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 AmericanMuscle, 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 AmericanMuscle will give you an aggressive look that’s sure to never go out of style.

01 GT BACK TO ORGINAL WHEEL AND TIRE SIZE
PROS: LOOKS GREAT ON MY CAR. RIDE AND HANDLING MUCH BETTER THAN THE 9's I HAD ON IT. WHEEL BALANCE COULD'NT BE BETTER. LOVE THE TIRES. GREAT TREAD PATTERN, QUITE, AND A GOOD ROAD GRABBER, WET OR DRY. CONS: DID NOT COME WITH THE BLACK AND CHROME CENTERS AS PICTURED. WHEN CONTACTED, A/M PROMPTLY SENT ME THE CENTERS IN THE PICTURE. NO2 FILL WAS NOT EQUAL ON THE SET. ONE WAS AT 14PSI, ONE AT 32 PSI, ONE AT 33PSI AND ONE AT 46PSI. I ADJUSTED ALL TO 34PSI WHICH GIVES ME MY PREFERED RIDE.Helpful (10)

I live in the Seattle area where we get a lot of rain. How do the Sumitomo tires perform in wet conditions ?
Hello! The Sumitomo's do have pretty good drivability in the rain for summer tires!
How much does one of these rims by itself weigh? Also in the specs, it shows everything except for the weight. Will that be updated in the future? I plan on buying a wheel package from you guys in a couple of weeks, I'm trying to decide which ones.
Yes, we are working on getting all the Spec Tab information up on the site as soon as possible. This particular wheel weighs 20.9 lbs. Hope this helps!
Do these wheels come with center caps and lug nuts ?
Center caps are included but lug nuts are not.
What is the size in a 17 inch tire can you use on these rims? Is 225/50 or 60 too small? Thanks
A 225 will fit this wheel but you would not be able to go any smaller.
I have a v6 98 with stock tires of 205 65R15 would these tires cause any rubbing issues and would these cause the speedometer to be off by a bit?
These wheels would not fit with those tires. You need 15 inch wheels if you want to continue to use those tires.
These wheels have 5.72" backspacing.
These wheels will fit just fine on your '89. We offer these same exact wheels, designed for the stock Fox Bodies with the 4 lug setup, and the backspacing/offset is exactly the same.
The OEM center caps will not fit the Bullitt Black Wheel due to the mounting depth of the cap.
Unfortunately, this Bullitt Black Wheel is specifically for 94-04 Mustangs, however, we do offer this wheel for the 2005-2010 GT/2005-2014 V6! It is item number 28088G05, and you can find it here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/17x8-bullitt-black.html
Hey Bigman, As for the combination itself, generally people go with a 17x9 front and 17x10.5 rear for a staggered set-up. But a 17x8 and 17x10.5 work perfectly well with each other so you won't run into any issues. It will be just a more aggressive styling than your average staggered set. As for tire size for the 17x8 we would recommend a 245/45-17 tire and for the 17x10.5 we would recommend a 315/35-17!
Hello! The Bullitt Black Wheel does come with center caps.
For the nice staggered look, you can go upwards of 275/40-17's on the back for a nice staggered look.
The Ford Pony caps don't fit - smaller
Not if you buy the recommended tire size with it.
Yes, the locking lug nuts come with a special socket, or key to fit them. They act as both a lug and a lock instead of having to purchase separate lugs and locks.
Simple installation for anyone.
