- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everybody Dave with AmericanMuscle.com and I am here with one of the more popular wheel styles for the 2005 and newer Mustang. I have the American Muscle Saleen style wheel. These wheels are designed to look just like the 5 star Saleen wheels seen on the cars over the years, our Saleens would definitely set you off from the pack and they’re available in an 18” diameter. You can get them in a chrome, a black, and a matte black finish. They’re available in an 18x9 and an 18x10, giving you the option to go with the old school staggered setup, or a non staggered fitment. No matter what wheel size, style or finish you decide, one thing we guarantee you is that wheel is going to look and function perfectly, and American Muscle offers you a 1 year finish and a lifetime structural warranty on all of our wheels. You can buy the wheels separate, but we offer you pre packaged tire and wheel combos, where we take your wheel and pair it up with some of the best performing tires on the market. And by sticking with a wheel and tire combo, it’s going to go ahead and take the hassle out of buying wheels and tires that fit right, and it’s going to guarantee you perfect fitment on your Mustang, even if it’s been lowered up to 2”. We’re also going to go ahead and ship these to your house for free, we’ll mount and balance them for free, and for all you customers with a 2007 and up Mustangs, don’t forget to pick up your TPMS sensors when ordering your wheels. Once the wheels and tires arrive they’re ready to install right out of the box, you’re just going to want to go ahead and crack the lug nuts loose with the car on the ground, and then secure the car, jack the car up and finish removing your lug nuts and your old wheel and tire, take the new Saleen, slide her right in place, lower it and tighten it, and you’re good to go. All in all you’re looking at about an hour to install. If the looks you’re after are that of the clean, race inspired Saleen Mustang, then you’re definitely going to want to pick up a set of the American Muscle 5 star style Saleen wheel for the 2005 and up Mustangs.

What is TPMS? The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS for short) is a factory installed safety feature on all 2007 and newer Ford Mustangs that alerts you when your tire pressure drops to an unsafe limit.
How do I keep my TPMS feature? Aftermarket wheels do not come with TPMS sensors. However, if you select 'Add TPMS Sensor Kit' and your specific year range from the options listed above, we'll install the TPMS Sensors in your new wheels!

Simple but Effective
I wanted something simple while maintaining the muscle feel of the s197 style. I also didn’t want the AMR style wheels that a lot of other Mustangs have. These look great; now I just need to lower my car!Helpful (0)

Almost 5 stars
When I received the wheel and tire kit I was impressed. There were some scuffs on the wheels but I'm sure that's on the delivery side. But what stopped me from putting 5 stars is that 2 tires were mounted wrong (inside of the tires were facing outside). So I'm having to take them to a local tire shop to put them on correctly. Other than that I'm happy with them.Helpful (11)

Awesome wheels and tires!
I love the set. They are well made and make my car look much better. They can be cleaned completely without removing them.Helpful (11)

Exactly the look I wanted
Put the 19x8 on front, 19x10 on the back of my 2008 GT vert. They look great, very tough looking, especially with the tires staggered.Helpful (11)

What a difference!! I love this setup!!
I purchased this combo for my 2014 Race Red GT and it was a huge transformation from the stock metallic silver GT wheels in appearance. The looks and performance of the Mickey Thompson tires is a very notable one as well.Helpful (11)

My Saleen Style Black Wheels
I have always liked the the classic star pattern of the 5 spoke Saleen style wheels. I have them on my 2005 Mustang, and now on my 2014 Mustang. I have both cars decked out with the black Saleen style wheels the, the "05" is rimfire red with the stealthy black wheels and the "14" is a California Special black on black in black with the same stealthy black wheels. I would be envious if these wheels were on some other car, but I don't have to be envious because I have these fine wheels on my ride. Yip pi Ki aye.Helpful (13)

mustang black out
Looks good.Fits great.I didn't have to use any wheel spacers with my red calbier brake coversHelpful (12)
Can it fit my 2003 mustang gt
These are not compatible with 2003 models.
Hello, wheels part number 99259G05 which is Saleen style, does this fit my 2010 gt with Brembo brakes at front?? I want to buy the 19x10 for rear axle and the 19x8.5 or 19x8 or 19x9 for front axle. Obviously I want 4 wheels same style, meaning i wont buy the 2 for the back alone if the front ones dont match . Pls give me advice, thks.
These would not fit with the Brembo brakes up front no.
Does the nitro invo tire kit work with a 2" set up? Also, what's the thinnest tire that I can get as a combo with this rims? Thank you
All of our wheel and tire kits have been test fit to work with up to 2" of drop.
Does this package come with the all black center caps?
The Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit will come with Black center caps with a chrome American Muscle logo.
Can I buy just the rear rims and tires, how much would that cost?
The Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel & NITTO INVO Tire Kit would be a preassembled kit that would not be able to be split up. However, we can build you a wheel and tire kit just for the rear wheels.
Unfortunately, we would not be able to guarantee fitment for these with spacers. You will likely need to do some test fitting to find the right spacer size.
The Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit has been tested to clear without rubbing with cars lowered up to 2", so these should have no issues with the 1.5" lowering springs you have selected.
Hello! We only have two all season options that will fit the Saleen Style Black Wheel in a 19x 8.5. The Pirelli P Zero Nero's http://www.americanmuscle.com/pirelli-p-zero-neroamm.html OR The Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ http://www.americanmuscle.com/michelin-pilot-sport-as3amm.html. Both would be great all season alternatives to the Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z IIIs that come in the kit.
Hello! The Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit will fit an 11 GT. We don't carry an AM brand caliper cover, but if you're referring to the MGP Caliper Covers, they will still fit.
The Saleen Style Black Wheel will certainly work with your factory sensors!
The factory Ford center cap will not work with the Saleen Style Black Wheel - 19x8.5 (05-14 GT, V6) as the center cap size is smaller for the factory cap (2.25") compared to the Saleen Style Black Wheel center cap size (2.5").
YOU WONT NEED SPACERS IF YOUR CAR IS NON BREMBO :)
Absolutely. If you installed these 19x8.5 wheels along with the 245/45-19 tires, you could drop your Mustang up to 2" without any rubbing or clearance issues. Enjoy!
Sorry dude!! Not even close!! My 19" by 8.5 probably need alot of spacer!!! I sent them back and the gt 500 fit perfect with more clearance than the factory wheel!! Now my application is a 2013 with the brembo package! Since its getting up over the mid 600 hp i got the gt 500 in 10 x 18 for the rear!! Added 305/40/18 nt 555r!! Plenty of clearance but im not lowered either! Waiting for warm weather now!! Good luck!! Moexbowtie
We are in the process of getting all wheel weights posted in the Specs Tab in the very near future. This particular wheel weighs 24.11 lbs. Hope this helps!!
