- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out Forgestar’s F15 monoblock wheels, available in your choice of either matte black, gun metal, piano black, and silver, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. At first glance you can see the design of the F14 Is more of a multispoke mesh wheel design, which has become extremely popular with the Mustang crowd as of late, which is course due to cars such as the RTR and the 2013 GT 500, both of which sport a variation of the mesh wheel design. These monoblock or one piece aluminum wheels go through an advanced process during production called rotary forging, this greatly improves the strength of the wheel, specifically the barrel, and generally reduces the weight of the wheel itself. The F14’s are offered in a wide variety of sizing options including an 18, 19, and 20 inch diameter, and in 9, 10, and 11 inch widths. Because there are a few different width options available, you can easily achieve that classic staggered look, by sticking a wider rear wheel and tire in the back versus the front, which in my opinion is the only way to roll. Chances are if you’re buying new wheels, you’re going to need new tires, we offer a pre built combinations, where we pair your F14’s up with some of the top tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your car without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. Of course you can also take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, free shipping and handling. Finally, all Forgestar wheels are backed by a lifetime structural warranty. When it does come time to install your new wheels just grab a floor jack and some basic hand tools. You’ll want to crack the lugs loose first on the stock wheels before getting the car in the air, after you do that, jack the car up and swap the 4 wheels and tires. Doesn’t get a lot easier than this, but since there is a little work involved, we’ll call it an hour from start to finish. So if you’re looking to take a break from the standard 5 spoke wheel and you want to go with a more modern multispoke mesh wheel design, then be sure to check out these quality lightweight aluminum wheels from Forgestar available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Very nice wheels, but you’ll need a spline type lug nut 1/2-20 so you can tighten down those new wheels without chipping them!Helpful (0)

Piano black F14
We'll packaged and quick delivery. Had to paint lug holes because they were not powder coated and three different size lugs tried would not hide silver. Unlike what is said in the description black does not hide brake dust, your wheels look dirty and gray, so clean often. Finish looks nice, hope it holds up and we get a few years of good use on both road and track.Helpful (6)

Expensive wheels, but a bargain considering the quality
I had a few reasons for wanting a new set of wheels. I wanted something lighter and wider. I also wanted something to handle possible track duty. Most forged wheels cost more than double the price. They look great too.Helpful (5)

Much Better than stock
I had several reasons for this purchase. 1) OEM fitted tires were reaching end of life 2) OEM tires and Wheels were not providing enough straight line grip or grip in the corners 3) I would like to fit a Big Brake package at some point 4) lose some weight over the OEMs. With those goals in mind I came down to either these or Enkei PF01s. Ended up going with these instead because I liked the looks a bit more, and their American made as a bonus. They certainly aren't cheap, but they are much less expensive considering the durability and strength of these wheels. Installation was unnecessarily difficult, but not for any fault of the product. A few months ago I had an oil change and a tire rotation done at a dealer (a big no no, but I had a good coupon). I had successfully installed the front two tires, but on the third my lug nut lock key shredded. As a result I had to take the remaining two wheels to a Discount Tire for installation. Apparently the Dealership had tightened the locking lug to 140 ft/lbs. After giving the dealer an earful, it ended up costing an extra $14 to destroy the lock and install the wheels. What probably should have been a couple hours became a whole evening and a morning.Helpful (10)
