Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a look at our race inspired FR500 wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs. These wheels are inspired by the factory built turnkey racecar the Ford Mustang FR500. Now these cars were built for one sole purpose: to be all out track monsters using beefed up suspension, and a slightly more radical engine. Now the styling of these wheels is drawn from the more aggressive racecar appearance that differentiated these models from their road going counterparts. Our FR500 wheels are available in both 17 and 18” diameters, and your choice of either black, black chrome, anthracite silver, or chrome finish. Now you can buy these wheels individually if you like, however the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, that pair your new FR500 wheels up with some of the better performing tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. Not only that you get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, free mounting and balancing, and optional nitrogen fill. Now the wheels are available in both staggered and non staggered fitment and with the always cool deep dish feature. Now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, this means that the face of the rim is set further back from the rim, resulting in a nice thick lip which looks very cool. As I mentioned before you can get the wheels in a staggered fitment which simply means your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts giving you that classic muscle car look. That’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me, got the black 18x9’s up front, and as you can see we’ve got the black 18x10’s out back, giving us that really tough stance. This will also help our traction as well, thanks to the fact that we get to run a slightly wider rear tire, helping us get that power down to the ground. To give you an idea of what some of the different finishes look like we’ve equipped our 98 GT on the lift there with a set of anthracite silver FR500’s. Next to that on our Dynojet we have our 2000 GT, sporting the very sharp chrome finish. Whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured knowing that we here at AmericanMuscle have your back with a 1 year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. When you receive your new set of wheels from AmericanMuscle you’ll find that installing them is as easy as ordering them, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first while your car is still on the ground, then jack the car up and swap the wheels. Doing all of that takes you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. If you’re a fan of racecar styling and you want your ride to be inspired by a true purpose built racecar, then you’ll definitely want to check out a set of our FR500 wheels for your Mustang.

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 FR500 Wheel. Now you can have the same aggressive race styling of the Ford Racing FR500 Mustang for your very own Pony. The modern 10 spoke design looks great on all model Mustangs. They are completed in an black clear coated finish to protect against the hazards of road chips & pitting and featured a machined lip for a high-shine accent.

275/35-18 Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II. Sumitomo's HTR Z II series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressive design delivers extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, on and off the track. This HTR Z II Series Tire also features a unique flanged lip on the lower sidewall that helps protect your expensive rims from curb damage while parallel parking.

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 18x9 Black FR500 Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit fits all 1999 to 2004 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models.

Fitment: 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 Details

Free Mounting & Balancing: Professional mounting & balancing is available on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order, so you can just swap your wheels in your driveway when they arrive. We even offer Free Nitrogen tire fill (see option above).

  • FREE Mounting and Balancing in 48 hours
  • State of the Art Onsite Tire Facility
  • Scratch-Free process + Hidden Weights
  • TPMS Sensors installed free on 07+ Mustangs (see wheel page for details)
  • Free Shipping on any order to the continental 48 states
  • Please allow an extra 1 to 2 business days on your wheel and tire package for mounting and balancing

What is TPMS? The Tire pressure Monitoring System is a safety feature on all 2007+ Ford Mustangs that alerts you when your tire pressure drops to an unsafe limit.

How do I keep my TPMS feature? Aftermarket wheels don't have TPMS sensors. If you select 'Add TPMS Sensor Kit' and 'Add TPMS Tool' at the top of the page when you order your wheels, then chose Free Mounting & Balancing when you add tires, we'll install the sensors for free!

  • Save Money - we sell at a fraction of Ford's price and install for free
  • Save Safe - keep your safety feature intact
  • No warning light - lose the annoying dash light that appears if your sensors are missing

For more Information, check out TPMS Sensor Kits or TPMS Tool in detail.

Are these tires directional? I plan on autocrossing my Mustang so I want to get the most rubber I can under the car. I also think I would like the staggered look and was just wondering if the tires are directional? If they are, I guess there would be no way to rotate the staggered set, right?

FordGT40

  • Yes, the NT555 tires are directional. So unfortunately, you are correct in stating that you can't rotate these tires.

Question Resolved

will a bigger wheel size differ my speedometer?

Schmitty

  • Your speedometer will change very little if you have the same or very close tire diameter. Search the Internet for a tire diameter calculator. Then you input both tire sizes and it will show the effect on the speedometer. There are also apps for smart phones that do the same thing. Silmplly put larger wheel equales shorter side wall.

do you need to do alignment after installing wheels & tires ?

mojo1223

  • I purchased American Muscles wheel and tire package last year....(see pic of Foose rims 18" staggered set on my Grabber Orange GT/CS on website) They went on without a hitch. Only thing I had to do was get a new set of lug nuts as the stock ones didn't fit. ( note, get the splined lug nuts along with a locking lug nut....having both is like having two sets of locking lug nuts) A wheel alignment was not nessarary as I didn't change the suspension with putting the wheels on. If you can change a tire....it's really as simple as that. Just swap out the old with the new and enjoy. Be prepared for all the comments on how cool your new rims look. Make sure to post a pic of your car with your new wheels on Ameican Muscle ...I did...

    Looks amazing on black

    Made my Mach 1's appearance better by 1000. The wheels came without any blemishes on them at all and tires were correct air pressure. The stance is great and the tires are pretty good though I haven't gotten to use them on a warm road yet

    Aggressive Appearance

    I was a little unsure about installing a staggered set, as I've never owned/driven a vehicle with them before. The wheels looked amazing, minus a couple very miniscule scratches. The Sumitomo tires feel amazing as opposed to the all-weather ones I had prior to. The overall package gave my car a much more aggressive, muscular look to it, as opposed to the Cobra wheels I had on it before. Definitely will be ordering from AM again in the future!

    FR500 wheels and tires

    As far as appearance goes the wheels and tires look great. One wheel had a minor scratch on it no biggy. However the description they give about the wheels not rubbing is completely incorrect. The tires rub pretty badly when turning the wheel sharply. If I had known this I would have bought a more narrow setup but 18 by 9's on the front doesn't work for my 2004 V6 Mustang.

    18' STAGGERED SET FOR 99 COBRA

    SHIPPING boxed were really torn up,checked all 4 wheels and they were ok.Installed them in less than 30 min.and checked psi.lowered the rack and checked the rear clearance several times on the rear due to having irs on the 99 cobra,the bolt that holds the rear bar might rub against the tire/rim.More than enough clearance.Was really surprised the way they grip.Hugs the turns well,very quiet tires.They look nice on my black cobra convert and Im very happy with the set.Thanks again.Harry from Chicago....

    The perfect "muscle car" look

    I was worried about downsizing from my 19" Konig's but after installing these I am very glad I changed it up! They have the perfect profile and tire width to fit the wheel wells. Every time I look at my car now I love it even more because of these wheels. Absolutely amazing looking wheels for my car.
