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.

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!

B/A Looking Rims
These look super on my ruby red 2014 GT500! Tires are a little noisier than stock, but I can live with it. Speedometer change compared to stock tire size is not enough to mess with.Helpful (14)

Most Beautiful Wheels Possible
These are the most beautiful wheels anyone could possibly put on their Mustang. Not to mention, the amount of rubber on the road is amazing for traction and control. The 11" wides on the back really grip and let you know that your beast is ready to go. I could not be happier with the quality and look of these wheels.Helpful (13)

They look ridiculously awesome and preform great. The overall appearance really changes and just makes the car look around different and more aggressive.Helpful (14)

Shelby CS1 Wheels
The Shelby CS1 wheels are a true head turner, the look is amazing and photos do not do these wheels any justice, these wheels are what you need to look at in person. Had no issue with putting a 295/35ZR20 Michelin Pilot Super Sport tire on the rear with these 20x11 CS1 wheels, no rubbing issues, no clearance issues.These wheels are heavy compared to most other aftermarket wheels but these do clear the big brake package like Brembo, Wilwood, Shelby Extreme brakes. Many compliments on the wheels while at a red light or parked in a parking lot. They look fanstatic on my Shelby GT500 convertible 2012. I purchased the CS1 20x9 wheels for the front and 20X11 for the rear. I currently have 275/35ZR20 tires mounted on the 20x9 CS1 wheels and 295/35ZR20 tires mounted on the 20x11. You can go up to a 305 without any issues and some people have used a 315 on the rears depending on if the car has been lowered or not but just be sure you have an adjustable panhard bar installed to center up the rear.Helpful (18)

great looking big wheel
some how the rear wheels showed before the fronts and they were damaged. Called AM and they sent two more wheels out that day. When everything got to the house and in good order i loaded them up and off to the tire shop. they said the 20x11 for the back would not fit. i called AM and they assured me they would so i told the shop to try it. i also told them that i have heard that in the air they look like they won't fit but once on the ground they are fine. so they did and it worked.Helpful (14)

Looking great on a Sterling Silver 2011 GT
The wheels were delivered by UPS in perfect condition and on time. No complaints whatsoever about this part. I was able to swap the new tires in myself, however the first surprise was that the OEM lug nut wrench you have in your trunk did not work on these rims! The reason is that these CS1 rims have the nuts recessed and the OEM lug nut wrench has a socket wall that is way too thick - it won't fit. You will have to have (or buy) a 21 mm socket and lug use that instead. You can buy everything you need from a hardware store, just don't get caught without one in the trunk! I checked the pressure at Les Schwab and they were set to 44PSI on the front and 41PSI at the rear, so good job American Muscle for properly inflating these. I don't have a definite verdict in terms of balancing these wheels yet - it seems that I have some vibration in the steering wheel at speeds of 80mph or higher. Also, I was not able to retrain the wheels with the car's computer to this date. The TPMS tool I purchased from American Muscle just doesn't work. I am setting my 2011 GT car computer in the training mode without fail or problem, but the TPMS tool it is not working (though the LED light comes on). I will follow up with American Muscle reps about this issue, but so far I have been unsuccessful. It is interesting and perhaps weird that it took the car computer two weeks to realize that there were new wheels installed on the car and give me the "tire sensor fault" error. I tried retraining the wheels at this time as well, making sure that I am miles away from the OEM wheels, and the TPMS tools still doesn't work.Helpful (11)

gunmetal shelby CS1 20X9 20X11
I am very happy with shelby wheels.They look fanstatic on my GT convertible 2012. Eleven inches wheels wide on the back, the look is very aggressive. (tires=255/30/20, 295/30/20 lHelpful (13)
Will there be rubbing issues with a 1.75" drop Front and 2" in the back with and this wheel/tire setup? I dropped the vehicle 1.75 inches in the front, 2" in the back.
As long as the car is not dropped more than 2" you should not have any rubbing or fitment issues.
how does the stagared 20" wheels preform on the track 2011 GT 500 SVT package stock 19X265X40 20X285X35 Wheels and tires Will these rub on the track
Clearance issues? Any clearance issues with the Eibach Springs Pro-System Plus Suspension Kit?
No you will not have a problem with that system I have a 2007 mustang gt with 20x9 255/35/20 front and rear 20x11 295/35/20 and so far no problem one thing to keep in mind you will need to push up on the axle on order for the rear wheels to fit or else the they will hit the bump stop bracket to get a better idea check out my car In the pictures its the red one with the hood pins
Will this wheel package work with the Ford handling pack that will have a 1 inch drop over stock?
yes this will work.. once installed you will still have about a 2 inch gap between the top of tire and lip of wheel well.. The low pros help a lot with this clearance issue. As long as you dont mind having the thinner walled tire you will be fine.. Ordering myself a set soon and also have the Ford racing handling pack for my 2013 GT. Now my answer is that of the GT coupe. I am unsure of the wheel clearance on the convertible model if there is any difference in wheel well size, but i would be almost positive that saying wheel well on both convertible and coupe models are the same. Definately a good combo and the look is very aggressive and sporty. Good luck with everything you have planned for your pony and safe ventures!
Will it fit if you have Brembo brakes? Will the rims fit if u have Brembo brakes. And do you have to do any additional work to the rear because the tires are so wide?
