- 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 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.

Great wheels.. My Mustang looks so nice with them.. I highly recommend those wheels.. Since I bought my Mustang, American Muscle has been provide me very good items....Helpful (8)
will these work with 255/40 r18 ?? yes
Yes, these will work with that size tire.
Do you know the size of the centre caps?
This wheel accepts a large 2.5" center cap.
Is 'normal', non-deep dish Bullit Black Wheel the same wheel as this expect deep dish? I wondering because i want them combined this on back and non-deep dish on the frot. Will colors and everything match?
Correct, the same wheel just not deep dish.
Can I use factory lug nuts, 17x8 bullits, with the 18x9 and 18x10 deep dish wheels?
The factory lug nuts can be used with these wheels yes.
How deep is the silver part to the black in inches?
The lips measure 2.5" on this 18x9 Deep Dish Bullitt wheel.
This Bullitt Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will fit on most 99-04 Mustangs without rubbing unless the vehicle is lowered 2 or more inches from factory ride height. No spacers would be required.
The Deep Dish Bullitt Wheels in 18x9 will have a +30mm Offset.
These will fit on a 2005 model Mustang.
The weight per wheel are as follows: The 18x9 will weigh 26.84 pounds. The 18x10 will weigh 8.77 pounds. These numbers are without the tires mounted.
According to our Tire Size Calculator found at this link (www.americanmuscle.com/tire-size-calculator.html), the Bullitt Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9 (99-04) will have 809 revs per mile.
it'll fit but darn! more of a rear tire than front
You can definitely use the 245/40-18 tires with the 18x9 wheels if you don't wish to go wider than the stock tire sizing and you won't have any fitment issues. Hope this helps!
The 245/40R18 will indeed fit on the 18x9 Deep Dish Bullitt Black Wheel.
Sure can - you can drop your Mustang up to a 2" drop without any clearance or rubbing issues! Hope this helps!
I have the same wheels except they are chrome on a 2013 gt and I have no clearance issues using a thick walled impact socket.
Simple installation for anyone.
