- 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

Perfect wheel/tire combo
The finish and overall quality of the wheels is excellent. I chose the gunmetal finish over matte black because I wanted the wheels to be a little more visible when I drive in the evening. I am very happy with the way gunmetal looks on my vapor silver car. The only drawback is the 305/35/20 drag radials are about 1.5" taller than the stock 285/40/18's. Now it feels like it takes forever to get out of 2nd gear. Will be swapping in a set of 3:73 gears.Helpful (13)

As far as appearance goes the stock wheels always leave a bit of a "MEH" feeling from the GT's, even the 19" Premium and Brembo wheels are sort of Boring. So the fix is to spring for a set of these Forgestar wheels. They look lightweight because they are and they really POP on a visual mod that also helps reduce your Mustang's unsprung weight over the OEM Wheels. I purchased a set of staggered wheels since there are not too many choices that offer an 11" inch width for the rears. And I wanted to maximize the the contact patch on my rear wheels. So I have 20 x 9.5's on front and 20 x 11's on the rear. Fitment was pretty easy... these line right up to your hub and bolt right up. The only snag I ran into was mounting the rear wheels. I had the car on a lift so the entire suspension was unsprung and the rear axle places the upper inside of the 11 inch wheel against the lower portion of the chassis where the the rear coil housing is bulged out slightly So the rear 20 x 11 wheel won't spin unless you fully torque all the lug nuts down and then the wheel just barely spins, that's how tight the clearance is.. So for the rear wheels to clear its better if you place the rear on jack stands with the suspension loaded. Then the Wheel will spin freely when mounted. Look at it this way.... You're not going to be doing flying jumps with your car so the rear should be planted and the rake and the spoilers are designed to apply constant downforce. So technically you'll never be in a situation where the wheels ever rub on the chassis. American Muscle garantees fitment. And I can say for sure...they are spot on correct. And the 11 inch wide tires look truly mean and all about serious traction.Helpful (12)
Will this wheel fit GTs with Brembo Brakes?
Flush it deep? Yes I am looking at purchasing these F14 rims but I don't see and option for the deep concave. Is that something I can order or do I have to look elsewhere? Thanks in advance for any information. Keep up the great company!
Unfortunately this Staggered Forgestar F14 Monoblock Gunmetal Wheel & NITTO INVO Tire Kit - 20x9/11 (05-14 All) does not have an option to be deep concave or not. These wheel alone are designed to have a nice deep concave look as they are. I would recommend looking at the customer photos first to see if this is the look you are going for.
