I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and today I have with me these AmericanMuscle Saleen style wheels for all 2005 and newer Mustangs. 2005 marked a year full of change for the Mustang and Saleen, Ford went totally retro with the style of their Mustang, but Saleen decided to go in a different direction with their S281’s, introducing more modern styling into the equation, including the addition of these very cool, concave 7 spoke wheels. Taking a closer look at these Saleen style wheels you’ll see we have them available in 3 different finish options, we have the triple dipper chrome option shown here, a silver option, and a very stealthy gloss black option. All these wheels are constructed from durable lightweight aluminum and feature a lifetime structural warranty, and also a 1 year warranty on all finishes as well. As for the sizing the Saleens are offered in both 18 and 20” diameters, and in both staggered and non staggered fitment. We went with the 20” staggered fitment here on our 2013, which will give us that old school muscle car look but with a modern twist. The 2011 and the 2006 GT behind me are sporting the standard fitment, which simply means you have the same width wheels and tires on all 4 corners. I know what you’re thinking, 20s might be a little big for some Mustangs but as you can see on our 2013 behind me, they look right at home. When purchasing a set of Saleen style wheels, you do have the option to get the wheels just by themselves, or you can save yourself a few steps and take advantage of one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations. Here we pair your new Saleens up with some of the top performing tires on the market today. We then mount, balance, and ship them to your front door all for free. Don’t forget to take care of your TPMS sensor for all you 2007 and up guys. If you never installed a new set of wheels and tires before, don’t worry, it couldn’t be easier, all you need is some basic hand tools and a floor jack. You’ll first want to make sure your car is on level ground, then go ahead and crack the lugs loose first before you jack your car up into the air. Once you’ve jacked your car up simply swap the wheels, and you’re done, it shouldn’t take you any more than an hour, and that’s being generous. So if you’re a big fan of what Saleen did to the S197 Mustangs, in terms of exterior styling, then a set of these concave 7 spoke wheels from AmericanMuscle.com would definitely be worth checking out.
Note: Priced per wheel.

Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order for an additional fee. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive. We even offer Free Nitrogen tire fill.
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 free of charge!

do 20's change the way the car rides? especially on a 99GT
When using a 20 inch wheel, such as this S197 Saleen Style Black Wheel, the tire sidewall height will typically decrease to compensate for the change in wheel diameter, which can cause a rough ride. So it is not the wheel that causes the change it ride, but it is actually the change in tire dimensions.
