- 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

Color not even close
I am aware it says the color will not match the factory wheels but the color is not even close! It’s almost a blue gray not a anthracite. Finish also has flaws it in. For the price they are not a bad wheel but after paying to have them refinished it is not cost effective.Helpful (0)

What you'll need!
Wanted a stagger for my 03 Cobra - here is what I did to get these looking correct: Custom Paint ($200) - shop mixed custom paint to match stock front rims. Center Caps ($5) - painted black to match original fronts. IRS Bolts ($16) - a must! These are really close to the IRS subframe. No contact yet......Helpful (3)

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)

Look great. Cant wait to install. Fast shipping!!!Helpful (9)
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 you fit a 275/40/17 on a 17x10.5 ?
The tires would be slightly stretched and my not offer a proper seal on the bead of the wheel and tire.
Can you fit spacers on these wheels without having to cut your studs?
You can fit spacers with these wheels without having to cut the studs. However, it does depend on the size spacers you are looking to use with the wheels.
Can you fit spacers on these wheels without haning to cut your studs?
Wheel spacers will work on these wheels without needing to cut your studs yes.
Can these fit on a 2005 Mustang GT?
The 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Anthracite Wheel is not compatible with 2005 and newer Mustangs.
Hello! It's hard to say an exact number, since every car reacts slightly different to suspension modifications, however if you wanted to avoid any clearance issues or chances of rubbing, I wouldn't lower the car more than an inch.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Anthracite Wheel will color match the factory wheels.
Hello! Anthracite finishes can vary slightly in shade, especially if the finish is applied in different batches. However, if bought together there should be no noticeable variations in the finish.
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.
The center bore of a 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Anthracite Wheel is 70.3mm.
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.
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.
no stock is 17x9"
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!
Will not match your OEM color. AM 10th anniversary are more bluish than stock color. will only fit solid rear axle without the low profile kit unless your running IRS then you will need the low profile bolt kit.
Simple installation for anyone.
