- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me the 1994 Cobra R style wheels, fitting all 99-04 Mustangs, available in your choice of either silver, black, chrome, and black with a polished lip. The 99 Cobra R’s were all about one thing – performance. Only 250 of these lightweight high horsepower SN95’s were built, and besides their awesome track worthy performance, included some very unique styling cues, which feature these aggressive 5 spoke wheels. These Cobra R style wheels are cast from lightweight aluminum so they’re not going to be adding any unwanted weight to your ride. As for sizing options, we’re looking at a 16, 17, and 18 inch diameter, with widths ranging from an 8” wide wheel, all the way up to the very wide 10.5” option. Because of the wide range of sizes available, you can always stick a 10 or 10.5” wheel in the rear, and an 8” wheel up front which will give you that classic muscle car staggered fitment. Besides looking great, this will also allow you to run some serious rubber in the rear, which should definitely help your traction. In addition to the staggered possibility, these Cobra R style wheels are also available with the always cool deep dish option, this sets the face of the wheel further back into the rim, resulting in a nice big lip, what’s great about this is, you can run a deep dish wheel in the back, and a non deep dish wheel in front for a more dramatic look, or you can just run deep dish all around for a more uniform look, it’s entirely up to you. As you can see our 98 GT right here is sporting a very stealthy 17” gloss black Cobra R’s and on the lift behind me our 2000 V6 is equipped with the 18” chrome version. Finally our 2000 GT back there on the Dynojet is equipped with the 16” Cobra R’s in silver. If you’re interested in picking up a new set of tires with your wheels, then you should definitely check out one of our prebuilt tire and wheel combinations. Here we pair your Cobra style wheels up with some of the top 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. In addition, you also get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, and free mounting and balancing. Finally, don’t forget that all AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a lifetime structural warranty, and a one year warranty on all finishes. If you’ve never installed a set of wheels and tires before, don’t worry it couldn’t be easier. All you need is a floor jack, some basic hand tools, and about an hour’s time. 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, swap the wheels, and that’s it. So if you’re a fan of the aggressive 5 spoke wheel design that looks right at home here on the SN95 and on the New Edge Mustang, then be sure to check out these 95 Cobra R style wheels available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Don't waste your money!
I bought these chrome wheels thinking they were a quality product at a good price but boy was I wrong. I haven't driven my car 1 mile since putting them on as it's a project car and a few months after installing them the chrome began to splinter in various areas and crackle around the lug nut openings. Do not waste your money on these or trust me you'll be dissappointed!Helpful (0)

Great deal on a sweet wheel!

Can I buy the 1995 Cobra R Style Chrome Wheel Sumitomo Tire Kit with 275/40R17 rear tires?
We do not have a pre-assemble kit with the 275 for the rear. However you can build a wheel and tire kit and use a 275 for the rear. If you want to contact us we would be happy to help you build a kit! https://www.americanmuscle.com/contact.html
What is the difference between the 1995 Cobra R Style Chrome Wheel and the 2003 Cobra R Style Rims besides the year?
The 17x9 2003 Cobra Style Chrome Wheel (item #28004) differs in design, as well as offset and backspacing.
What is the difference between the 1995 Cobra R Style and the 2003 Cobra Style rims besides the year? I have Cobra 18X10 5 lug 4.5 spacing Cobra rims with 265/40/18 tires on my car now and they are to close to the outside of fenders. I need a smaller rim and tire so am hoping the 17X9 with 245/40/17 tires will fix my problem. These rims will be installed on the rear end of a 1947 Ford.
can this be a replacement for original wheels ?
While this can replace your OEM wheels, it is not an exact OEM replacement.
I have original cobra rims and one is dented so badly that I have to order a new one will this go on with the 3 original rims balanced ? And will my center cap fit ?
If you were to order another, it will go perfectly fine with the other 3 wheels and the center cap should fit without any issues.
For the center caps that come with this kit please see item #13116.
This wheel is made by American Muscle. It is a replica wheel produced by AM.

The 1995 Cobra R Style Wheels are hub-centric meaning you will not need hub-centric rings for installation. These wheels are only applicable for 94'-04' Mustangs.
