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 AmericanMuscle, 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 AmericanMuscle will give you an aggressive look that’s sure to never go out of style.

Front wheels and tires
Just love them and they look great. But one thing. they weren't properly balanced and the back one weren't either. Sorry, I had to tell you about it. Other than that I am happy. And they were delivered on time. Was just like a kid on ChristmasDay.Helpful (0)

Hi Guys, Just replaced the stock wheels on my 98 Mustang with these. They really make the car pop. Aside from the good looks, they handle very well and they make the care feel a lot more stable at fast speeds. It was well worth the price tag which I thought was reasonable to begin wth.Helpful (0)

Perfect fit and finish
I put these on a 2006 Crown Victoria P71, and they look amazing. The color is more of a gunmetal gray, but they still look beautiful. I noticed that if you put the model year of your Mustang as 94-98 for this style wheel, it’s cheaper than if you were searching for wheels on a newer generation Mustang, which is odd because this is the exact same wheel as the newer ones (same length, width, offset, etc.).Helpful (1)

Factory center caps won't fit.
I'm giving it a one star because people often look at one stars and they need to be aware the factory center caps don't fit. They won't seat and stick out above the rim. This is in one of the American Muscle questions on the wheels but I did not find it in the description. It should be boldly stated. I bought larger rears from AM a few years ago and the centers fit. So I assumed the quality would be the same as my previous purchase which turned out to be a big mistake.Helpful (1)

Great looking wheels, can't wait to get them mounted!Helpful (3)
what is the PCD on this 5x114 with off set of 30?
The PCD on the 17x9 Bullitt Anthracite Wheel is 5x114.3 as it is designed specifically for the 99-04 Mustangs.
The stock 1996 cobra Center Hub Bore is 70.3 mm! What is the center bore of the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel - 17x8 (94-98 All) On one of the Q A's someone asked what the bore size was and the reply was 2.5" That would be 63.5 mm?? That means you would need hub centric rings to fit Please verify the Center Hub Bore of the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel - 17x8 (94-98 All) Thank you
We do not have the information on hand from the manufacturer of the center bore, however it is designed specifically for 94-98 Mustangs and we guarantee fitment of such. The 2.5 inches you are referencing is the size of the center cap. This will have the appropriate center bore measurement for your 96.
Can the center cap be relpace w ith ford mustang cap
These wheels do not accept the Ford center caps as the clips on the back are a different design.
What do these wheels weigh each?
This wheel weighs approximately 23 lbs.
what is the center bore size and what is the weight.
The center bore size on the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel - 17x8 (94-04 All) is 2.5" and the weight of the item is 23.8lbs.
Yes, the 17x8 can be staggered with a 17x10.5 wheel.
The 17x8" Bullitt Wheel utilizes a +30mm offset and 70.3mm center bore.
Unfortunately these wheels are not currently offered in a 19 inch.
The Anthracite Bullitt Wheels are going to be very close to the stock wheel color, but they are not going to be a precise match. Many customers have told us that they couldn't tell a difference while others have been able to see the slight variation.
A 235/45R17 tire would work best with a 17x8" Bullitt Anthracite Wheel.
The Bullitt Anthracite Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will come mount and balanced as long as you chose that option when ordering.
Typically the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel in 17x8 will fit, however we recommend measuring, as depending on the spindles used (94-95 vs 96+) offset/backspace requirements will change. Tire size will also be a factor in this. This Bullitt Anthracite Wheel will have 5.72" backspace and +30mm Offset.
A 225/50ZR17 may not be the best fitment for the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel - 17x8 (94-04 All). If you would like to see which tires would work well with that wheel, feel free to check out our tire fitment guide! http://www.americanmuscle.com/simple-buyers-guide-tires.html
There will be no clearance issues when changing from stock tires to the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x8 (94-04). The only thing you may need is a new speedometer calibration!
