Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at the classic mustang wheel design and by far our most popular wheel here at AmericanMuscle, Im referring to these Bullitt wheels for all 2005 and up model mustangs in either chrome, matte black, anthracite silver or gloss black. Bullitt wheels have long been the favorite of many Mustang owners out there, from the classic 60s roots to the factory built for Bullitt mustangs in 2001 and then again in 08 and 09, it's easy to see why these wheels look so good on Mustangs of all ages. Wheels are available in 17, 18, 19, and 20 inch diameters and are offered in both staggered and non-staggered fitments. They are also offered with a very cool deep dish option that refers to the lip around the wheel itself, as you can see the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim resulting in a nice thick lip which looks very tough. As I mentioned before these wheels are available in both staggered and non-staggered fitments. Now, staggered fitment means your rear wheels and tires are going to be wider than your fronts, that’s exactly what we’ve done with our 06 GT here, we have the 9s up front with the 10s our back resulting in that classic muscle car stance. Now this is also better for your traction and handling as well thanks to the fact that you are able to run a wider rear tire so you can help get that power down to the ground. If you’re not a fan of staggered fitment then you might want to check out our non-staggered or standard fitment like we have installed on our 07 GT back there on the lift, we have the matte black standard 17x9s on all four corners and as you can see it looks really sharp. Or say you really want to change up the look of your ride and you live and die by the saying bigger is always better, well if that sounds like you then you will definitely want to check out our 20x8 1/2s on our 2011 GT back there on our dyno jet whichever finish you end up going with you can rest assure that every wheel is covered by our 1 year finish warranty and a lifetime structural guarantee. You can get these wheels by themselves or in one of our pre-built tire and wheel combos which pair your new Bullitt wheels up with some of better performing tires on the market today in sizes that are guaranteed to fit without rubbing even if you are lowered an inch or two, you also get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, optional nitro fill and free shipping and handling. Of course with you 2007 and up guys you’ll want to remember your TPMS sensor when ordering your new wheels. You don’t want your new wheels to be held on by some rusty looking lug nuts, this will be a great time to ditch those eyesores and get a new lug nut to better fit your new Bullitt wheels and of course you want to pick up some wheel locks to protect your investment. Installing a new set of wheels and tires is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle, all you need to do is simply crack your lug nuts loose first while the car is still on the ground then jack your car up and switch the wheels, it’s just that easy. Using a basic floor jack and hand tools that should take you no more than an hour, so if you are looking to evoke that classic muscle car styling on your modern ride, these Bullitt wheels from AmericanMuscle will give you an aggressive look that is sure never to go out of style.

Easy "One Click" Shopping. We have combined our most popular wheels and tires together into an easy "one click" to buy combo kit. This combo kit features four wheels and tires that are the exact specifications for your year Mustang for a guaranteed perfect fit with no rubbing or clearance issues.

Standard Wheel and Tire Setup. Our Standard wheel and tire combo kit uses the same size wheels and tires on the front and the rear which allows you to routinely rotate your tires to equalize tread wear and maximize the life of the tires.

Black Bullitt Wheel. Show off your pony heritage with the muscular good looks of the iconic Bullitt rim. They are completed in an black clear coated finish to protect against the hazards of road chips & pitting and featured a machined lip for a high-shine accent.

235/55-17 Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III. Sumitomo's HTR Z III series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressive design delivers extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, on and off the track. The HTR ZIII's five rib asymmetric tread design pattern merges cornering with straight line stability. Siped tie-bars reinforce block rigidity for control and enhance wet traction.

Free Nitrogen Fill. AmericanMuscle is proud to bring you the option to fill your tires with pure nitrogen for FREE when we mount & balance your wheel and tire order. Filling your high performance tires with nitrogen can result in longer tire life and improved fuel economy. Nitrogen can also better regulate tire pressure changes that occur with the change in temperatures throughout the year, so your Stang will be ready to roll no matter what season it is!

Application. This 17x8 Black Bullitt Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit fits the 2005 to 2014 V6, GT and Bullitt Mustangs. It does not fit the Shelby GT500, because of the larger factory brakes.

Road Hazard Protection. AmericanMuscle is proud to offer an optional Road Hazard Tire Protection program to our customers who purchase a Wheel and Tire Package from us. With this program, you will receive a 3-Year/36 Month protection plan for changing of flat tires and flat tire repair.

36 Months of Protection. The Road Hazard Protection Program is good for 3-Years (36 Months) from the purchase date printed on the program certificate or until any part of the tire tread that comes in contact with the road has a tread depth of 2/32” or less, whichever comes first.

Flat Tire Changing Assistance. Enrolled customers are eligible for reimbursement of up to $75 for roadside flat changing assistance provided by a licensed service provider. This is limited to the roadside installation of the customer’s own usable spare tire. Customer must have a spare tire. The customer would pay the service provider for flat tire changing and then be reimbursed.

Flat Tire Repair. Enrolled customers are eligible for Flat Tire Repair up to $20 per tire. This repair would include labor and patch. Reimbursement is limited to two flat tire repair claims during the coverage terms of 3-Years/36 months. The customer would pay the service provider for flat tire repair and then be reimbursed.

      Will my stock tires fit this wheel? I was thinking about getting these wheels for my 2012 v6 stang in black. Problem is, i dont have a whole lot of money as i am in college right now. Will these rims fit the stock tires on 2012 v6 mustang? The tire size is P225/60R17 the recommended size is 235/55R17 but does anyone know if they will fit?

      • Yes, your stock tires will fit. My car only had 1500 miles on it with Michelin tires and didn't want to change them. But you will have to purchase new valve stem and air pressure sensors for the new wheels. Ed H

      • Center caps are included.

      My question is; if regular air inflation is chosen, do you balance the wheels? If you don't, I have to run around town with the wheels in the trunk to find somebody to balance them. It doesn't really make sense.

      • We will mount and balancethe wheels no matter what type of air you chose to fill the tires with yes.

      hello I would like to get these for my 2007 mustang v6 however i really don't want to have to pay for the TPS as i would like to try and eliminate those... I was wondering if i could just get them without the sensors and if i could would there be any problem? as i know when the sensors are bad you cant put air in the tire?

      • If ordered without TPMS, The Bullitt Black Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit will be delivered with standard valve stems, so you will still be able to put air in your tires, however your car will light the TPMS light in your instrument cluster, and will display a "TPMS Fault" message in the message center, if your Mustang is equipped with a message center. A bad TPMS sensor will still allow air to be put into the tire, as the air will enter the wheel before the sensor. Additionally, you can use the OEM sensor with the SR Performance TPMS Sensor Mounting Band and Bracket kit linked below. Two band kits would be required for the vehicle. https://www.americanmuscle.com/universal-tpms-bands.html

Also other than the Gloss Black wheel with the machined lip do you have a chrome look finish that will not rust. Also I have a set of center caps with the pony and tri stripe logo that I would like to continue using if i change the wheels they are 3 and half inch will these work with your wheels.Last is the off set the same as the OEM wheels.

          Absolutely stunning!

          My motto: Simple is Elegant. The wheels are superb, and my first ride convinced me the Sumitomo tires were a great choice. The ride is ultra smooth and capable. Mind you, I have yet to take a run on the freeway: but I would anticipate great road hugging performance! Thank you, American Muscle!!

          Nice wheels and tires for the money

          Look great,except now my old rusty brakes stand out like a sore thumb,since they're no longer covered by the stock wheels. Very impressed with the black finish.Looks like powder coat,so it should hold up well over time.The AM logo center caps look sweet too. I also got the black lug nuts,which I think really add a lot to the look. All the driving I've done with them so far has been in the rain,and they did just fine. Very satisfied with this purchase,as I have been with every purchase from AM

          Black Bullitt

          That's seriously the name my car should go by now with how slick it looks. My car looks so much cleaner now compared to the stock wheels. The chrome lip is such an awesome accent. I was going back and forth on whether or not to get these wheels for a while but I finally decided to grab them. $93 a wheel is a true bargain. I ordered them and within 3 days, they were delivered. AM always has such fantastic service.
