- 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 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.

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)

Nice rims at a good price
Shipped fast and look great....I honestly like the fact that the anthracite coloring is more on the cool side, so they’re more blue/silver looking than the oem, which look more grey.Helpful (1)

Number 1 with a Bullitt!
These wheels are a perfect complement to the muscular look of my 2000 GT Convertible. They look great, retro without looking cheesy and have garnered me seven compliments in the four days that I have had them on the car.Helpful (0)

Classic looks at a great price
Very pleased with my 17X9 anthracite bullitts from American Muscle. Top notch fit and finish. Wrapped in a set of Nitto NT555 Extremes in 275/40/17 on all four corners. No rubbing on my 98 Chrome Yellow GT.Helpful (6)
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.
Will the staggering wheels work with Mickey Thompson 245/45/17s pro comps
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.
will this set up fit my 88 fox i already have the five lug conversion and plan on rolling the fenders
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
I have a 2001bullitt, will the wider rims rub on the brake caliper, or Anything else.?
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.
Do I need to roll fenders with the 17x 10.5 rear tire? Stock height
You will encounter rubbing with this set up on a 95.
We do ship all of our tires and wheels at a higher PSI as they normally drop while shipping. For the Staggered Bullitt Anthracite Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit, we would have the pressure around 32-35psi.
You will want to use the same tire pressure as your stock tires for these. This will be around 32-35 psi.
We cannot guarantee fitment for the Bullitt Anthracite Wheel as they were not intended for a Fox body mustang (79-93), however, with the 5 lug conversion in the front and the rear the wheels will mount up to the car. The best recommendation would be to view the measurements for backspacing, offset, and general sizing to ensure a good fitment on that year car before purchase.
