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.

275/35-18 NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire. The Nitto Tire NT555 275/35ZR18 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. Both the tread pattern and the compound were optimized for dry performance. The highly rigid tread blocks provide stability while prolonging tire 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 Standard 18" Black Machined FR500 and NITTO Tire Kit fits all 1999 to 2004 Mustangs.

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

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

switching from 17 to 18 in wheels what are the ups and downs of going from 17 to 18 inch wheels on my 2004 Mustang?

Iamscfastgun Year: 2004 Model: GT

  • There won't be too much of a handling change I went from 17 to 19 and it's great they look amazing and aren't too big and einach springs do help with both the look and performance

    Great Upgrade, Doubtful about fitment, but was actually perfect.

    I purchased the wheel and Nitto tire combo about six months ago after reading some of the reviews here on A couple of reviews had stated that the fitment was not perfect in the front and that wheels spacers would be required so that the wheels would not rub the inner fender when turning, and so that the wheel itself would not touch the brake caliper bracket. (2003 Mach I) In preparation for this potential issue, I paired the wheels and tires with a set of 25mm wheel spacers from H&R for the front and rear. (Great product as well) Long story short, spacers were not necessary at all. I noticed that the wheel backing that sits flush with the wheel hub is actually tapered slightly and gives just the perfect amount of clearance so that the front wheels do not come into contact with the brake caliper bracket. It makes me wonder if AM learned of this issue and revised the design of the wheel at some point after the reviews I read were posted. The tires have fantastic grip even without heat cycling, and when inflated properly the sidewall stiffness is adequate enough to keep my car planted when I'm testing the limits of grip around corners. I'm highly satisfied with my wheels and tires, but now I have four wheel spacers that I don't need.

    Like a Cadillac

    The wheels completely changed the look of my mustang. I would recommend these wheels over the chrome. The black machined is shiny and stands out, but is not overbearing in my opinion. They turn a lot of heads and I recieve a lot of complements on them. As for the tires, the difference is like night and day from my old ones. I can hardly feel bumps in the road. The only issue I had was I had to get spacers for the wheels because they would grind when I would back up and cut the wheel.

    I love my new combo! The FR500 wheels have the finish that I love. I like chrome but its too shiny and I dont care for polished aluminum. I found this combo and was estatic because it has the machined finish which I think is best because its clean and catches your eye. Its just enough shine to attract attention and the tires are phenomenal. I went through the gears and usually roast first and second, but with the Nittos she gripped right at launch and when I snatched second she chirped and kept moving!. This is what I was looking for and any Mustang owner would do themselves an injustice if they didnt get this combo package! It is worth every penny I paid for it!

    Night and Day

    One of the best mods I r done. I was running Cobra R's before I got these, they were nice but the Machined FR500 made all the difference. I'm running 18x9 in the front with 265/35 and 18x10 deep dish with 295/35 in the back. I went with Nitto NT05 all around and it looks amazing.

    These wheels made my 02' GT look rowdy. The chrome on black finish really stands out. I had already lowered my ride and installed Flowmasters, but these babies were the icing on the cake!
