- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a look at our race inspired FR500 wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs. These wheels are inspired by the factory built turnkey racecar the Ford Mustang FR500. Now these cars were built for one sole purpose: to be all out track monsters using beefed up suspension, and a slightly more radical engine. Now the styling of these wheels is drawn from the more aggressive racecar appearance that differentiated these models from their road going counterparts. Our FR500 wheels are available in both 17 and 18” diameters, and your choice of either black, black chrome, anthracite silver, or chrome finish. Now you can buy these wheels individually if you like, however the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, that pair your new FR500 wheels up with some of the better performing tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. Not only that you get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, free mounting and balancing, and optional nitrogen fill. Now the wheels are available in both staggered and non staggered fitment and with the always cool deep dish feature. Now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, this means that the face of the rim is set further back from the rim, resulting in a nice thick lip which looks very cool. As I mentioned before you can get the wheels in a staggered fitment which simply means your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts giving you that classic muscle car look. That’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me, got the black 18x9’s up front, and as you can see we’ve got the black 18x10’s out back, giving us that really tough stance. This will also help our traction as well, thanks to the fact that we get to run a slightly wider rear tire, helping us get that power down to the ground. To give you an idea of what some of the different finishes look like we’ve equipped our 98 GT on the lift there with a set of anthracite silver FR500’s. Next to that on our Dynojet we have our 2000 GT, sporting the very sharp chrome finish. Whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured knowing that we here at AmericanMuscle have your back with a 1 year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. When you receive your new set of wheels from AmericanMuscle you’ll find that installing them is as easy as ordering them, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first while your car is still on the ground, then jack the car up and swap the wheels. Doing all of that takes you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. If you’re a fan of racecar styling and you want your ride to be inspired by a true purpose built racecar, then you’ll definitely want to check out a set of our FR500 wheels for your Mustang.

Race-inspired, street friendly. Now you can have the modern split "Y" spoke styling of the FR500 Mustang for your very own Pony. These FR500 rims look like they're tearing up the track, even when just sitting in your garage.
Deep Dish Design. Our deep dish FR500 rim exaggerates the width for an aggressive stance that commands attention.
Triple Chrome Plated. This wheel is plated in a three step process that includes copper, nickel, and then chrome for a bright show winning shine. Lighter than other chrome wheels which are steel underneath, these wheels are cast from lightweight aluminum so they won't slow you down.
Application. This 17x10.5 FR500 Style Wheel fits the rear only of the 1994-1998 Mustangs, including the V6, GT and SVT Cobra models. Stagger with 17x9 FR500s wheels on the front for a classic muscle car stance & improved traction.
Technical Note. Will not fit Mustangs equipped with Baer EradiSpeed+1 rear brakes.
Recommended Tire Size:
Technical Note. Due to the limited space in the rear wheel wells of the 1994-2004 Mustangs, we highly recommend you flip or completely remove the rear quad shock for proper fitment. Slight rubbing may occur on the inside of the wheel and tire without this modification.
Note. Priced per wheel.
