- 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 American Muscle 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

This wheel and tire kit delivered a more aggressive look to my S197. The tires are excellent (I had them delivered pre-filled with Nitrogen - highly recommend - the tire pressures will not drop as quickly as air-filled tires). Beautiful, clean finish to the rims. Very durable. AM did a great job with these GT500 replicas!Helpful (0)

Jakes 2010 Shelby GT500
The front wheels won’t clear the calipers. Need at least 10mm spacer to clear the brake calipers or they won’t work other than that they look absolutely beautiful.Helpful (6)

2009 GT 500
THEY DO NOT FIT 2007-2009. I had the tires mounted and put on the car they DID NOT clear the calipers. I had to use a 5mm spacer to get them to fit. AM please update your site. Wasted my whole day running around trying to find a spacer while my car was on the rack. Now that they’re on they look great but it was a bit of a hassle.Helpful (6)

Affordable, stylish wheels with a few caveats
Beautiful tires and wheel, these are a great way to get a nice rim with good rubber on your mustang. However, the hole for the lug nuts is very tight and requires a slim style socket to install. Consequently my tire iron doesn't fit with these rims and I had to get a breaker bar with socket as a consequence for my emergency kit. This also means that I've managed to completely scratch the finish when I accidentally used a non-slim style socket to get the lug nuts removed the first time I mounted the rims . Additionally, despite being mounted and balanced out of factory, I still get some wheel wobble at 55-65mph. I had a local shop balance them and the wobble remains (a wobble that doesn't exist on my winter set of tires). As a result I believe these wheels are inherently imbalanced. Final point, although minor as I got these for cosmetic and not performance reasons; these rims are VERY heavy so you're adding a lot of sprung mass compared to the stock rims and therefore your braking distances may be negatively impacted. Overall, I would purchase again due to price, but be aware you're getting what you're paying for.Helpful (7)

Perfect match to the others. They are made of aluminum and I road rashed one of mine on a curb. Quick shipping and great communication, as always. AM is great to do business with. AHelpful (9)

Build quality and finish are excellent, the fitment is great and the look is great too, looks just like a Shelby! So can't complain! I went with 20x10s in the back.Helpful (9)
Will this fit the 13 gt with brembos lowered with sr drop springs without rubbing the brembos and the top of the tire to the wheel well
This 20x8.5 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will clear your upgraded factory Brembo Brakes. The tire size will also allow for proper clearance on your 2013 Mustang with no rubbing against the fenders.
Will these fit on a 2018 GT mustang?
This kit will not fit 2018 models.
I have a 2014 V6. What do I torque them down to?
As per the owner's manual, your lug nuts should be torqued at 100 ft-lb.
I have a 14 Roush mustang with 5 spoke crome wheels, I would like to buy the gt 500 wheels, the 20 inch rim says it is recommended for 255 tires, I have 275 tires, would these rims work on my tires and would my current Roush rims be 8.5?
The 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel - 20x8.5 (05-14 All) recommendation is for 255/35-20 tires. However you can safely fit 275/35-20's on those wheels. also, the Roush 20" wheels have a width of 9.5" making the 2013 GT500 Style Gloss Black Wheel - 20x8.5 one full inch smaller in width.
factory lug nuts?? will the factory lug nuts fit with these wheels or do i have to get the smaller ones?
You'll want to get a set of 6-spline or 3/4" lugs to go with these wheels, as the stock lugs are going to be slightly too big. Please see the lug nut drop down option on the product page for compatible sets.
I have the standard black covers on my V6 and just used what came in the kit and it all works fine.
Simple installation for anyone.
