pleased with the look.

    Not satisfied.

    Got the wheels put on with brand new tires. 3 out of the 4 were not true. They were oval not round and would not balance out. I took them off of my car because it shook so bad. I had to put the stock wheels back on because I started college and have to do a lot of highway driving. I would like to get this problem resolved by getting new wheels.
