- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out our AmericanMuscle GT500 style wheels for your 94-04 Mustang. GT500s have always been the baddest Mustangs on the block, and now your ride can enjoy the stylings of the 2010 GT500, thanks to these split 5 spoke design wheels. The wheels are available in 3 different finishes, including a black painted finish, a triple dipped chrome finish, and a black machined finish. As for the sizing, the wheels are available in 18” diameters with a 9” front and a 10” rear, or a 19” diameter with an 8 ½ “ front, and a 10” rear. Now the staggered fit is cool for a couple different reasons, first off, it looks awesome, a wider rear tire and wheel combination makes for a much more aggressive appearance, and also helps give you better traction thanks to the wider rear tire. Not only that the narrower front tire gives better handling thanks to more responsive steering. It’s a win-win. Of course you can purchase these wheels individually if you’d like but the smart move would be to take advantage of our pre built tire and wheel combos that pair your new GT500 style 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. Not only that you get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, optional nitrogen fill, and as always free shipping. These aluminum AM wheels are extremely durable, but if you should ever encounter a problem, each rim is covered by a lifetime structural warranty, as well as a one year warranty on the finish. Now your factory lug nuts will work just fine with your new wheels, however if you really want to complete the look, you might want to check out a set of matching lugs depending on what style of wheel you’re going with. For instance on our 2000 V6 here, we’ve opted for the black acorn style lug nut, to go along with our black powder coated wheel, for a really clean look. You also might want to check out some wheel locks to make sure you protect your investment as well. A new set of wheels can drastically alter the attitude and appearance of any ride, so give your 94-04 Mustang a serious attitude adjustment thanks to these GT500 style wheels.

Ordered these rims for my 95 mustang convertible and they arrived about a week later. Boxes were a little banged up but quick inspection everything appeared to be ok. A couple days later I had them installed. Unfortunately it was discovered that one of the rims had been dropped and there was a nice dent which will eventually cause the paint to chip later on. I immediately called American muscle sent photos of the damages and within a couple days I was offered a store credit or replacement rim. I opted for the replacement rim vs the hassle of having it fixed later on. Customer service was amazing and very easy to deal with. Rim is on the way and will return the damaged one. They even make the return easy by providing shipping labels etc. I get so many compliments on the new rims, makes the car look more aggressive. Thanks again American MuscleHelpful (10)

These dramatically changed the look of my stang! Wow!! My only regret is getting the staggered set. I thought it would be a noticeable difference between the 2 tire sizes, plus the center caps are different. Don't get me wrong, I am still thrilled with how the car looks and sits. I just won't be able to rotate now. I suggest getting all 4 rims the same. I get tons and tons of comments!Helpful (10)

Put these on my 04 GT and I cant believe that I left the typical bullitt rims on for so long. These wheels look fantastic, great finish on them. The only downside is they are significantly heavier then the previous rims but theyre only for looks, not drag racing. No installation issues, just make sure you have a deep thin wall socket so you dont scratch the finish up.Helpful (10)

Not as I though
I order the "staggered" set up an let me tell you, I was disappointed when I received these wheels. Tey look nice, quality looked good, and for the price, it can't be beat. So what's my problem? Well the rear wheels are more conclaves than the front so it throws the whole look off. I honestly would like my front and rear to match. Over all, if you are going to order these wheels, go for the "standard" set up instead. The concave in the back wheels are enough to make me not want these wheels any more. If there was an option to trade the rear in for the regular ones I would, but I don't think there is. Over all, I am not to happy with these.Helpful (10)

2010 GT 500 black wheel and Sumitomo tire kit
I have a black 2003 cobra and was ready for the next stage in modifications. Since I was in need of new tires I opted to bring it to the next level and purchase this wheel and tire package. Install was a breeze, with just the basic tools for tire changing in my trunk it took me 3 hours overall. Which included installing new headlights, tail lights, side marker tint, and picking the kids up from school. All I can say is wow, these wheels have transformed my cobra into a menacing street machine. I also find that the Sumitomos achieve a more comfortable ride over the Nitto 555s I had on my stock rims. Package exceeded my expectations!Helpful (8)

Ive had these babies on my car for almost a year and I still get compliments!! Recommend to anyone!Helpful (11)
Is there a ride quality difference between wide 10’s or 10.5’s and 8’s or 9’s? Or is it mainly for gripping the street and looks? Aren’t wider worse in rain? Thank you!
The ride quality difference come more from the wheel diameter than the width. You may see a small handling characteristic change with running wider or staggered setups. The wet weather performance would come down the tire tread pattern more than anything and with a wider tire you tire does have to displace more water.
I bought these rims for my 96 gt just need to buy tires but I’ve been thinking about selling the 96 buying a 00-04 gt would these still fit ?
No, these wheels are intended to fit 94-98 models only.
i noticed in the center of this it is a and m . i need one to match my other 3 can you get them with the american muscle logo?
The AM center caps can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/black-center-cap-94-16.html
will the 18x9 clear cobra R brembo calipers?
Yes, these GT500 styled wheels will clear the Cobra R Brembo calipers.
Are these deep dished because they are 18's??
These 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheels in this kit do not have step-lips and are not considered deep dish.
This 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9 (94-98 All) will fit and work perfectly on your 1995 Mustang GT. The only issue you may run into is the quad shock in the rear of the Mustang may need to be flipped or removed to fit the bigger wheels. This is not an issue and can safely be done. Removing the quad shocks will cause absolutely no change in your Mustangs ride or affect its performance.
