Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at our 2003 Cobra style wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs in your choice of either black or chrome. These wheels pay tribute to the terminator Cobras that originated in 2003 and are hands down my favorite modern Mustang. With that signature supercharger whine, that aggressive front end, and these 5 spoke wheels, there wasn’t much not to like. These lightweight aluminum wheels are offered in 17” diameter only, and your choice of either triple dipped chrome, gloss black finish, and for the black deep dish option, black with a polished lip. Now we have the latter installed on our 2000 GT behind me, and on our 98 GT on our Dynojet, sporting the very stealthy gloss black look. Now it’s easy to see these wheels look great on both the SN95 and the New Edge platform. But without a doubt our most popular choice is shown right behind me on our V6, with the chrome deep dish 17x9’s up front, and the 17x10.5’s in the rear, giving us that staggered look that instantly transforms our ride into full on muscle car status. Not only that, you get to run a massive 315 size tire out back, giving you all the traction you can handle. Part of the reason you’re able to run such a massive tire in the rear is due to the fact that these wheels are offered in the very cool deep dish option. Now this simply means that the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim, resulting in that nice wide lip which looks awesome. Now with some of our other AmericanMuscle wheels you do have the option of mixing a standard fitment wheel up front with a deep dish wheel out back, however due to the design of these Cobra style wheels, you either have to go deep dish on all four corners, or standard fitment all around, it’s up to you. If you’ve never installed a new set of wheels and tires on your car, don’t worry, it couldn’t be easier. All you need is a few hand tools and a floor jack. First step is you want to make sure your car is on level ground, once you do that crack the lugs loose first, jack your car into the air and swap the wheels. That’s it, you’re done, it shouldn’t take you any more than an hour. Now obviously you can’t install these wheels without tires so you’ll definitely need to take care of that. You can always do that on your own or let us do all the work for you with one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, here we give you a couple of different tire options which are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing even if you’re lowered a little bit. You’ll even save yourself a little money in the process thanks to our free mounting and balancing and as always free shipping and handling. And with all AmericanMuscle wheels you have peace of mind knowing that your wheels are backed by a 1 year warranty on finish, and a lifetime structural warranty as well. It’s easy to say that sometimes less is more, that’s exactly the case with these wheels, the aggressive 5 spoke design of these 2003 Cobra style wheels is sure to turn any Mustang from average to terminator in no time and they can be found right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Wheels showed up in great condition. But one of my nitto tires had rub marks on the outside of the tire. some of the rubber nipples were off already. Not sure what happened to them. was not bad enough for me to waste my time to send them back and have my car on jack stands blocking my garage. But bad enough to make me mad especially for all the money I spent on them.Helpful (4)

Im trying to upgrade my wheels and was wondering if i get the 17*9 for the front and the 17*10.5 for the rear what size tire can i run no problem, for example can i do 245/45/17 for the front and 275/40/17 in the rear or 305/45/17
What is the widest tire I can run on these 9” wheels
The 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel - 17x9 can fit a 275 for the widest tire.
i need just one rim, but want to make sure it fits! i have a 245/45 zr 17 99w (from the tire i have on right now) 17x(8/0)JJET (1/2)mm (that info is in the back of the rim ()= circles is there a way to confirm this is the same?
The 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel will work with that tire no problem! As far as the size it sounds like your wheel is a 17x8 and this will be a 17x9. This wheel will still fit it just won't match up to the stock wheels.
I have the staggered fit. The look of the car with the Eibach lowering springs, from AM. The problem is that with any kind of bump the wheel arch cuts the tires. What are the best ways to remedy the problem. I would hate to put the stock springs back on.
With the car lowered the best way to eliminate the rubbing issues would be to change to smaller tires. If you want to keep your tires and springs, you would have to take the car to a shop, and have the fenders rolled.
You state some modification is needed to use original SVT caps. Can you be specific about what the modification is?
Hello! The locking mechanism on the center caps will have to be modified to lock the SVT center caps in place.
The Staggered 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 wheels come with the Chrome "AM" style center caps. If you want to purchase different center caps they can be found under wheel accessories > center caps. The best matching center caps would be Chrome AmericanMuscle Center Cap (Item 390480) for individual center caps or Chrome AmericanMuscle Center Cap Kit (Item 393490). Center Caps: http://www.americanmuscle.com/1013-centercaps.html Item 390480: http://www.americanmuscle.com/chrome-am-center-cap-9417.html Item 393490: http://www.americanmuscle.com/chrome-am-center-cap-kit-9417.html
As long as you have the 5-lug conversion, yes the Staggered 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 (99-04) should fit on a Foxbody. Also, 10.5" in the rear would be the widest wheel that you would be able to fit without body modifications.
The 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel - 17x9 (94-04 All) with 275s will fit no problem under your lowered Mustang.
That's exactly what I have on my '04. It looks really good, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on the wheels at Mustang Week. Gives you the look of staggered without buying 2 different tire sizes.
If you have 99-04 rotors and calipers, the 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9 (99-04) will work as the clearance will match this tire kit.
You can drop your Mustangs up to 2" without any worries in regards to rubbing or clearance issues. This wheel and tire combo would be a great complement to the H&R SS Springs!
Simple installation for anyone.
