Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive.
What is TPMS? The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS for short) is a factory installed safety feature on all 2007 and newer Ford Mustangs that alerts you when your tire pressure drops to an unsafe limit.
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!

They need to stop selling these, you can see sand scratches under the chrome. I bought my fronts open box and got em cheap , so no big deal. Then I ordered 10” rears and figured out why the fronts were open box. The finish is terrible on these wheels.Helpful (0)

Starting to loose chrome plating - (Pit)
I bought these installed with the purchase of 4 staggered (18" - 9" Front and 10 Rear") NITTO and FR500 wheels for my 2013 Mustang Premium GT. After 1 year 10 months (October 08, 2015 to 8-8-2017) and 7,000 miles these rims are loosing the chrome plating (pits) around the wheel where the spokes connect. Unfortunately there is only a 1 Yr warranty. They were beautiful when I got them and I keep them very clean. (Order Number# 6328449)Helpful (21)

Will these fit a 5-lug conversion Fox Body?
The Staggered FR500 Style Chrome Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will not fit a Fox Body with 5 lug conversion.
Will these work on a 14 got brembo package car
Yes, this wheel/tire kit will fit a 2014 GT with the Brembo brakes without an issue.
Will stock Ford center caps from GT500 work with these wheels
The FR500 Style Chrome Wheel will not accept OEM center caps.
Will the Foose Legend Chrome Wheel - 18x9.5 fit my 2016 Mustang GT Convertible with Brembo brakes?
No, the Foose Legend wheels have a spoke pattern that will not accomidate the larger Brembo calipers.
What’s the biggest rear tire I can put on with a rate 1.5 drop on a 06 mustang
For a 2006 with a 1.5 drop we would recommend a 285/35/18 or even the 295/35/18. Generally the 295 is the largest tire to stay flush with the wheel well so you do not encounter rubbing issues
Hello! Unfortunately, we do not carry the FR500 wheel in Black Chrome.
Hello! Unfortunately, we have not tested these on the Roush Big Brake package. So, we cannot guarantee fitment on a 2006 Roush Stage 3.
Hello! You can add the FR500 Style Chrome wheels and the tires you want to your cart; and still have them mounted and balanced. Just select the Free Mount and Balance option on the tire page.
Hi, These 18x9 FR500 Style Chrome Wheels will only work with the Ford Performance Front Rotor Upgrade Kit Item #50159 it upgrades the stock V6 11.5" front rotors to the larger GT 12.4" rotors for increased stopping power. Here is the link http://www.americanmuscle.com/ford-rotor-upgrade-0511v6.html
The only application that these wheels will not work on is a 2013-2014 GT500. If your brakes will be the equivalent to that size than they will not work. If it is just an upgrade kit for your year Mustang you should be just fine!
The Staggered FR500 Style Chrome Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (05-14) comes with (2) Sumitomo HTR Z II 255/45-18 Tires & (2) Sumitomo HTR Z II 275/40-18 Tires. The rear sidewall is 40 whereas the front is 45 giving it the illusion that it is smaller.
About the same as a stock wheel.
Simple installation for anyone.
