- 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

I received my tires and rims a very timely manner. They look amazing on my Stang. There was an issue with the weights falling off on of the wheels and AMR took care of rite away. Great service as always is the reason I keep going back to AMR. This is my second set of rims and tires. The factory tires lasted 28,000 miles and the Envo's lasted 42,000 miles as a replacement. I rotate them every 5000 miles.Helpful (1)

Ordering items from American Muscle
I have to say that items received was on point all items AMR rims 20 inches, shorty antenna,SR springs, rear louvers, struts front and rear and backlit ordered items on Saturday and they arrived on Tuesday a big WOW. I had to give 4 stars out of 5 because American Muscle messed up and send WRONG item instead sending me a 2014 backlit that send me a 2005 backlit very disappointing, however customer service willing to work with me kudos for that. On Saturday 20th I will be lowering my car and tires will me install next yr for the car show.Helpful (3)
Will these Rims be able to hold a 315x35x20 size tire?
Absolutely! It's the largest tire that we would recommend on the 20x10 wheels.
Hi. I have a 2014 GT and I want to buy this tire set. If I buy 20X10 is it not going to rub when I fully turn the steering wheel?
We do not recommend purchasing 20x10 wheels or any 10" wheel for the front of your vehicle because it will hinder your turning radius and may rub your fender wells.
What's the maximum drop with these while still avoiding rubbing and wheel well modification on an 06?
Hey Brandon These wheels will fit up to a 2" drop comfortably anything after that you're looking into extra work
What is the best amount of the air pressure "PSI" for this wheels, i have 32psi in main and I'm not too happy with it, HELP
I am currently on SR springs 1.5 drop all around, will I be able to fit 305/35r20 with out rubbing?
A 305 will clear but we would recommend being cautious around bumps.
Yes, these wheels will clear the Roush 6 piston brakes.
We would mount and balance this wheel/tire kit before shipping this out to you so you will receive the wheels with the tires already mounted on them. As for the weight on the wheels, they would be 34 lbs while the tires would be around 30 lbs for the shipping weight.
The offset will be a +48mm.
We recommend purchasing the TPMS tool as well, as the sensors need to be synced with the vehicle upon delivery and installation.
We generally recommend a set of lugs nuts from our website as they are guaranteed to fit our wheels. The factory lug nuts are not. The lug nut options can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/0509-lug-nuts.html.
The 20x10" AMR Charcoal Wheel will be physically able to fit a 305/35R20. Fitment on your vehicle will depend on vehicle ride height.
This set of Staggered AMR Charcoal Wheels will clear the factory upgraded Brembo packaged vehicles.
The total shipping weight of the AMR Charcoal Wheel - 20x8.5 is 33.8 pounds.
The AMR Wheel in 20x8.5 will fit with the upgraded Brembo Brake from factory with either the Performance Package or the GT500.
If you have wobble or vibration in steering wheel after installing this wheel and tire kit and swap your factory wheels back on and the wobble goes away entirely, the wheels and tires from the kit require rebalancing, which we would ask you contact for further details for compensation. Otherwise your vehicle may require an alignment, and that should remedy the steering wheel vibration.
Simple installation for anyone.
