- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out our AmericanMuscle GT500 style wheels for your 94-04 Mustang. GT500s have always been the baddest Mustangs on the block, and now your ride can enjoy the stylings of the 2010 GT500, thanks to these split 5 spoke design wheels. The wheels are available in 3 different finishes, including a black painted finish, a triple dipped chrome finish, and a black machined finish. As for the sizing, the wheels are available in 18” diameters with a 9” front and a 10” rear, or a 19” diameter with an 8 ½ “ front, and a 10” rear. Now the staggered fit is cool for a couple different reasons, first off, it looks awesome, a wider rear tire and wheel combination makes for a much more aggressive appearance, and also helps give you better traction thanks to the wider rear tire. Not only that the narrower front tire gives better handling thanks to more responsive steering. It’s a win-win. Of course you can purchase these wheels individually if you’d like but the smart move would be to take advantage of our pre built tire and wheel combos that pair your new GT500 style 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. Not only that you get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, optional nitrogen fill, and as always free shipping. These aluminum AM wheels are extremely durable, but if you should ever encounter a problem, each rim is covered by a lifetime structural warranty, as well as a one year warranty on the finish. Now your factory lug nuts will work just fine with your new wheels, however if you really want to complete the look, you might want to check out a set of matching lugs depending on what style of wheel you’re going with. For instance on our 2000 V6 here, we’ve opted for the black acorn style lug nut, to go along with our black powder coated wheel, for a really clean look. You also might want to check out some wheel locks to make sure you protect your investment as well. A new set of wheels can drastically alter the attitude and appearance of any ride, so give your 94-04 Mustang a serious attitude adjustment thanks to these GT500 style wheels.

These 18x9 GT500 rims feature a split 5 spoke design and a European style flange-less lip for awesome sleek styling. They are plated in a three step process that includes copper, nickel, and then chrome for a bright show winning shine.
275/35-18 Sumitomo Maximum Performance HTR Z5 Tire. Sumitomo's HTR Z5 seriestire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressive design delivers extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, on and off the track.
Free Nitrogen Fill. AmericanMuscle is proud to bring you the option to fill your tires with pure nitrogen for FREE when we mount & balance your wheel and tire order. Filling your high performance tires with nitrogen can result in longer tire life and improved fuel economy. Nitrogen can also better regulate tire pressure changes that occur with the change in temperatures throughout the year, so your Stang will be ready to roll no matter what season it is!
Application. This 18x9 Chrome 2010 GT500 Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit fits all 1999 to 2004 Mustangs, including the V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models.

36 Months of Protection. The Road Hazard Protection Program is good for 3-Years (36 Months) from the purchase date printed on the program certificate or until any part of the tire tread that comes in contact with the road has a tread depth of 2/32” or less, whichever comes first.
Flat Tire Changing Assistance. Enrolled customers are eligible for reimbursement of up to $75 for roadside flat changing assistance provided by a licensed service provider. This is limited to the roadside installation of the customer’s own usable spare tire. Customer must have a spare tire. The customer would pay the service provider for flat tire changing and then be reimbursed.
Flat Tire Repair. Enrolled customers are eligible for Flat Tire Repair up to $20 per tire. This repair would include labor and patch. Reimbursement is limited to two flat tire repair claims during the coverage terms of 3-Years/36 months. The customer would pay the service provider for flat tire repair and then be reimbursed.
Note: The stock lug nuts (13/16”) prove to be too large when used in conjunction with these wheels. Please take a look at the Lug Nut Ordering Options above for some compatible options.

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!

Looks Great but Whats with the 285/35-18 Tires???
I installed these wheels on my 2001 Zinc Yellow Cobra and cannot say how much I love how these wheels look on her! It really gives the Cobra a more newer and aggressive stance compared to the original 17x8 rims that were originally on the car. I would definitely recommend these wheels again! The tires are a different story though. The 275/35-18 Sumitomos on the front rims look outstanding but what is up with putting 285/25-18 on the rear? The sidewalls look stretched and do not give these wheels any protection if you happen to come near a curb! What is up with this American Muscle? If AM offered 295/35-18 tires in place of the ones offered, I would have jumped all over them!Helpful (7)

Worried about wheel suspension clearance. I have a 2003 V6 and read one of the reviews that these tires rubbed the suspension when doing a hard turn. Is this true? If not why might that person have stated that. Also, are there any other tires combinations that would go with these wheels that might sit a little taller in the wheel well? What do you guys recommend. Those wheels look great and am considering them for my 'stang but don't want any rubbing issues. Thanks much, Chris
My 2001 Cobra is sitting on a set of Tokico D-Spec shocks with matching Tokico springs. The car does sit lower than most but is not slammed. With that in mind, I am not having any issues with the tires rubbing on the car or any other issues for that matter. I say go for it as these wheels do look outstanding!
Simple installation for anyone.
