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
Note: Priced per wheel.

Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order for an additional fee. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive. We even offer Free Nitrogen tire fill.
What is TPMS? The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS for short) is a factory installed safety feature on all 2007 and newer Ford Mustangs that alerts you when your tire pressure drops to an unsafe limit.
How do I keep my TPMS feature? Aftermarket wheels do not come with TPMS sensors. However, if you select 'Add TPMS Sensor Kit' and your specific year range from the options listed above, we'll install the TPMS Sensors in your new wheels free of charge!

These wheels are excellent. American Muscle made it fast and easy to order and they were delivered very quick. The only trouble that I experienced with these rims is the size of them. I didn't want them ... to rub on the wheel well or shocks, so in order to correct this problem I went with a slightly smaller tire: Toyo T1R 245/40/ ZR 17 This made the tire flush with the rim. Also, I had to add in a 4-lug, Baer, 1/4" spacer. This gave me plenty of room and I'm very happy with the rims. One thing I did notice is that my tail pipe on the drivers side comes close to the wheel, but a little bit of heat wrap and a re-adjustment of the exhaust makes it an easy fix. If you're willing to spend the money for the rims they are a great buy and look amazing.
I bought these rims back in winter so I put them on but didn't drive the Mustang. The Wheels look great. I bought them with tthe Nittos and they hook up very nicely. They did rub on all four tires and ... my Mustang is not lowered the suspension is still completely stock. All easy fixes...Removed the quad shocks and put 1/4" spacers all around but you might have some issues. American Muscle was great to deal with...Fast, Free shipping, Free mounting and balancing and they did a great job of protecting the rims and tires in shipping! A+++
Does this wheel come in a 17 x 8? I currently have skinnies on the front with manual rack steering. I am a little worried even at a 17 x 8 the steering is going to be a bear let alone a 17 x 9.
Hello! This wheel is not available in 17x8, the skinniest wheel that we offer this style wheel in is the 17x9! I do apologize for any inconvenience.
What size replacement center caps do I need to buy? I purchased these about a year ago and was wondering what size caps I need to buy. The only ones I've found are 2.35" but your website says they are 2 1/2".
The center cap size that will go with these tires will be the 2.5" center caps that say "American Muscle" or "AM" on them.
Would these fit on a 1982 mustang or do u have other rims available?
Hi, These wheels are designed to fit 87-93 Mustang models with 4 lugs, but they will fit 79-86 4 lug Mustangs if equipped with 87-93 front spindles.
Which senter cap are included with the 4 lug 03-04 cobra rims? For an 89 mustang gt
The center cap that will come with the 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel - 17x9 (87-93; Excludes 93 Cobra) is going to be the one that is pictured. It is the chrome with black accents American Muscle Center Cap.
rub issues I have an 88 convertible fox body, Lowered 1.2” front and 1" back. Stock 4 lug with steering limiters installed. Some say this style rim on the front will rub, others say they won’t. I have seen this rim on a stock fox with no issues but he wasn't lowered!!!! So my question is, will they rub on my front fender's or not? If they do will a 40 series tire help? Thanks for your time!!!
The 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel - 17x9 (87-93; Excludes 93 Cobra) should not have any rubbing issues in the front of the car. We would recommend using a 245-45-17 size tire, we have tested that on our Foxbody Mustang and did not run into any issues.

Great looks for fox body. Excellent quality & worksmanship. Better than any other wheel out there in the size. I\'ve had them on my 3rd Fox body now. Highly recommended wheels. Price at American Muscle is unbeatable.

Just What My Stang Needed
I purchased these wheels and red brake caliper paint, which set the car off. A picture of my car is shown above. It is the dark green LX. Great Prices and GREAT Customer Service!

Very nice wheels
I bought these wheels for a 1986 mustang gt and they really set the car off. Your site says 87-93 but with a 1/8 spacer on the front to clear the center caps and you recommended tire size the bolt right on with no rubbing on stock suspension. Great wheels.

Awesome 04 Cobra Replicas
Rims look great. Went with 255/40\'s on front and 275/40\'s on rear. No rubbing issues with Eibach pro-kit. These rims will soon be as popular as the Cobra R\'s!

I was hesitant at first with them fitting correctly after reading the reviews. I have a 1987 gt fox body. There was some adjustments that needed to be made. One was pounding down the grease caps on the front wheels and removing the quad shocks on the rear. Both are no big deal and took less than 20 min. They look amazing I did get firestone tires all together the it cost me around $900.00 Seriously not bad for great looking rims and tires. They fit like a glove and no rubbing.
