Description
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 Machined FR500 Wheel. Now you can have the modern split "Y" spoke styling of the FR500 Mustang for your very own Pony. These FR500 rims look like they're tearing up the track, even when just sitting in your garage. The velvet smooth look of the machined aluminum face makes for an intense contrast against the black inlays on this wheel for an incredibly sharp presentation. These machined wheels feature a satin clear-coat finish to protect against the hazards of road chips and pitting.

255/40-17 Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Tire. Sumitomo's HTR Z II series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 255/40-17 delivers extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, on and off the track. The HTR Z II Series Tires also feature 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 Standard 17x9 Black Machined FR500 and Sumitomo Tire Kit fits all 1994 to 1998 Mustangs.

Fitment: 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 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

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.

    Great wheels and tires!

    Can't believe how great these look on my Redfire Pearl '04. Just the right (IMO) balance of black and bright polished aluminum. No clearance issues except with the tailpipes on my Pypes catback, didn't actually rub but were maybe a little too close,had to reset the pipes in the mufflers and hangers,OK now. Size on the tires are awesome and they ride great. You'll need some slash guards (aka mudflaps) on the back those 315's are WIDE.

    AMAZING

    After a stock wheel of mine cracked I had the choice of replacing it or replacing them all. I chose replacing all of them and man was that a great choice. These wheels are amazing they make the black look so much sleeker.

    Review from FR500 Style Black Machined Wheel - 17x9 (94-04 All)

    Most complements on any wheels I've owned

    I've been looking at new wheels for my 1995 to replace the Cobra R wheels that has been on it since 2001. Loved the look of the FR500 wheels but didn't like the finishes offered. American Muscle was the only place that offered the black machined wheels and I fell in love with them. Love the contrast it offers without having to run the played out solid black wheels everyone else is running. Ordered on a Sunday night and they showed up at my house on Wednesday afternoon. Packaging was awesome and the tire shop that installed the tires commented on how nice the wheels are. Had them on the car for four days and have received more complements on them than I did in the 15 years I had the Cobra R's on the car.

    Excellent wheel and tire combo

    I've had these on my car for a few months now and I couldn't be happier with them. They look great and the fit is perfect. These tires combined with HandR springs and Koni shocks and struts have my car cornering like it's on rails. I am very happy with this purchase!

    Awsome staggered look (talk about big MEATS!)

    I decided to change up my Cobra to a beefier look and awesome rims. So I looked over many different types that AM offered and saw these beauties. I ordered them and was totally in aw when I got the them on the snake. Talk about changing the looks!! These monsters on the back and matching front made a serious mean look. I got many double takes on and compliments and how they changed the appearance of my cobra. Also noticed and significant reduction in road surface noise as well. Thanks AM !!

    Review from FR500 Style Black Machined Wheel - 17x9 (94-04 All)

    Wow!

    Im 17 years old and finally saved enough to buy these wheels. I was a little worried about going with 17's and also the machined finish. But after receiving these, i fell in love. The pictures online don't do them justice! These 17's feel and look pretty big in diameter. Very satisfied with this purchase. The finish also looks amazing, very shiny and glossy! Cant wait to get them on my stang! Also, shipping was amazing. Each wheel went a different route yet all made it here in two days at the same time, here in Missouri!

    Review from FR500 Style Black Machined Wheel & NITTO Tire Kit - 17x9 (94-98 All)

    17" Black machined wheels with (4) Nitto 255/40R17 tires

    I have a rare color '94 GT in Opal Frost. I wanted a wheel that would help the color "pop" with the machined steel and still add some contrast with the black, side painted spokes. I found it with these wheels. Simply beautiful. I am a little disappointed with the size of the back tires; they are not "tall" enough. I was given the impression they are the same size as the stock tire, however I believe they are 1/2-3/4" smaller. Had I known, I would have ordered (or asked for) a taller tire, but I trusted the website to send what they believe is correct. They probably look good on a car that is lowered a couple inches. Having no intention of doing that, I may switch the back ones out for 255/55R17's.

    FR500 wheel and tire kit

    Easy to order had to wait a few days longer because they were out of stock. Saved money and used factory lugs from Bullitt wheels. One wheel was missing cap and stem cover but I had some at home. Could be balanced a little better. A little vibration at some speeds. Look nice on my white 04 GT convertible. Like the wider stance.
