- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a closer look at the 10th anniversary cobra style wheel, fitting all 94-04 Mustangs available in your choice of either Anthracite silver, black with a polished lip, or chrome. These split 7 spoke wheels were only found on the 2003 terminator cobras, which marked 10 successful years for Ford’s SVT edition. Taking a closer look at the wheels themselves you’ll notice a lightweight aluminum construction, and a design that’s unlike any other Bullitt wheel, or typical 5 spoke design. They are a flat faced wheel, meaning there’s no real lip however once you start getting into the wider sizes such as the 10.5’s the face of the wheel becomes more concave, which in my opinion looks really cool. Speaking of sizing, the 10th anniversary cobra wheels are available in 17 and 18” diameters, and 9, 10, and 10.5” widths, so you could toss the 10, or 10.5’s on the rear, and put the 9’s up front and pull off the staggered fitment if you really wanted to. As you can see we do have these wheels installed on some of the cars around the shop just to give you a better idea of how they look. Starting with our 98 GT behind me where we have the 17x9’s in black, our 2000 V6 back there on the lift has the 18x9’s in chrome, and finally our 2000 GT behind me on the Dynojet is sporting the 17x9’s in Anthracite. If you’re interested in picking up a new set of tires with your cobra style wheels then you might want to check out one of our pre-built tire and wheel combinations, here we pair your new wheels up with some of the top tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing, even if you’re lowered a little bit. In addition, you also get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, and free mounting and balancing. Finally, all of our AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a lifetime structural warranty, as well as a 1 year warranty on all finishes. When it comes time to install your new wheels, you’ll just want to make sure you have a floor jack and some basic hand tools. First you’ll want to make sure the car is on level ground and then crack the lugs loose before getting the car in the air, once you’ve done that go ahead and jack the car up and swap the wheels. It’s that easy, doing all this should take you no more than an hour from start to finish. So if you’re looking for a new set of wheels for your 94-04 Mustang and you’re a big fan of the modern split 7 spoke design, then be sure to check out these 10th anniversary cobra style wheels right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Tricky fit for a Fox

All dressed up now!
Perfect fit. Really makes the 99 stand out. My special edition 35th Anniversay GT looks like a million bucks with the new wheels and tires. I could not have made a better choice. American Muscle is the best!Helpful (7)

Perfect fit on my 2003 Cobra 10th Anniversary
Installed these on my 03 Cobra with Mickey Thompson 305/45-17 drag radials and they fit perfectly and the concave design matched my OEM front wheels better than the dished 17x10 10th Anniversary wheels I previously had. Couldn’t be more pleased with the look and fit.Helpful (5)

Great looking wheel!
Bought 2 of these for the rear of my car with some NT05Rs for the track but when I put them on the car they looked way too good. Now I'm planning on buying 2 more for the front and having these all around!Helpful (7)

Affordable, wide wheel
I actually bought this wheel to see how it looked on the rear of my Polaris Slingshot since it has a spoke pattern similar to my standard wheels. It will hopefully allow me to affordably mount a 315/35R17 tire instead of my standard 265/35R18 while maintaining the same dimensions as my standard tire. The only catch is how the 28 mm offset will look compared to the standard wheel's 45 mm offset. I would have rated it all 5s, but there was a small gash in the finish on part of the wheel. Fortunately, it's relatively hidden.Helpful (7)

Love the wheels 17x9 17x10.5 On my foxbody . The concave look is nice on the notchback. 255 and 315 tire setup to go along with wheels.Helpful (8)
Will these wheels fit a 79-93 mustang with 5 lug conversion
The Staggered 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Black Wheel & NITTO Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 (94-98 All) will fit with the 5 lug conversion on a fox body. However you will most likely need to do custom modifications in order for the wheels to have enough clearance.
I have a 2015 SRT 392...I know from friends that run them the 17x9 fit...will the 10.5’s
I know 315/35R17 is the go-to tire for 10.5" wide rims. However, I did not want to have that wide of a tire on the back. Are there any other sizes of tire I can put on these?
Will my SVT center caps for my 2003 fit in the center of these wheels?
Unfortunately the factory center caps will not work with our wheels as they are a different size.
What is the offset and weight of each wheel?
The 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Black Wheel has a weight of 23.1 and a weight of +28mm (1.10")
I'm sorry to hear about your original wheels. The 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Black Wheel - 17x10.5 is the closest we have to the OEM wheels.
Hello! We do not currently have plans to produce the 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Black Wheel in an 18x10.5
These wheels are gloss black.
We place the wheel weights on the inside of the barrel.
You should not notice any problems with installing the 1" spacers along with the 10th Anniversary Cobra Style Black Wheel - 17x9 (94-04 All). Just keep in mind this will stick out further than your factory wheels to give your Mustang a nice wide stance.
Unfortunately they will not. The Factory OEM center caps will only work with factory OEM wheels.
Simple installation for anyone.
