- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at the 10th anniversary cobra style wheel, fitting all 94-04 Mustangs available in your choice of either Anthracite silver, black with a polished lip, or chrome. These split 7 spoke wheels were only found on the 2003 terminator cobras, which marked 10 successful years for Ford’s SVT edition. Taking a closer look at the wheels themselves you’ll notice a lightweight aluminum construction, and a design that’s unlike any other Bullitt wheel, or typical 5 spoke design. They are a flat faced wheel, meaning there’s no real lip however once you start getting into the wider sizes such as the 10.5’s the face of the wheel becomes more concave, which in my opinion looks really cool. Speaking of sizing, the 10th anniversary cobra wheels are available in 17 and 18” diameters, and 9, 10, and 10.5” widths, so you could toss the 10, or 10.5’s on the rear, and put the 9’s up front and pull off the staggered fitment if you really wanted to. As you can see we do have these wheels installed on some of the cars around the shop just to give you a better idea of how they look. Starting with our 98 GT behind me where we have the 17x9’s in black, our 2000 V6 back there on the lift has the 18x9’s in chrome, and finally our 2000 GT behind me on the Dynojet is sporting the 17x9’s in Anthracite. If you’re interested in picking up a new set of tires with your cobra style wheels then you might want to check out one of our pre-built tire and wheel combinations, here we pair your new wheels up with some of the top tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing, even if you’re lowered a little bit. In addition, you also get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, and free mounting and balancing. Finally, all of our AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a lifetime structural warranty, as well as a 1 year warranty on all finishes. When it comes time to install your new wheels, you’ll just want to make sure you have a floor jack and some basic hand tools. First you’ll want to make sure the car is on level ground and then crack the lugs loose before getting the car in the air, once you’ve done that go ahead and jack the car up and swap the wheels. It’s that easy, doing all this should take you no more than an hour from start to finish. So if you’re looking for a new set of wheels for your 94-04 Mustang and you’re a big fan of the modern split 7 spoke design, then be sure to check out these 10th anniversary cobra style wheels right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Very Nice rims
My wife originally picked these out but when I saw my 94 convertible with these new rims and tires on I loved them. They look great, finish is perfect and I really like the fact that no one else in my area has these rims. I even like washing them because they look even better when there clean.Helpful (10)

I have had the Cobra R Deep dish wheels in the past and loved them on my old 02 GT, however on my 01 cobra I wanted something different. I really like the look of the 10th Anniversary Wheels. I went with Anthracite and 17x9 in the front and 17x10.5 in the back with 315 tires. They look great, although the 17x10.5's with 315 Mickey Thompson tires do rub on the IRS bolt while the suspension is unloaded they do not rub while suspension is loaded. You will need the rounded bolts with the 10.5 in rims and 315s if you have IRS. Wish my SVT center caps fit but all in all the Wheels look great. Love the look of the 10.5 in the back they are a bit concave.Helpful (11)

Excellent W/Nitto 555s
Great quality for an inexpensive 17x9 upgrade. The AM mounted and balanced kit with the Nitto NT555s is great and came perfectly balanced with hidden adhesive weights. This dark silver color is a very nice subtle upgrade on a silver car. They are somewhat heavier than stock alloy 17x8 wheels, but not a big deal. These clear both the stock GT brakes and the upgraded 13" Cobra front brakes perfectly (I've run both with these wheels).Helpful (11)
can I use my original lug nuts??? I have a 10th anniversary cobra convertible.
That is indeed correct, stock lug nuts certainly work and fit with the 10th Anniversary Cobra Style wheels.
can i put these on my 1992 5.0 with the five lug conversion.
Hi, We can not guarantee fitment because of the backspacing and offset we recommend only using one of our pre-made wheel and tire kits for 5 Lug swapped Mustangs to assure a perfect fitment.
What's the diameter of the center bore of these wheels? Trying to figure out if they will fit my 84 SVO thanks
The center bore of a 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Anthracite Wheel is 70.3mm.
Is the 10th Anniversary wheel the same shade as the same factory wheel,I want to put wider on the rear but will there be a difference in color?
Unfortunately Anthracite is virtually impossible to match. Every single time a new batch of an anthracite is made it will be a slightly different shade, it just comes with the territory of that kind of finish. So unfortunately even buying more than one 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Anthracite Wheel - 17x9 (94-04 All) a few weeks apart could mean a different looking finish.
Will the SVT center caps fit on the staggered 10th anny cobra style anthracite wheels?
The wheels in the Staggered 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Anthracite Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 (99-04 All) will not fit the SVT center caps that we sell. The wheels in this kit are AM wheels, and only AM center caps can fit AM wheels. In the same token, only Ford center caps can fit Ford wheels. The SVT center cap is a Ford center cap, therefor they will not fit our wheels.
For your 2000, you can absolutely run these 17x9 wheels in all 4 corners with 275/40-17 tires. That is the best fitting tire for your gen Mustang and this wheel size. Hope this helps!
Neither the 17x9 fronts nor the 17x10.5 rear wheels are deep dish but they both have a highly polished lip.
As long as the wheel studs are long enough on the spacers, and the bolt pattern is correct, the wheel spacers will work with the wheel. The 17x9's with a one inch spacer on the front may cause some rubbing issues with the fender, depending on the ride height of the car.
Simple installation for anyone.
