- 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.

Hello! I am trying to clarify which rim comes with this package. One picture shows the rim with the extra bolts around the parameter. Other pictures show the rim without these little bolts. I want the deep dish but do not want the ones with the decorative little bolts around the rim parameter. Thank you.
The Deep Dish Bullitt Anthracite Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will come with the wheels that do not have the bolts along the perimeter. The included wheels are linked below. https://www.americanmuscle.com/deadsku4477.html
this rim can fit in a fox body 5 lug conversion?
The Deep Dish Bullitt Anthracite Wheel is specifically designed for 94-98 Mustangs. If you have any other question feel free to call or chat in.
willthese fit on the back of a 2002 gt without any interference?
Yes, these will fit on the rear of an 02 GT no problem.
on a 95 gt staggered set up, witch tires go on the front the 265/35ZR 18 or the 235/35ZR?
Typically you go with the smaller tire up front, bigger tire in the rear.
Why won't these fit a 2002 Mustang Gt? 1994-1998 wheels always fit on my new edge
Due to offset/backspacing specs, these will not fit 99-04 models.
These wheels can run spacers yes.
Not only will your speedo be off you may also have abs or traction control lights may come on. Your rolling diameter should be relative to one another so I would recommend doing a staggered 18" set to correct the rolling diameter.
These wheels will match those that came on the 2001 Mustang Bullitt.
Hello Skeptic, So the Ford Tri-bar center caps are going to be the exact same diameter as the center caps on the wheels the only difference is that the depth of the center caps are different. The ford center cap is not as long as the ones that come with the wheels so they do not lock into place. You may be able to use an adhesive to get them to stick i.e. silicone or similar product but that would be the only way.
These do not have a big difference with the stock pony wheels. The stock pony wheels came with a +30mm offset. The front wheels of this set will be +30mm and the rears will be +24mm.
Hello, Deep dish refers to the lip on the wheel. A deep dish wheel will have a wider lip.
These wheels are cast, and we hire a private manufacturer of which we aren't disclosed the information of.
The Deep Dish Bullitt Anthracite Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will fit your 2001 Mustang GT with no problem! All of our wheel and tire kits will have no problem on lowered Mustangs as long as they are not lowered more than 2".
The Deep Dish Bullitt Anthracite Wheel - 18x10 (94-04 All) have a back spacing of 6.3" (161mm).
No your fine no need to change gears
