Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at our 2003 Cobra style wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs in your choice of either black or chrome. These wheels pay tribute to the terminator Cobras that originated in 2003 and are hands down my favorite modern Mustang. With that signature supercharger whine, that aggressive front end, and these 5 spoke wheels, there wasn’t much not to like. These lightweight aluminum wheels are offered in 17” diameter only, and your choice of either triple dipped chrome, gloss black finish, and for the black deep dish option, black with a polished lip. Now we have the latter installed on our 2000 GT behind me, and on our 98 GT on our Dynojet, sporting the very stealthy gloss black look. Now it’s easy to see these wheels look great on both the SN95 and the New Edge platform. But without a doubt our most popular choice is shown right behind me on our V6, with the chrome deep dish 17x9’s up front, and the 17x10.5’s in the rear, giving us that staggered look that instantly transforms our ride into full on muscle car status. Not only that, you get to run a massive 315 size tire out back, giving you all the traction you can handle. Part of the reason you’re able to run such a massive tire in the rear is due to the fact that these wheels are offered in the very cool deep dish option. Now this simply means that the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim, resulting in that nice wide lip which looks awesome. Now with some of our other AmericanMuscle wheels you do have the option of mixing a standard fitment wheel up front with a deep dish wheel out back, however due to the design of these Cobra style wheels, you either have to go deep dish on all four corners, or standard fitment all around, it’s up to you. If you’ve never installed a new set of wheels and tires on your car, don’t worry, it couldn’t be easier. All you need is a few hand tools and a floor jack. First step is you want to make sure your car is on level ground, once you do that crack the lugs loose first, jack your car into the air and swap the wheels. That’s it, you’re done, it shouldn’t take you any more than an hour. Now obviously you can’t install these wheels without tires so you’ll definitely need to take care of that. You can always do that on your own or let us do all the work for you with one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, here we give you a couple of different tire options which are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing even if you’re lowered a little bit. You’ll even save yourself a little money in the process thanks to our free mounting and balancing and as always free shipping and handling. And with all AmericanMuscle wheels you have peace of mind knowing that your wheels are backed by a 1 year warranty on finish, and a lifetime structural warranty as well. It’s easy to say that sometimes less is more, that’s exactly the case with these wheels, the aggressive 5 spoke design of these 2003 Cobra style wheels is sure to turn any Mustang from average to terminator in no time and they can be found right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Easy "One Click" Shopping. We have combined our most popular wheels and tires together into an easy "one click" to buy combo kit. This combo kit features four wheels and tires that are the exact specifications for your year Mustang for a guaranteed perfect fit with no rubbing or clearance issues.

Standard Wheel and Tire Setup. Our Standard wheel and tire combo kit uses the same size wheels and tires on the front and the rear which allows you to routinely rotate your tires to equalize tread wear and maximize the life of the tires.

Black 2003 Style Cobra Wheel. Now you can have the same aggressive styling of the 2003 SVT Cobra for your very own Pony. They are completed in a black clearcoated finish to protect against the hazards of road chips and pitting, you also get the added benefit of never noticing brake dust.

255/40-17 NITTO Extreme Performance NT555. The Nitto NT555 is a summer-oriented, ultra high-performance street tire that was designed with the performance driver in mind. With one of the largest contact patches available, the NT555 provides superior traction and reliable handling - without sacrificing tread life. The NT555 will get you off the line quicker in the straights and provide confidence in the corners.

Free Nitrogen Fill. AmericanMuscle is proud to bring you the option to fill your tires with pure nitrogen for FREE when we mount & balance your wheel and tire order. Filling your high performance tires with nitrogen can result in longer tire life and improved fuel economy. Nitrogen can also better regulate tire pressure changes that occur with the change in temperatures throughout the year, so your Stang will be ready to roll no matter what season it is!

Application. This 17x9 Black 2003 Cobra wheel and Nitto Tire Kit fits all 1994 to 1998 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, and SVT Cobra models.

Fitment: 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 Details

Question Resolved

Are the HTR Z ll Sumitomo tires okay to drive in cold weather? I live in Va, and it can get into the 20s sometimes.

Dustin11

  • The Sumitomo HTR Z and HTR Z II are summer tires, which are comprised of a harder compound, which becomes soft in the heat during the summer. Winter tires are very soft, and begin harder with cold temperatures. Using a hard compound tire, and exposing it to cold, will cause it to become too hard and will perform very poorly. It can be used, however, I would expect very poor traction.

Would these fit on a 2003 v6? I see they're on the ones you guys put up on the website to show what they look like on certain year models.

03stang

  • The 2003 Cobra Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9 will work perfectly fine on your 2003 V6 Mustang. The only difference between this kit, which is designed for 94-98 Mustangs, and the 2003 Cobra Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9 (99-04), item # 32546, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/blackcobra-17in-9904-stan.html) is the tire size. The 94-98 kit offers 255/40-17 Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Tires and the 99-04 kit offers Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z 275/40-17 Tires.

    Review from Staggered 2003 Cobra Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 (99-04)

    Good finish and quality

    These wheels look great and the ride is nice. Only things I noticed was that the front wheels stick out past the fenders by a good inch or so more than the stock fit. Also when mounting there doesn't seem to be as much stud thread available as you would have with the stock wheel but there seems to be enough to hold the nut on firmly. I had my car aligned right before mounting these wheels to insure correct tire wear but had to have it realigned after mounting anyway because the slightly different size changed alignment. I could visually see the toe looked wrong after mounting these. Overall nice price, nice look and nice ride.

    Awesome on a fox!

    Absolutely awesome on a fox mustang! Pounded the outer lip with a 3lbs hammer and beat the snot out of the inside wall. Best way to tell where it's needed is to go ahead and put them on and reach to the back of the tire and feel where it would rub. Do this several times and they will fit without rubbing. Double check, these tires are worth it!

    Review from 2003 Cobra Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9 (99-04)

    More Grip!!!

    First off, the Sumitomos offer much more grip than the stock 245 series tire size that is stock on the car. The only thing is that they do tend to rub a bit when turning full lock on the steering wheel. The replica cobra wheels have a wonderful glossy black finish to them, and make my stang look much more badass. If anyone is looking to purchase a set of rims and tires for there mustang, look no further!!! Thank you AM, for making my first purchase on your website a kickass purchase!!!

    Sweet wheel and tire package!!

    Overall I am extremely satisfied with these wheel and tires. They look awesome on the car. The only negative about the wheels is that the two rear wheels that are 10.5 inch's wide you can actually see thru the paint around the inside of the lug nut holes. It is not that noticeable to most but I see it. I would still recommend these to anyone.

    Awesome wheels in person

    When I got my wheels I was thinking that the 17x10.5 (315/35-17) were going to rub in the rear but they didn't, they fit in just perfect, I was most worried about the front which were 275/40-17 but they didn't rub against nothing when I made wide turns, this wheels make your mustang look mean and also very easy to install, and quick shipping.

    PERFECT!

    LOVE the wheels! I have a DSG Cobra and the black Cobra wheels are exactly the look I wanted. I also purchased the low profile subframe bolts for these wheels as they are a 10.5" wheel. Without spacers they sit just inside the rear fender. If my car was to be lowered I may have to roll the fenders but as of right now they clear just fine. The wheels shipped with enough protection from any scuffing or scratching and the finish is 10/10. I could not be any happier with this purchase.

    Staggered black 03-04 Cobra Wheels

    I put them on my 01 GT and fit perfectly without any rubbing issues. My GT is lowered 1.8" on HR SS Springs, also had aftermarket exhaust (flowmaster American Thunder catback/Mac Prochamber O/R Hpipe). Fit the stance of the car perfectly and no rubbing anywhere except with the front turned far left and right. However, I have heard complaints from '04 owners saying it rubs the quad shocks and you will have to remove or flip them. I just bought an 04 Mach 1 so when winter passes we'll see if they fit. But highly recommend the staggered looks, I get a lot of compliments from people just walking by.

    Bought these on the February monthly special and couldn't be happier with the purchase. They ride very smooth and add a badass look to the mustang making all the girls double take driving by. And mines only a v6. Buy em, you won't regret it. Only thing I noticed was a tiny scratch on one wheel before I even put it on the car but that is all.

    Just awesome rims and tires

    These rims look absolutely spectacular, especially on my black 1999 Mustang. The tires are very grippy. And the install was very simple. The only thing I would suggest is to make the center caps black also. There is a significant amount of chrome on them and I think it would look better if it didn't have them at all. It still baffles me how much rims and tires cost, but I picked them up when they were on sale. I definitely recommend this tire/rim combo, especially to the people who have black Mustangs.

    Wait for summer

    these tires are amazing and beautiful! they are really wide and fit well in my 99 mustang with stock suspension, you could barely hear a bit of tire rub when you turn the steering wheel to its limit. just barely no biggy. they really stick on the curves and gas seems the same. However 2 days after i had em it rained i tried to stop quick and it lost traction rather quickly. they are summer tires so keep that in mind. I still love these and would still probably buy a set of sumitomo later on just test the limits on your car learn how it reacts in different conditions. overall love them. and shiping/customer service awesome as usual, thanks am :)

    6 months after mounting these...

    Shortly after mounting these, I started noticing steering wheel shimmy and rear end vibration at highway speed. After road force balancing and alignment/front end check, I found that one of the rear tires was out of round which AM graciously replaced even several weeks later (Thank You!). This fixed the rear shaking, but still have the steering wheel shimmy. I also noticed rubbing when making a full sharp turn. I really like the look of these, but 6 months later, I am still trying to track down the issue. AM has been kind enough to keep a log of my problems in case I need anything else replaced. I was excited to get these, but the issues have taken a good bit of fun out of it.
