- 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 AmericanMuscle 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 AmericanMuscle 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 AmericanMuscle 5 star style Saleen wheel for the 2005 and up Mustangs.

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 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)

Great look great grip. Zero buyers remorse.
Very satisfied! Pothole ate two wheels. I needed tires. The Saleen styling is a perfect retro look for my black GT. The Sumotomo tires look great. And are Z rated. Happy with the price. Shipping was good. But I paid for 2 day, and only got 3 wheels. The 4th came Monday. Over all Good job American Muscle!Helpful (12)

Totally changes the appearance!
These wheels look great! Totally changed the appearance of my 05gt and I get compliments all the time now. They should come with neck braces! Lol I got the 18s staggered 255 in the front and 275 in the rear. Installing my Eibach sportline Springs soon so we'll see how they turn out. Only disappointment I had was that these wheels were not properly balanced from Americanmuscle.com so when I would drive the steering wheel would shake and it was a terrible drive quality. Had to end up paying $80 somewhere else to get them properly balanced. Other than that wheels are great! Highly recommend!Helpful (11)

Not sure what looks better the tires ,wheels ,caliper covers or the suspension drop...but either way it made a shortstopper out of this little GT...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.
I bought this rims from a dude. He said it came off a 04 mustang. Will this fit my 09 mustang. They have the same bolt pattern.
Can I get these wheels in 18x10 Rim's for the back of my 06 mustang.
This wheel is currently not available in an 18x10.
For the 28251G10 Saleen Wheel; can you tell me what the center bore is? I'm attempting to retrofit these wheels onto my '05 Mercury Grand Marquis, that has a 2.78" hub bore. Thank You
This Saleen Style Wheel will come with a 70.6mm center bore.
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.
Unfortunately these will not clear the brembo brake equipped 2005-2014 Mustang GT models.
We currently do not offer the Saleen Style Chrome Wheel in a 20" version.
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!!
