Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a look at our race inspired FR500 wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs. These wheels are inspired by the factory built turnkey racecar the Ford Mustang FR500. Now these cars were built for one sole purpose: to be all out track monsters using beefed up suspension, and a slightly more radical engine. Now the styling of these wheels is drawn from the more aggressive racecar appearance that differentiated these models from their road going counterparts. Our FR500 wheels are available in both 17 and 18” diameters, and your choice of either black, black chrome, anthracite silver, or chrome finish. Now you can buy 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, that pair your new FR500 wheels up with some of the better 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. Not only that you get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, free mounting and balancing, and optional nitrogen fill. Now the wheels are available in both staggered and non staggered fitment and with the always cool deep dish feature. Now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, this means that the face of the rim is set further back from the rim, resulting in a nice thick lip which looks very cool. As I mentioned before you can get the wheels in a staggered fitment which simply means your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts giving you that classic muscle car look. That’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me, got the black 18x9’s up front, and as you can see we’ve got the black 18x10’s out back, giving us that really tough stance. This will also help our traction as well, thanks to the fact that we get to run a slightly wider rear tire, helping us get that power down to the ground. To give you an idea of what some of the different finishes look like we’ve equipped our 98 GT on the lift there with a set of anthracite silver FR500’s. Next to that on our Dynojet we have our 2000 GT, sporting the very sharp chrome finish. Whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured knowing that we here at AmericanMuscle have your back with a 1 year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. When you receive your new set of wheels from AmericanMuscle you’ll find that installing them is as easy as ordering them, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first while your car is still on the ground, then jack the car up and swap the wheels. Doing all of that takes you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. If you’re a fan of racecar styling and you want your ride to be inspired by a true purpose built racecar, then you’ll definitely want to check out a set of our FR500 wheels for your Mustang.

Race-inspired, street friendly. FR500 rims always look like they're tearing up the track, even sitting in your garage. These 17x9 replicas of the classic FR500 design look like racing wheels but are priced for any use.
Stealth Black with Polished Lip. Black out your wheels for a sick stealth effect, but get the flash of a high polished lip and have it both ways. Clearcoated to protect against roadchips and pitting, you also get the benefit of never noticing brake dust.
Recommended Tire Size:
Note: Priced per wheel.
Fitment: 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998
Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive.
What is TPMS? The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS for short) is a factory installed safety feature on all 2007 and newer Ford Mustangs that alerts you when your tire pressure drops to an unsafe limit.
How do I keep my TPMS feature? Aftermarket wheels do not come with TPMS sensors. However, if you select 'Add TPMS Sensor Kit' and your specific year range from the options listed above, we'll install the TPMS Sensors in your new wheels!

Awesome setup so far!!!
I bought Bullitt wheels with Sumitomo's for my Mach 1 years ago and was thinking of doing a makeover recently. I was tossing between these or Saleen's in either black or chrome. I was kinda uncertain about black rims on a black car for me personally but I think they look amazing!!! So far the Mickey Thomson's are working great as well. The only negative for me personally is not being able to swap the triple bar/pony center caps over from my Bullitt rims.Helpful (0)

Great but be careful
The wheels look great. However, I received them damaged slightly. I also have Borla ATAK’s for exhaust and had some slight clearance issues on the passenger side with the 315’s. They fit fine, just had to make some adjustments with my exhaust. The mickey’s hook well also.Helpful (0)

I'm running Eibach Sportline springs on my 2002 GT. Will these tires create any rubbing issues up front?
The 17x9/10.5" Staggered FR500 Style Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit will fit your 2002 Mustang GT equipped with Eibach Sportline Lowering Springs.
What material is the deep dish part of the rim? Need to know for proper cleaning/polishing product.
The material is Aluminum.
How big is the center cap
Will 17x9 clear 13" rotors and 6P Brembo calipers?
Will these fit with my factory quad shocks on my 2004 mustang gt?
Yes, this kit is compatible with the factory shocks.
This FR500 Style Wheels utilizes a 70.3mm center bore.
Yes, this wheel will fit on a 1998 GT
The 17x9 wheel weighs 22 lbs while the 17x10.5 wheel weighs 24.5 lbs.
Yes, unfortunately, a 225/55/17 tire is too small to fit properly on the 17x9 wheel. The smallest tire that will fit on this wheel would be a 245/45/17.
The FR500 Style Black Wheel accepts 2.5 inch, American Muscle center caps.
Hello! The 17x9 FR500 Style Black Wheel is 22.2 lbs.
Hello! We do not have Mustang logo center caps for the FR500 wheels.
This wheel and tire kit will fit perfectly fine on a 94-98 V6 Mustang.
These wheels will not cause any clearance issues on a V6 with the stock suspension.
Unfortunately, Baer 6P Brake with 14" Rotors and not compatible with the FR500 Style Wheels. That brake kit would also require an 18" or larger diameter wheel.
Simple installation for anyone.
