- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I have with me Forgestar’s CF5 monoblock wheels available in your choice of either gunmetal, piano black, matte black, and silver, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. The CF5 features a timeline concave 5 spoke wheel design which never seems to go out of style, and looks good on pretty much every generation of Mustang both new and old. These monoblock or one piece aluminum wheels go through an advanced process during production, called rotary forging, what this does is greatly improve the strength of the barrel of the wheel, while managing to keep the overall weight down, you’re going to be looking at a very lightweight, very strong combination. The CF5’s are offered in a couple of different sizing options, we have an 18” version shown here in gunmetal, and a 19” diameter shown in Piano black. The wheels are also offered in both 9 and 10 inch widths, and because of the different width options, you can easily achieve that staggered fitment, by sticking the wider 10” wheels in the rear, and the 9’s up front. On the other hand you can go with the standard fitment, which will give you the same width wheels on all 4 corners, maintaining the ability to properly rotate your tires. Chances are if you’re picking up new wheels, you’re going to need new tires, we do offer a couple of pre built tire and wheels combinations, where we pair your new CF5’s up with some of the top tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your Mustang without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. On top of that you get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, and free shipping and handling, and finally all Forgestar wheels are backed by a lifetime warranty. When it does come time to install your new wheels and tires, just grab a floor jack and some basic hand tools. You’ll want to crack the lugs loose first with the car still on the ground, once you’ve done that simply jack the car up and swap all the wheels and tires, it doesn’t get much easier than this, but since there is a little work involved, we’ll call it an hour from start to finish just to be on the safe side. So if you dig the look of a classic 5 spoke wheel design and you want the sizing and strength benefits of the CF5’s, you might want to check out these quality, lightweight aluminum wheels from Forgestar, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

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!

This combo looks great and really changes the stance of the car. I love the wider tire in the rear it gives the car a tougher look. The finish on the wheels is amazing and the way they were mounted and shipped was great. I am very happy with whole package.Helpful (10)

Forgestar CF5 on 13'GT TrackPack
These Forgestars in piano black look great and the fit and finish are excellent. They are substantially lighter than the factory Brembo wheels, and the added width really fills out the wheel wells.Helpful (11)

Great look, excellent fit and finish. Shop install was $150 including moving the TPMS sensors from the stock rims to the new ones and re-syncing them, as well as rotating the tires. The rims are much lighter than the "Brembo" rims that came off the car. Ordered rims and had them next day ... once AM delivers (literally).Helpful (12)

Great Wheels. Worth Every Penny!
These rims look fantastic on the car. I would absolutely recommend Forgestar & Sumitomo to anyone looking for an aftermarket wheel package, especially the CF5's! The handling and ride of this package on my 2011 GT is great.Helpful (13)
Will these fit a 2014 gt500 6 piston caliper? With the 15in rotor?
The Forgestar CF5 Monoblock wheels in 19x9 will clear the GT500 brembos with no issues.
Will it clear brembo brakes on track package models?
The Forgestar CF5 Monoblock Piano Black Wheel will clear all Brembo Brake equipped cars from 2005-2014.
If I get these wheels professionally installed, will I need to purchase the sync tools?
All Mustangs from 2007+ will require TPMS sensors.
Simple installation for anyone.
