- 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 AmericanMuscle 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 AmericanMuscle 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 AmericanMuscle 5 star style Saleen wheel for the 2005 and up Mustangs.

Saleen Style Black Wheel - 18x9 (05-14 GT, V6)
This is a great, relatively inexpensive upgrade from stock 18x8 rims. I wanted flashier, lighter, and wider rims than the stock ones on my 2012 GT Premium without Brembos. Compared to stock rims, these are 2 lbs. lighter, 1 inch wider, and have only 30mm offset instead of 40mm. The increase in width and decrease in offset make the rims stick out farther, which is exactly what I wanted. Two things to be aware of: (1) the lug holes are narrow and won't fit an impact socket and (2) the center caps come black - I painted the AM logo white to match the color of the car.Helpful (10)

I originally picked up a staggered set of track pack wheels for my 2013 (price was right) which looked ok but these make an amazing difference in the appearance of my car. Fast shipping and they all arrived in perfect condition.Helpful (10)

I absolutely love these! They totally changed the look and ride of my car. I have gotten so many compliments on them. I had AM mount and balance them but I had to get them balanced at a tire shop (no big deal $30) but I definitely recommend theseHelpful (10)

How much do these weigh?
The total weight of this wheel and tire kit will be approximately 149 pounds when shipped.
What's the biggest tire size that will fit this rim?
The biggest tire you can safely run would be a 285.
do you buy lugs separately? And will these fit my American muscle calipers
Our Wheel and Tire kits will not come with new lug nuts as a majority of our kits allow the re-use of the factory lug nuts. However, we offer a variety of lug nuts for separate purchase.
Where are American Muscle wheels made? The USA?
The Saleen Style Black Wheels are made in China.
What is an upgraded caliper that would fit with these wheels since big break kits will not? Stock gt500 setup? Big break kit with some trimming?
The Saleen Style Black Wheel will not clear the OEM Gt500/Track Pack GT Brembo brakes, or any other Big brake kits we are aware of at this time.
The Staggered Saleen Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit is also available in chrome, at the link below: https://www.americanmuscle.com/chromesaleenstyle-18in-0512-stag.html
Hey Carl, These wheels should fit on your pony without a problem. 05-14 mustangs have a little more room for bigger wheels then the generation before them. You can get any from 17"-20" wheels with out really running into any problems. And all American Muscle wheel and tire kits are designed to fit anything up to a 2" drop!
Hello! The 18x9 Saleen Style Black Wheels do not clear Brembo Brakes
Hello! The 18x9 Saleen Style Black Wheel will fit a 2006 Mustang, and these wheels will work with your Stock Lug Nuts.
The Saleen Style Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit in 18x9 can be rotated just as a normal set of wheels and tires would be rotated.
Unfortunately, the stock center caps will not work with these aftermarket wheels. The factory center caps have larger clips which causes them not to fit properly in aftermarket wheels.
Yes. My stock lug nuts fit for my 2013 GT. You may need a socket as the lug nut bar I had was too thick around. I did however change one out of each wheel for a lock lug
No you will need new ones
Mileage of these tires will very depending on your driving style. You will not be able to rotate them front to back either with the staggered set up...this will also reduce the longevity of the tires. The amount of city versus highway driving will affect how many miles you get as well. I would suspect, based on the tire rating, with rotation (side to side in this case) every 5,000 miles and average driving you could get about 35,000 miles. But the more aggressive your driving style (burn outs, etc) the quicker they will wear.
Our Specs Tab can be very a useful tool in finding different measurements and bits of information for all of our Wheels. This particular wheel weighs in at 24.9 lbs. Hope this helps!
Simple installation for anyone.
