- 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

MAJOR update in the over all look of the car
Why do custom wheels just look better? I dont know but they sure do. THIS IS WHAT A MUSTANG SHOULD LOOK LIKE and unfortunately from the dealer you gonna have to spend an upwards of 40 grand to drive one off the lot liek this.... But then again you can just build your own Muscle Car for a lot less less like I DID ... and these wheels were the cherry on top... BOOMHelpful (0)

AMR Charcoal Wheel - 18x8
Exceptional quality and great looks. Does not show brake dust! Only time you have to clean is if you get on wet roads. Don't know why anybody would spend big bucks for wheels that looks similar. Makes for a good inexpensive semi skinny front set of wheels on my GT500 with a 225 wide tire.Helpful (12)

Two small issues.
Bought the wheel/tire package. Pirellie p zero nero tites are nice and smooth with good wet and dry traction. Only issue was a small scratch on one wheel and missing one valve stem cap. AM sent new caps and credited my account for the minor scratch. Wheels definitely make the ride and these wheels do just that. Highly reccomend this product.Helpful (11)

These wheels look awesome! I'm going with a Grabber Orange/Matte Black theme. They are called "charcoal" which I was kind of worried about when ordering but they match great. They give the 'stang a "mean" look. I've had them on less than a week and I've gotten several compliments and many head turns!Helpful (12)

Great look that transforms your cars image
I ordered the 18x8 mickey Thompson tires with charcoal amr rims. It gave a complete image change of my car. This gives your car a wow factor that you can be proud of. After having them on for one day, I have received numerous compliments and guys it gets the ladies looking. I highly recommend this item and also make sure to order tpms sensors otherwise your tire pressure light will turn on.Helpful (13)
When buying these rims, what lug nuts would be recommended to guarantee they fit?
We would recommend a set of acorn or a set of 6-Spline lug nuts for these wheels. The factory lug nuts may be too wide for fitment.
What is the maximum speed these are rated for?
These tires have a speed rating of "Y" which is 186 mph.
Will my speedometer be affected on my 08 v6 with stock Wheels and tires on before. If so, what will I need to buy to get that fixed?
The AMR Charcoal Wheel & Pirelli Tire Kit will casue your speedometer to change slightly yes. To fix this you will need a handheld tuner which will correct this issue. I will have the link below to these. https://www.americanmuscle.com/bama-revx-tuner-sct-3customtunes-0510v6.html
Does these fit with the stock v6 lug nuts
The factory lugs nuts will not work with the AMR Charcoal wheels. It is recommended to purchase a new set of lug nuts as they are guaranteed to fit these wheels: https://www.americanmuscle.com/1013-lug-nuts.html.
What is the center cap size
The AMR Charcoal Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will have a 2.5" center cap.
AMR stands for "American Muscle Racing"
The AMR Charcoal Wheels may be lighter or heavier than your stock wheels depending on which ones came on your car. There are multiple different wheel packages that available from the dealership.
Depending on the size you have now, if the overall diameter changes when you switch tires your speedometer certainly will be affected. Any of the number of tuners we offer would absolutely correct this.
Yes, 18x8 inch wheels will fit on all four corners of your 2010 Mustang V6.
Hey Isa. The recommended tire size for that 18x8 would be a 255/45-18 thats for front and rear because you do not want to go wider on that small of a wheel.
Unfortunately, the 18x8 AMR Charcoal Wheels will not fit on your 2016 Mustang GT. You will need to go up to a 19" or 20" so that there is proper clearance for the calipers. Also, you will need to make sure you pick the correct wheel for your year.
The Charcoal AMR wheel 18x8 (05-14 All) will work with factory lug nuts just fine.
Stock lugs will work just fine
The AMR Charcoal Wheel - 18x8 (05-14 All) will be a painted finish.
Yes they will work with the stock tires. I currently have these rims on the stock tires on my 14 GT
