- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m excited to be bringing you our AmericanMuscle 2013 GT500 style wheels, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs, available in your choice of either charcoal, or gloss black. Ok so we know the 2013 GT500 is pretty much the holy grail of far as Mustangs are concerned, I mean over 600+ horsepower, 200mph top speed, and that menacing front end, let’s just say there’s a lot to love. Once area that instantly grabbed the attention of a lot of Mustang fans was the wheels, the new for 2013 mesh design was a big hit with a lot of people, and so the demand for an affordable supercar style wheel was born. Our answer, the 2013 GT500 style wheels available in gloss black, or charcoal. These lightweight aluminum wheels feature the same 16 spoke mesh design that helped the 2013 GT500 achieve its unique aggressive look. As you can see our wheels do feature a little bit of dish or concave, flaring out from the lugholes to that flangelesss style lip, to give the wheels themselves a little more depth and character. As for the sizing, the GT500 style wheels are offered in either an 18, or 19” diameter, and in widths ranging from 8 to 10 inches. You all know the deal by now, stick a wider tire and wheel in the rear, and you’ll have the staggered fitment, just like the 2013 GT500. Or on the other hand, if you want to retain the ability to properly rotate your tires in the future, then the standard fitment may be the better option, just stick the same width tire and wheel on all 4 corners, and you should be good to go. You can purchase these wheels by themselves if you like, however if you need some new rubber to go along with your new wheels, why not let us do all the work for you? We do offer a couple of different tire and wheel combinations, where we pair your new GT500’s up with some of the top brand tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your Mustang without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. On top of that you get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, and free shipping and handling. Finally, all AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a one year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. If you’ve never installed a set of tires and wheels before, don’t worry it couldn’t get any easier, all you need is some basic hand tools and a floor jack. Go ahead and crack those lugs loose first before you get the car in the air, once you’ve jacked the car out simply swap out all 4 wheels and tires and that’s it, doing all this should only take you about an hour from start to finish. Even though the 2013 GT500 wheel may be a little radical for some of the traditionalists out there, there’s no denying the modern mesh design looks great on the S197, and now your Mustang can share the same supercar styling, thanks to our GT500 style wheels available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Best wheels possible
Very Quality wheels, look amazing, feel amazing. only downside is that they are much more difficult to clean than the stock wheels but that's not really much of a drawback. Only reason I had a shop install them was because I couldn't mount the tires myself. One thing I can recommend is getting the black lug nuts to match the wheels. Overall, very worth the money.Helpful (0)

Such and aggressive look with these wheels and tires. I definitely break necks now. Although, my 2007 V6 does have problems with the wheels rubbing. The car is stock performance wise besides tires, so I don’t see the reason if they’re supposed to be a perfect fit.Helpful (1)

Going for the GT500 look
These give my Mustang a more aggressive look along with wider tires than stock.Helpful (8)
If I just get the Rims can I put them on stock tires?
Depending on the original wheel width and diameter, you may be able to use them on this 2013 GT500 Style Wheel. For the best fitment, we would recommend a 255-45-18, however, there are other options that would fit on this wheel as well.
what's the proper torque for these wheels?
Recommended torque specs are in your vehicle's owner manual and we suggest that you reference that for the most accurate information. Standard specs are usually in the 85-95 lb/ft. range.
If i purchase this kit, will it come already mounted and balanced? I am not seeing an option with the other options to mount and balance them.
Yes, if you were to order this wheel and tire kit, it would come mounted and balanced.
Will these fit 235 50 18
This wheel would not be an appropriate fit for that tire size.
Would these fit an 08 Mustang/Bullitt with the Ford Racing 4 piston Brembo brake kit?
Unfortunately these wheels will not work with models equipped with the Brembo brakes.
This wheel/tire kit is designed for the 05-14 Mustang models. Unfortunately it will not fit the S550 models.
Yes, these will fit even if you are lowered up to 2 inches.
The 18x9 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel has a Back Spacing of 6.2" (157mm) and an Offset: +1.2"(30mm).
The 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit does not include TPMS sensors, however if they are ordered at the same time, they will be mounted in the wheels during mounting and balancing.
The 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9 will have enough clearance to work on your car with out a problem.
The 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel will fit all 2005-2014 Mustangs that are not equipped with Brembo brake packages.
The widest tire you could put on would be a 275/40R18. The recommended tire size for it is 255/45R18, however.
The GT500 wheels in 18x9 are going to weigh approximately 30 pounds.
These wheels will not accept the SVT or Cobra center caps as the teeth of the caps that come with this wheel are larger than the SVT or Cobra teeth. For these wheels, you will need to match American Muscle brand center caps as the others will fall out as they will not clip into place.
The 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel - 18x9 (05-14 All) weigh approximately 30 pounds.
Simple installation for anyone.
