- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at a classic Mustang wheel design and by far our most popular wheel here at American Muscle, I’m referring to these Bullitt wheels for all 99-04 Mustangs. Bullitt wheels have long been the favorite of many Mustang owners everywhere, from their classic 60s muscle car styling, in addition to the factory built Ford Bullitt Mustang in 01, then again in 08 and 09, it’s easy to see why these wheels are so popular on Mustangs of all ages. Our Bullitt wheels are available in 17” 18” and 19” diameters, and your choice of either gloss black, anthracite silver, matte black, or a chrome finish. The wheels are also available in either staggered or non staggered fitment, now a staggered fitment means that your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts, giving you that classic muscle car appearance, and that’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me. We have our gloss black 17x9’s on the front, and our gloss black 17x10 ½ ‘s on the rear, giving us that really aggressive stance. Now this will also help your traction as well, thanks to the fact that you get to run a big beefy tire out back to help you get that power down to the ground. The wheels are also available with a very cool deep dish option, now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, as you can see the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim, giving you that really nice lip that’s sure to get you noticed. If you want to check out what some of the other finishes might look like on your ride, then you’ll want to check out our 98 GT back there on the lift that’s sporting the chrome finish, or our 2000 GT back there on our dyno jet, sporting the anthracite silver look. Now whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured that we have your back, with a 1 year warranty on our finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty on all wheels. Of course you can purchase 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. This pairs your new Bullitt wheels up with some of the top 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. You also get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, optional nitrogen fill, and as always free shipping and handling. Installing a new set of wheels is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first, then jack up the car and swap the wheels, start to finish should take you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. So if you want to evoke that classic muscle car styling on your modern day ride, then these Bullitt wheels from American Muscle will give you an aggressive look that’s sure to never go out of style.

My dissatisfaction with the Bullit anthracite is the actual color. Anthracite is or should be gray in color. These wheels look more like polished aluminum than Anthracite. I specifically wanted a gray in color Anthracite wheel.Helpful (1)

Awesome Deep Dish
These wheels look amazing on my 2002 GT. Paired with 315-35-17 Nitto Tires. My front end is lowered by about 1.5 inches so there is a nice rake in the overall stance. The wheels did not match the stock bullets so I spray painted all the wheels to match with silver Rustoleum X2. I sprayed five coats for added protection, I'm getting great comments on how nice my Mustang looks.Helpful (1)

They look sick on my stang
The lip Is perfect n color make it stand out greatHelpful (0)
What is the center bore of these wheels, in millimeters? I do not own a mustang, but am interested in purchasing these wheels for my own car, and want to make sure they will fit. I couldn't find the center bore listed in the specs.
the center of the Bullitt Wheel is a 70.3mm which will fit all 94'-04' Mustangs.
Fitment So if I get 4 of these will they all be 17x 10.5?
These will only fit properly in the rear of your Mustang so you should only purchase (2) of these. You would need to stagger this 17x10.5 wheel with either a 17x8 or 17x9 for the front.
Do these wheels look look like my factory wheels on my 02 GT. Id like to buy just the 2 rear if possible? Will my Pony center cap fit also. I also have pressure sensors in mine. Thank you kindly.
These will be a replica wheel and will be very close to the same but will have some minor differences. The stock center cap will also not work with these wheels.
Will these tires rub on a stock 2004 mustang ?
This 17x10.5" Anthracite Bullitt Wheel and 315/35-17 Sumitomo Tire Kit fits the rear of all 1999 to 2004 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models.
Do these wider rear wheels require longer wheel studs to fit appropriately or does the stock wheel stud length work fine?
The factory wheel studs will still accommodate for these wider Bullitt Wheels. No upgraded wheel studs are required in order to install this wheel.
The 17x10.5" Deep Dish Bullitt Anthracite Wheel has a 28mm offset, and will weigh in at 24.6lbs.
This specific wheel kit is designed for the 94-04 Mustang models and will not clear the performance pack 2015+ Mustang GT models equipped with the brembo brake package.
A 17x10.5 can fit anything from a 275 to a 325" size tire.
The quad shocks can be removed or flipped for added clearance for the Deep Dish Bullitt Anthracite Wheel in 17x10.5.
The best fitting tire of the Deep Dish Bullitt Anthracite Wheel in 17x10.5 would be a 315 tire. A 275 would be a bit of a stretch on a 10.5" wide wheel.
If you were looking to run a staggered setup on the Bullitt Anthracite Wheels, I would not recommend using a 245/45/R17 on the 17x9s as the tires would be too small for the width of the wheel I would recommend 255-40-17 for 1994-1998 Mustangs and 275-40-17 for 1999-2004 Mustangs.
While we have not test fitted that specific set up on a 5 lug converted 88 foxbody, we do have wheels that have been confirmed to fit as long as you've installed 1 of the 2 conversion kits we sell. Here is the link for the confirmed wheels: https://www.americanmuscle.com/87-93-mustang-wheels-rims.html#shop-by7
No, the Staggered Bullitt Anthracite Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit will not rub on anything mechanical in the wheel well, however, if the car is lowered the rear quarter panel may have to be rolled outward for proper fitment of the tire.
Simple installation for anyone.
