- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me the 1994 Cobra R style wheels, fitting all 99-04 Mustangs, available in your choice of either silver, black, chrome, and black with a polished lip. The 99 Cobra R’s were all about one thing – performance. Only 250 of these lightweight high horsepower SN95’s were built, and besides their awesome track worthy performance, included some very unique styling cues, which feature these aggressive 5 spoke wheels. These Cobra R style wheels are cast from lightweight aluminum so they’re not going to be adding any unwanted weight to your ride. As for sizing options, we’re looking at a 16, 17, and 18 inch diameter, with widths ranging from an 8” wide wheel, all the way up to the very wide 10.5” option. Because of the wide range of sizes available, you can always stick a 10 or 10.5” wheel in the rear, and an 8” wheel up front which will give you that classic muscle car staggered fitment. Besides looking great, this will also allow you to run some serious rubber in the rear, which should definitely help your traction. In addition to the staggered possibility, these Cobra R style wheels are also available with the always cool deep dish option, this sets the face of the wheel further back into the rim, resulting in a nice big lip, what’s great about this is, you can run a deep dish wheel in the back, and a non deep dish wheel in front for a more dramatic look, or you can just run deep dish all around for a more uniform look, it’s entirely up to you. As you can see our 98 GT right here is sporting a very stealthy 17” gloss black Cobra R’s and on the lift behind me our 2000 V6 is equipped with the 18” chrome version. Finally our 2000 GT back there on the Dynojet is equipped with the 16” Cobra R’s in silver. If you’re interested in picking up a new set of tires with your wheels, then you should definitely check out one of our prebuilt tire and wheel combinations. Here we pair your Cobra style 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 an inch or two. In addition, you also get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, and free mounting and balancing. Finally, don’t forget that all AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a lifetime structural warranty, and a one year warranty on all finishes. If you’ve never installed a set of wheels and tires before, don’t worry it couldn’t be easier. All you need is a floor jack, some basic hand tools, and about an hour’s time. You’ll first want to make sure the car is on level ground, and then crack the lugs loose before you get the car in the air. After that jack the car up, swap the wheels, and that’s it. So if you’re a fan of the aggressive 5 spoke wheel design that looks right at home here on the SN95 and on the New Edge Mustang, then be sure to check out these 95 Cobra R style wheels available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Sweet Wheels, great finish

95 cobra rim
loved the rims when I bought the staggered set 7 years ago and would give them a 5 star. however, when I shattered one a month ago and ordered a replacement the rims changed a bit....they no longer accept aftermarket center caps. I have the running pony ones form them at $75 a piece but the "new" style only accept american muscle caps so hence the 3 star reviewHelpful (0)

Great rims, Do you research for your application
The rims look great. Fast shipping, packaged great, and great price. I know I am not the only one running stock foxbody spindles with a 5 lug conversion but according to other official mustang enthusiast websites, these will work with a 5 lug swap, which they fix the center cap issue and fit good, but.. require a spacer and in-turn longer wheel studs, at least on the fronts as mine were rubbing. If you are running this set-up, I would recommend the 8inch rim, depending on your set up. Could maybe squeeze by on the rears with some massaging. Not a big deal but I rather not run spacers and hubcentric ones will not work. American muscle has not specified that these will fit my application, so I have nothing against them except an awesome product. Hopefully the finish will last.Helpful (1)

Awesome with the crystal white
Go really good with the crystal white cobra. Love them!!Helpful (3)
Are these wheels matte or polished? Is I can get them matte ill buy.
The finish on this specific set of black wheels is more of a gloss black than matte black.
Would 68mm center caps fit these wheels?
These wheels would accept 2.5 in (63.5mm) center caps, 68mm center caps will not fit properly.
What is the back spacing on these wheels
The back spacing for the 17x9 1995 Cobra R Style Black Wheel is 5.94" (151mm).
What is the center cap diameter?
The center cap diameter on the 1995 Cobra R Style Black Wheel is a 2.5 inch.
What these wheels made of? Aluminum or what exactly?
The 1995 Cobra R Style Black Wheel is made of Aluminum.
The 1995 Cobra R Style Black Wheel weighs approximately 24.8 pounds.
These will not fit an S550 since a different offset/ backspacing would be required. Also, the S550 has a slightly different stud size and brake size is a factor as well.
These do include center caps. Stock center caps will not fit.
You will not need spacers with that setup.
You may need to flip/remove the quad shock to allow the rear tire to work.
We usually recommend the 6 spline lug nuts, however, these acorn lugs will be a bit thicker than the 6 spline lugs.
This will fit models with 1998 Cobra brake upgrades, as they also fit stock 1998 Cobras.
These wheels would accept 2.5 in (63.5mm) center caps, the 60mm would be too small and would not fit properly.
The Staggered 1995 Cobra R Style Black Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit are no longer available in deep dish. At this time, deep dish versions of these wheels are only available in 18" Chrome offerings.
Simple installation for anyone.
