- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everybody Dave with AmericanMuscle.com and I am here with one of the more popular wheel styles for the 2005 and newer Mustang. I have the American Muscle Saleen style wheel. These wheels are designed to look just like the 5 star Saleen wheels seen on the cars over the years, our Saleens would definitely set you off from the pack and they’re available in an 18” diameter. You can get them in a chrome, a black, and a matte black finish. They’re available in an 18x9 and an 18x10, giving you the option to go with the old school staggered setup, or a non staggered fitment. No matter what wheel size, style or finish you decide, one thing we guarantee you is that wheel is going to look and function perfectly, and American Muscle offers you a 1 year finish and a lifetime structural warranty on all of our wheels. You can buy the wheels separate, but we offer you pre packaged tire and wheel combos, where we take your wheel and pair it up with some of the best performing tires on the market. And by sticking with a wheel and tire combo, it’s going to go ahead and take the hassle out of buying wheels and tires that fit right, and it’s going to guarantee you perfect fitment on your Mustang, even if it’s been lowered up to 2”. We’re also going to go ahead and ship these to your house for free, we’ll mount and balance them for free, and for all you customers with a 2007 and up Mustangs, don’t forget to pick up your TPMS sensors when ordering your wheels. Once the wheels and tires arrive they’re ready to install right out of the box, you’re just going to want to go ahead and crack the lug nuts loose with the car on the ground, and then secure the car, jack the car up and finish removing your lug nuts and your old wheel and tire, take the new Saleen, slide her right in place, lower it and tighten it, and you’re good to go. All in all you’re looking at about an hour to install. If the looks you’re after are that of the clean, race inspired Saleen Mustang, then you’re definitely going to want to pick up a set of the American Muscle 5 star style Saleen wheel for the 2005 and up Mustangs.

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!

Saleen Style Chrome Wheels
These wheels seem to be well made and have a nice chrome plate finish that should hold up for years. There were a few flaws in the finish on the inside of the wheels that had been touched up paint that didn't adhere well. When I wiped the wheels down with an oily paper towel the paint came off exposing the flaws. I doubt anyone will ever notice them because it looks like the wheels have water spots on them.Helpful (0)

Saleen style wheels.
The rims look great and fit the brake upgrade we installed. I continue to have an issue with the air pressure valve stem sensors as about 30 miles into my drive it tells me I have low tire pressure. Sometimes the dash warning goes off on it’s own but not always. Overall I am very satisfied.Helpful (4)

Awsome!! Great rims!
Put some Toyo 295/35 18. The total height of the tire dropped from 27.25" to 26.20" so about an 1" difference. Once I lower the rear 1.5" it will look perfect. The chrome has a brilliant shine!Helpful (4)

Saleen wheels tires
Great looking wheels and the tires are okay (made in China). My major disappointment with this package is the wheels were not properly balanced and the pressure in the tires was not consistent.Helpful (12)

Will this 18x9 work with a tire size 235/50ZR 18?
We recommend a 255/45R18 for this 18x9 Saleen Style Wheel for proper fitment. A 235/50 tire will physically mount onto a 18x9, however we would not be able to confirm if that tire size would cause any rubbing without knowing your specific suspension set-up.
What is the biggest tire I can run on this 18x10s
I have a 2006 mustang GT and the stock size for the car is 18/8.5. I’m looking to get a different set of wheels and Americanmuscle only offers one set of wheels with that size. If I got a bigger size wheel, say an 18/9, or even a 19 inch, how or would that affect the way the car drives differently than the stock? I use my car for everyday driving.
Getting a larger size rim/tire set up will not affect how the car drives unless you get a low profile tire which may cause a stiffer ride. This kit is outfitted with 18x9 rims.
will these wheels fit a 2014 mustang gt with BREMBO BRAKES
Unfortunately these will not clear the brembo brake equipped 2005-2014 Mustang GT models.
What is the offset of these wheels?
The offset for this wheel is +45mm (1.8").
We currently do not offer the Saleen Style Chrome Wheel in a 20" version.
This 18x10 Saleen Style Chrome Wheel will not properly fit the 87' LX Mustang. This wheel is specifically intended for installation on the 05'-14' Mustang GT and V6.
This Saleen Style Chrome Wheel with our recommended tire size of a 255/45 will keep the speedometer within an acceptable range for the speedometer. If you go with a tire size tire, it may require a speedometer calibration.
At this time we do not offer the Saleen Style Wheels in silver.
These will not fit on the new S550 Mustangs as the bolt pattern changed from the S197s.
Hello! The Staggered Saleen Style Chrome Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will fit your 09 GT.
Hello, If your mustang is stock then yes these will fit with no issues.
Ford's Tri-Bar Pony center caps will not fit these wheels because the teeth on the back of the cap is shorter than the American Muscle center cap which is what the Saleen wheel accepts.
The brakes that come on a Shelby are too big for the wheels on the Staggered Saleen Style Chrome Wheel & NITTO INVO Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (05-14 All, Excluding GT500)
You can run these 18x9 wheels with the 255/45-18 tires without having to worry about the speedometer being off! Just bolt on and enjoy!!
