- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out the AMR wheels fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs available in your choice of either gloss black, silver, and charcoal. These concave multispoke design wheels have quickly become a fan favorite and are a good option for a Mustang owner who’s looking to take a break from the standard 5 spoke wheel design, typically found with a Bullitt or Cobra style wheel. The lightweight aluminum AMR’s are offered in several different sizing options, including an 18, 19 and 20” diameter, and an 8, 8 ½, 9 and 10” width. Because there’s several different sizing options, you can easily stick a wider wheel in the back with a more narrow one up front to help you achieve that classic muscle car stance known as staggered fitment, or on the other hand, you can put the same width wheel on all 4 corners, which will give you a standard fitment and allow you to properly rotate your tires in the future. To give you a better idea of how these wheels might look on your own ride, we outfitted some of the cars here in the shop with the wheels, starting with our 2011 GT behind me, which is equipped with the 20” version in charcoal, our 2013 back there on the lift is sporting the very sleek 18” AMR’s in gloss black, while finally our 2000 V6 back on the Dynojet is rocking the 19” version in silver. Of course you can purchase these wheels by themselves if you’d like, however the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, where we pair your new AMR’s up with some of the top performing tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. On top of that, you get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, and free shipping and handling. Finally, all AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a 1 year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. When you receive your new set of wheels and tires from AmericanMuscle, you’ll find that installing them is just as easy as ordering them, you’ll first want to make sure the car is on level ground and then crack the lugs loose before you get the car in the air, after that, jack the car up and swap out all 4 wheels and tires, and that's it, you can easily do all this in your driveway in about an hour’s time using some basic hand tools and a floor jack. These AMR wheels have become more and more popular with Mustang owners everywhere, and after seeing them on our own cars here in the shop, it’s easy to see why, so be sure to check out a set for your ride, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

The fit and finish is great. The look on a lowered s197 is outstanding. The stance is perfect, no poke. The wheels fit flush and I couldn’t be happier. I went with the 18x9’s all around. My car is on Eibach sportline, no rubbing issues. Tires are 255/45-18Helpful (0)

Great wheels that look awesome
Great wheel for the price. 18" staggered set looks great even at stock ride height. Ride was immediately improved by 200 having replaced some 20" icy hot stuntaz rims that came on my GT when i bought it. Looks great on the car and I get a ton of compliments on them on my 2006 GT.Helpful (3)

I have been looking for the right rims for a long time... Good price and great look ... Keeping the car looking as original as possible. These rims are exactly what I was looking for. With Sumitomo tires, they make the car ride smoothly...Helpful (7)
What's the offset, bolt pattern and center bore of these wheels thanks. I don't have a mustang but I like these wheels so need the rest of the specs to see if they would work for me
These AMR Charcoal Wheels have a +30mm (1.2") offset, 5x4.5" (5x114.3mm) bolt pattern, and a center bore of 70.6mm. That being said, we can only guarantee fitment for the 05-14, S197 model mustangs.
would 255 50r18 or 245 50r18 work on thes rims wtih out rubbing and Im alsom planing on lowerin my mustang 1 to 1.5 inches
The AMR Charcoal Wheel & NITTO INVO Tire Kit will come with four (4) NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance 255/45-18, which will work within a 2" drop.
I know some 18x10 wheels work on 2005-2009 S197's all the way around the car including the front, so long as they have a 42mm offset and 7.2" backspacing w/ 275/40r18 tires (confirmed after lots of reading) with up to a 1.5" suspension drop with no rubbing. I see these have a 7.2 backspacing but it's not giving the offset in the specs. I'm assuming it's 42mm? Thanks
The offset on the AMR Charcoal Wheel - 18x10 will be: +45mm (1.8"); you can find this information under the "Tech Specs" tab on all our wheel pages.
Will this product fit a 2018 ecoboost ; thx again
The 18x9" AMR Wheel will not fit the 2018 Ecoboost Mustang. This AMR Wheel fits the front or rear of all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt and 2005-2012 Shelby GT500 models.
Do the wheels come with wheel caps or would I need to purchase a set?
The AMR Charcoal Wheels include color matched "AM" Center Caps at no additional charge.
The OEM lug nuts will work with these wheels yes.
The Staggered AMR Charcoal Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit should be torqued to your OEM wheel torque of 100 ft-lbs.
The 18x10" AMR Charcoal Wheel works best with a 275/40R18 and will only fit in the rear. Front tie size will depend on if you choose to use an 18x8" or 18x9" for the front.
The Staggered AMR Charcoal Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit would have no issues replacing your existing kit, and is guaranteed to fit up to 2" of lowering.
The weight for the AMR Wheels are: 18x9 - 24.7 lbs 18x10 - 26.7 lbs 19x8.5 - 26.9 lbs (we do not carry a 19x9) 19x10 - 27.1 lbs
We do not recommend AMR Charcoal Wheel - 18x10 (05-14 All) or any 10" wide wheels on the front of your Mustang as the 10" wide will cause clearance issues. Along with clearance issues, it will also cause a decrease in the drivability of your vehicle when turning.
Yes, if you purchase the Staggered AMR Charcoal Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (05-14 All) along with TPMS Full Mounting/Balancing Kit - 4 Wheels (10-14 All) item #76161 (www.americanmuscle.com/tpms-fullkit-2010.html) or TPMS Full Mounting/Balancing Kit - 4 Wheels (07-09 All) item #76160 (www.americanmuscle.com/tpms-fullkit.html) the TPMS sensors will come pre-installed.
The NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tire 255/45-18 and the NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tire 275/40-18 have a speed rating of W- 168 MPH.
The AMR Charcoal Wheel - 18x9 (05-14 All) will work in conjunction with the MGP Caliper Covers.
The Staggered AMR Charcoal Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (05-14 All) will work with the Stoptech ST40 14" brake kit as this has clearance for the GT500 model Mustangs. The only exception will be the 2013-2014 GT500 Mustangs.
Simple installation for anyone.
