- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone, I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a look at our AmericanMuscle GT500 Style Wheels for your 2005 and up Mustang. GT500’s have always been one of the baddest Mustangs on the block and now your ride can enjoy the stylings of the 2010 GT500, thanks to these split 5-spoke wheels. The wheels are available with 3 different finishes, including a black painted finish, a triple dipped chrome finish, or a black machined finish. As for the sizes, the wheels are available in either an 18” diameter with an 8 inch front and 9 inch rear, or a 19” diameter with an 8.5 inch front and a 10 inch rear. Staggered fitment is cool for a couple of different reasons. First off, it looks awesome. A wider rear wheel not only improves your stance, but also helps get that power down to the ground thanks to the wider rear tire and contact patch. Not only that, it also makes for more responsive handling as well, thanks to the narrow front tire. It’s a win-win. Now, you can purchase these wheels without tires if you want; however, the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our wheel and tire combos that pair your new GT500 style wheels up with some of the better performing tires on the market today in sizes that are guaranteed to fit without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. Not only that, you also get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, free mounting and balancing, and optional nitrogen fill. Remember, you 2007 and up folks have to keep in mind your vehicles are equipped with a TPMS sensor. This means a tire pressure monitoring system that needs to be addressed when ordering new wheels. These aluminum AM wheels are extremely durable, but if you ever encounter any problems, every rim features a lifetime structural warranty, as well as a one year warranty on finish, you can’t beat that. There are very few mods on the market today that can change the attitude of any ride like a new set of shoes. These AmericanMuscle wheels are sure to offer the modern aggressive stylings that look great on any Mustang.

Eye catching look
Wheel and tire combination with TPMS was an excellent addition to the Mustang. The wheels and tires were inflated, balanced and ready to go. The TPMS was easy to sync to the car with the included instructions. Could not be more pleased with the ease of the upgrade and the staggered stance give a more aggressive look to the car. Several compliments received already.Helpful (0)

Perfect fit for 14 track package GTs
In short this rim and tire combo is the best deal for the performance I have seen anywhere. I have a 2014 mustang GT performance package (pp). The difficult part about the (PP) is that the brembo breaks on the front are so large, many aftermarket rims won't fit on the front. The second tricky part is, even with the stock 255 tires, with the 373 gears I have spun in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and cherped the tires in 4th on the drag strip. These rims and tires bolt right on the car with no issues. The 275s on the back are the perfect size for all 2014 (pp) Mustangs. After I installed theses. I can floor my car in 2nd on the street, and have almost no slip. I can take corners much harder without fear of spinning out. Many times people have asked how much I paid for my rims and tires and have been shocked I picked them up delivered to my door ready to be installed for around 1,300$ In my opinion, this is one of the best values, and most needed upgrades for the 14 gt (pp) mustangs.Helpful (13)

I went with the 19" Sumitomo staggered set up and could not be happier. The thumbs up and neck turns I get are a bonus too. I am lowered 1.5" and the 19" fills the gap just right. The wheels even though they look great in the Pics look even better in person. The staggered stance is flat out MEAN and handles like a cat stuck to a rug. Killer set up. Thanks AM for the great price and free shipping! You guys Rock!Helpful (13)

Best mod yet
Im really happy with my rims and tires. They give the car a whole new look. They fit perfectly even though my car had a 1.5" drop. The sync was easy and the install was flawless. The only problem was one of the lug nuts that I ordered would not go on . I called AM and they sent out a whole new set. Im glad I didnt go with the matte finish because the gloss looks great !!Helpful (14)
If i bought these with the tpms sensors, will they come installed already??
Yes! If you decide to purchase this Staggered 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit with TPMS sensors, we will install them along with the free mounting and balancing.
Will these wheels clear the factory Brembo brakes on a 2011 GT?
This wheel and tire kit will clear the factory Brembo brakes on the 2011 GT without any issues.
Offset of these wheels?
This 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheel has an offset of +48mm
I have the larger Brembo package on my 2013 GT, will there be any issue with fitment of these rims with the upgraded Brembo's?
Since these have clearance with the GT500 wheels that come equipped with Brembo's these will work with the upgraded big brake kit.
Hello will these wheels clear the Wilwood Superlite Front Brake Kit AM item #48300 and the Wilwood Superlite Rear Brake Kit AM item#48301. Thank you!
Hello! The Staggered 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will clear both the front and rear Wilwood kits.
Hello! The Ford Performance SVT Front Brake Upgrade Kit requires the use of Ford Racing wheels M-1007-DC199LGB, M-1007-S1895, M-1007-S1895B1, M-1007-DC199B, M-1007-SA199, M-1007-DC199LGB or equivalent for correct caliper clearance. All other styles should be test fit to ensure proper fitment.
Any non-corrosive wheel cleaner would be recommended to keep the wheels clean without damaging the finish of the paint. There are brands out there such as Chemical Guys that produce non-corrosive cleaner.
Unfortunately, the factory lug nuts have a size of 13/16" which is to large for these wheels. You will need lug nuts that are a 1/2". If you scroll up the page to "Buy Together", you will find a selection of lug nuts that will work with these wheels.
Hi, This 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will ship mounted and balanced.
The 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheel is designed to work with the 2005 to 2014 Mustangs. The bolt pattern will be the same as the 2015 and newer, but the offset and backspacing will be slightly different which could cause the wheel to sit further in than it did on your previous Mustang.
The 2010 GT500 Style Black Wheel - 19x8.5 will fit a 255/40R19 tire just fine!
You should have the TPMS installed with new wheels for both safety reasons and to keep your check engine light off. Without installing the sensors, the CEL will remain illuminated and a tuner doesn't have the capability to disable the light on your dash. Hope this helps.
Although your original P245's will "fit", I would not recommend them on this rim. A 245 tire is about 9.6 inches wide, since this rim is 10 inches wide, the sidewall would have to be stretched to fit on the rim, which will round the outside edge of the tire where it meets the road. This will cause premature tire wear and loss of integrity. I would recommend a P275/40R-19 on this wheel. If you want to maintain you factory tire size, you can purchase the 19X8.5 wheel and your stock tires will fit fine.
Unfortunately not. 19x10 wheels can only be installed on the rear of your Mustang. You would need to pair these rear wheels with 19x8.5's in the front for proper fitment.
Hello, I can only speak about my wheel/Tire, but since we're really just talking about the center cap, I'll add my .02 worth. Some people told me my stock SVT cap wouldn't work without a bit of modification. However my Stock/OEM SVT cap snapped right in. It did not fit flush but it isn't enough to even notice until you go to do regular tire inflation maint. I would say possibly 1/16 of an inch. I bought the stock SVT Chrome Cobra 17x9". I bought the Wheel Brand that they sell here on American Muscle.com You can see them on AM's Facebook page under my Facebook username SVTStangCobra ?, I believe it is.SVTStangCobra on my Laser Red Metallic SVT Mustang Cobra convertible w/black top I posted under or you can go to my Mustang Website >http://www.flickr.com/groups/mustangs65topresent/. Feel welcome to join my Group if you like. It only takes a couple minutes to do the initial sign up. Have fun, I love those wheels !
