- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out the Forgestar CF10 monoblock wheels, available in textured matte black, gunmetal, or piano black, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. As you can see the CF10 is a pretty traditional design as far as muscle car wheels go, the 10 in CF10 refers to the number of spokes, and the wheels themselves do sport a little bit of concave. I will admit I was a little apprehensive as to how a multispoke wheel would look on these Mustangs but seeing it here in person, I have to say I am a fan. If you didn’t know, all Forgestar wheels go through an advanced process during production, known as rotary forging, not only does this only reduce the weight versus a cast wheel, but they’re also significantly stronger. In addition the monoblock or one piece design further increases the strength while keeping the weight down. The CF10’s are only offered in a 19” diameter but they are available in both a 9 and 10 inch width. Because of the different width options you can easily achieve that staggered look, by sticking the 10” wheels in the read, and the 9’s up front. Or you can go with the same width wheels on all 4 corners which will give you the standard fitment, and will allow you to properly rotate your tires in the future. To give you a better idea of how these wheels might look on your own ride, we outfitted some of the cars here in the shop with every color. Starting with our 2013 GT behind me which is equipped with the Piano black option, our 2005 V6 back there on the lift is equipped with the textured matte black version, while our 2010 on the Dyno is sporting the CF10’s in gunmetal. Chances are if you’re picking up new wheels, you’re going to need new tires, we do offer a few tire and wheel combinations, where your CF10’s are paired up with the top performing tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your ride 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. Finally, all Forgestar wheels are backed by a lifetime structural 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, after that jack the car up and swap 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. If the more traditional design of Forgestar CF5s or F14 wheels aren’t modern enough for you, then you’ll want to check out these ultramodern multi spoke CF10s, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com
