Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at our S281 Saleen style wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs. These aggressive 5 spoke wheels are inspired from the early SN95 Saleens, now these cars really raised the bar for all Mustangs in terms of both styling and performance. A big part of that bold, in your face styling can be attributed to these 5 spoke wheels. Our lightweight aluminum Saleen style wheels are available in an 18” diameter in your choice of either chrome, black chrome, gloss black, or matte black. Now all these finishes are guaranteed for one year and also feature a lifetime structural warranty as well. We all love that classic muscle car stance right? Who doesn’t? Well now your ride can share that exact same look thanks to these optional staggered fitment wheels, staggered fitment simply means that your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts, which not only looks great, but will also help you get that power down to the ground, and make for more responsive handling. If you check out our 2000 V6 right behind me you’ll see that we’re rocking the 18x9’s up front, with the staggered chrome 18x10’s in the rear, giving us that look that speaks for itself. Now if you’re not a big fan of this look and you want to keep the ability to rotate your tires frequently, these wheels are also available in a non staggered, or standard fitment, which simply means you have the same width wheels on all 4 corners. The best way to get an idea of how the wheels might look on your own car, is to actually see them on a car, well with that in mind check out our 2000 GT behind me on our lift, sporting the very sleek black chrome Saleens, and next to that on our Dynojet we have our 98 GT with the black 18x9’s on all 4 corners. We here at AmericanMuscle always offer free shipping and handling and free mounting and balancing with all new wheel and tire purchases, so even though you can buy these Saleen style wheels by themselves, you should definitely check out some of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, which give you a couple of different setup options that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. All you need to take your car from stock to Saleen is a floor jack, some standard hand tools, and about an hour’s time. All you need to do is simply crack the lugs loose first, jack the car up and swap the wheels, it’s that easy. The early S281 Saleens are a true work of art, from their all out supercar performance, to their aggressive racecar styling, these 5 spoke wheels from AmericanMuscle.com are a great way to pay tribute, and give your ride that same racecar styling, check them out!

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!

Can I put 245/45-17 tires on these rims? A.M. recommends 275/40-17 tires for these wheels, but when I browse around other sites, 17x9 rims usually come with a recommendation of 245/45-17. So can I put 245/45-17 tires on these rims despite A.M.'s recommendation? And is there a specific reason why the 275's are recommended over 245's? Thank you
You can absolutely use either size with the 17x9 wheel. Generally, the 17x8 wheel is recommended with the 245/45-17 tires, but they can certainly be used with the 17x9 as well. If you wanted to, you could actually stagger your 17x9 wheels with two different tire sizes to give the allusion of (2) wheel sizes. The 245/45-17 and the 275/40-17 have the same side wall height and they'd be a great match. That being said though, you can use the 245/45-17 in all four corners or the 275/40-17 tires without any clearance or rubbing issues! Hope this helps!
How much can I lower my 2000 Gt without rubbing issues?
It will honestly depend on the setup you're going for, Please give us a call at 1 (888) 318-4347 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
Will they fit a 2001 GT with out rubbing
It will depend on if the vehicle is lowered or not. We usually recommend not going more than 1 inch drop. Please note that even with this, the front tires may still rub.
Love these rims... but they probably wouldn’t be compatible with spacers would they?
The 17x9" Saleen Style Wheel can be used with wheel spacers in the rear but we do not recommend anything larger than an inch to ensure you have enough clearance.
I have the saleen 17x9 and 17x10.5 staggered set up. Would these clear a coilover set up? Worried around rubbing wheels or tires against front coilovers
Yes, these wheels are compatible with a coilover set up. However, to determine if it would clear your particular set up, we would need more information for you to better advise you. Please reach out to us via LiveChat, Email or phone and we can help!
This kit will fit your 2000 V6.
Unfortunately we do not currently offer touch up paint kits at this time. We generally recommend checking your local auto parts store.
Yes, we guarantee that all of our pre-made wheel and tire kits will fit as long as your Mustang is lowered 2" or less.
The Saleen Style Black Wheel is a 17" wheel, and will require a 17" tire. We recommend a 275/40R17 for your year, and the smallest tire we recommend is a 245/45R17.
The Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 will fit a 2000 Saleen Mustang.
We have not confirmed the fitment of these Saleen Style Black Wheels on a five lug conversion kit, however, I have attached a link below with all of the wheels we have confirmed fitment with our 5 lug kits. https://www.americanmuscle.com/87-93-mustang-wheels-rims.html#shop-by7
We would not recommend using this specific kit on a 2008 GT as the tire sizes would not close enough in similar diameter to what the S197s are. A better fitting kit with properly sized tires would be the 18 inch kit, linked below.

No, the ford steering rack limiters are not required with this wheel and tire kit.
The center bore size of this saleen wheel is 2.5" or 2 1/2".

These are great addition to the car. I love the new look and gives the old gal a nice aggressive look. Front does rub on something with a hard right turn. Install was simple. Recommend an extra deep socket with an extension. Struggled with torque wrench with just a regular deep socket but managed to get them installed. One downside was that they did have a couple of dings in the paint. Need to contact AM to see what they will do. Highly recommend theseHelpful (0)

Purchased the 17" staggered wheels and tires for my son's 2000 mustang. Wasn't sure initially about the black look but I must say it looks very good. His car is sunburst gold and already had black accents. I was also concerned about the width of the rear wheels but they also look very good. I can't speak to the longevity of the product but my initially feeling is they well worth the price paid. You would be hard pressed to find wheels and tires that look this good for what I paid for them. Only negative is that they were supposed to arrive balanced and mounted. Two did not. I had to spend an extra $40 bucks to mount and balance the rear wheels and tires. Even so, still a bargain.Helpful (3)
