- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at a classic Mustang wheel design and by far our most popular wheel here at American Muscle, I’m referring to these Bullitt wheels for all 99-04 Mustangs. Bullitt wheels have long been the favorite of many Mustang owners everywhere, from their classic 60s muscle car styling, in addition to the factory built Ford Bullitt Mustang in 01, then again in 08 and 09, it’s easy to see why these wheels are so popular on Mustangs of all ages. Our Bullitt wheels are available in 17” 18” and 19” diameters, and your choice of either gloss black, anthracite silver, matte black, or a chrome finish. The wheels are also available in either staggered or non staggered fitment, now a staggered fitment means that your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts, giving you that classic muscle car appearance, and that’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me. We have our gloss black 17x9’s on the front, and our gloss black 17x10 ½ ‘s on the rear, giving us that really aggressive stance. Now this will also help your traction as well, thanks to the fact that you get to run a big beefy tire out back to help you get that power down to the ground. The wheels are also available with a very cool deep dish option, now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, as you can see the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim, giving you that really nice lip that’s sure to get you noticed. If you want to check out what some of the other finishes might look like on your ride, then you’ll want to check out our 98 GT back there on the lift that’s sporting the chrome finish, or our 2000 GT back there on our dyno jet, sporting the anthracite silver look. Now whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured that we have your back, with a 1 year warranty on our finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty on all wheels. Of course you can purchase 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. This pairs your new Bullitt wheels up with some of the top 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. You also get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, optional nitrogen fill, and as always free shipping and handling. Installing a new set of wheels is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first, then jack up the car and swap the wheels, start to finish should take you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. So if you want to evoke that classic muscle car styling on your modern day ride, then these Bullitt wheels from American Muscle will give you an aggressive look that’s sure to never go out of style.

How do I keep my TPMS feature? Aftermarket wheels do not come with TPMS sensors. However, if you select 'Add TPMS Sensor Kit' and your specific year range from the options listed above, we'll install the TPMS Sensors in your new wheels!

Sorry guys, these have been on my car for a few months, they looked great when I first installed them, My car spends most of it's life in the garage, being driven about 600 miles per year. I got caught out in the rain once, put the car up without cleaning for a week. The Chrome is showing signs of pitting. I am not happy at all. I will be putting the stock wheels back on and try to recover some of my money on Craig ListHelpful (0)

center caps interchangeable?? Are the center cap emblems interchangeable?
Yes they are
Hello, I am planning on these for a 94 5.0 build, but I can't seem to find any information concerning which brake kits would fit. Is there a max Rotor size/caliper size I need to worry about? Would a Wilwood Front Disc Brake Kit Forged Narrow Superlite 6R 12.88" fit, or do I need to look for something smaller, such as a 11" kit? Thanks in advance!
We cannot guarantee fitment if you go with a bigger brake than stock with any of our bullitt wheels. We would highly suggest a test fit, however any big brake kits we have test fit any of our bullitt wheels with, we have found they do not fit.
What is the exact offset of the 17x9 17x8 chrome Bullitt wheels? Trying to figure out if they will fit my 1979 Fairmont I'm currently running 2000 Cobra rims on.
The exact offset is 30mm for both the 17x8 and 17x9 chrome Bullitt wheels, however we would not be able to guarantee fitment for these on a 1979 Fairmont.
Can I get these wheels and tires staggered, 17x9/17x10 and will that combo fit my '95 GT?
Hello! We do offer these wheels in a staggered set 17x9/17x10.5. However, this set does not include tires. You can purchase tires on the site separately, and still have them mounted and balanced.
Whats the best fitment of wheels and tire set to fit my 2004 v6 mustang
We can confirm fitment of up to a 275 up front and a 305 in the rear. Also, wheels where the second dimension is a 10 or larger are only designed to fit the rear of your Mustang. Otherwise, go with what you feel looks best!
The center caps are 2.5 inches in diameter.
The backspacing is 6.8" (174mm).
These center caps are 2.5", however factory caps will not work with these wheels. Our inventory status will provide an updated estimate of when these will be back in stock.
We no longer have this car to be able to tell you the tire that was on it as this video was shot a while ago. However, we do know the wheel size was a 19" on that car.
These wheels will fit on your car yes.
Unfortunately, we do not currently carry a set of 17x10.5" black bullet rims at this point in time.
This kit will work with your 2000 GT Mustang. You may have to remove/flip the quad shocks in the rear for the wider tires. If you are still on stock suspension, this kit will not require you to roll the fenders.
Anytime changing the wheel and tire size this will affect the speedometer by a little yes.
Simple installation for anyone.
