- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at a classic Mustang wheel design and by far our most popular wheel here at American Muscle, I’m referring to these Bullitt wheels for all 99-04 Mustangs. Bullitt wheels have long been the favorite of many Mustang owners everywhere, from their classic 60s muscle car styling, in addition to the factory built Ford Bullitt Mustang in 01, then again in 08 and 09, it’s easy to see why these wheels are so popular on Mustangs of all ages. Our Bullitt wheels are available in 17” 18” and 19” diameters, and your choice of either gloss black, anthracite silver, matte black, or a chrome finish. The wheels are also available in either staggered or non staggered fitment, now a staggered fitment means that your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts, giving you that classic muscle car appearance, and that’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me. We have our gloss black 17x9’s on the front, and our gloss black 17x10 ½ ‘s on the rear, giving us that really aggressive stance. Now this will also help your traction as well, thanks to the fact that you get to run a big beefy tire out back to help you get that power down to the ground. The wheels are also available with a very cool deep dish option, now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, as you can see the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim, giving you that really nice lip that’s sure to get you noticed. If you want to check out what some of the other finishes might look like on your ride, then you’ll want to check out our 98 GT back there on the lift that’s sporting the chrome finish, or our 2000 GT back there on our dyno jet, sporting the anthracite silver look. Now whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured that we have your back, with a 1 year warranty on our finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty on all wheels. Of course you can purchase these wheels individually if you like, however the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations. This pairs your new Bullitt wheels up with some of the top performing 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. You also get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, optional nitrogen fill, and as always free shipping and handling. Installing a new set of wheels is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first, then jack up the car and swap the wheels, start to finish should take you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. So if you want to evoke that classic muscle car styling on your modern day ride, then these Bullitt wheels from American Muscle will give you an aggressive look that’s sure to never go out of style.

Love them so far,
I bought these to replace my old faded AR105m and let me say they are nice. Only thing I didn’t like was the black Center cap, but for the price I guess it’s not too bad. But all I did was put my old center caps on the new rims. I love them won’t be the last product I purchase on American muscle.Helpful (0)

Perfect update versus the stock rims I had on there. I’m glad I went with the chrome and black vs the all black. I feel the chrome makes the wheels really pop.Helpful (0)
I have a 1997 Mustang Cobra, lowered with your eibach springs, can I use 275/40zr17 tires on the front?
Yes, We do gaurentee fitment up to a 2" drop. This will be nice and snug but should not rub at all.
Will a 235/55 17 tire fit on a 9in Bullitt Rim and would it fit on a 2004 Mustang V6?
A 235/55R17 tire will not properly/safely seat on a 17x9" wheel.
Why won’t this fit 05-09 mustangs, I have a 2008 v6 mustang and have 17x8 on rear and front but I want a bigger back wheel set while staying in 17”. Why wouldn’t these work on my car and what should I do instead?
These whee;s will rub on your year Mustang. Unfortunately wheels in this size have clearance issues with your Mustang.
I would like to know if the Mickey Thompson Staggered Bullitt Gloss Black Wheel Tire Kit is deep dish?
From my understanding, the 17x10.5 for the rear will be deep dish wheels, but the 17x9 will not be.
Are the Mickey Thompson tires directional?
Hello! Yes Mickey Thompson street comp tires are directional!
These tires will not affect your speedometer calibration.
Yep! You can upgrade to this package from stock without having any rubbing or clearance issues. The 17x10.5 rear wheels in this package come with 315/35-17 tires that will give your Mustang a mean, staggered stance and improved handling!
Absolutely! You can use those two tire sizes (this wheel/tire package) on a Mustang dropped up to 2" so you will be totally fine with your 1.5" drop! No rubbing issues, just bolt on and enjoy!
There will not be clearance issues up to 2" of lowering.
Yes, these are specifically designed for the rear of your Mustang in fact.
These cannot be mounted on the front, they can only be mounted on the rear.
They are painted, and then clear coated.
This wheel would be too wide to accommodate a 235/55-17 tire.
These will weigh 28.89 lbs each.
Simple installation for anyone.
