Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a look at our race inspired FR500 wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs. These wheels are inspired by the factory built turnkey racecar the Ford Mustang FR500. Now these cars were built for one sole purpose: to be all out track monsters using beefed up suspension, and a slightly more radical engine. Now the styling of these wheels is drawn from the more aggressive racecar appearance that differentiated these models from their road going counterparts. Our FR500 wheels are available in both 17 and 18” diameters, and your choice of either black, black chrome, anthracite silver, or chrome finish. Now you can buy these wheels individually if you like, however the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, that pair your new FR500 wheels up with some of the better 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. Not only that you get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, free mounting and balancing, and optional nitrogen fill. Now the wheels are available in both staggered and non staggered fitment and with the always cool deep dish feature. Now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, this means that the face of the rim is set further back from the rim, resulting in a nice thick lip which looks very cool. As I mentioned before you can get the wheels in a staggered fitment which simply means your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts giving you that classic muscle car look. That’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me, got the black 18x9’s up front, and as you can see we’ve got the black 18x10’s out back, giving us that really tough stance. This will also help our traction as well, thanks to the fact that we get to run a slightly wider rear tire, helping us get that power down to the ground. To give you an idea of what some of the different finishes look like we’ve equipped our 98 GT on the lift there with a set of anthracite silver FR500’s. Next to that on our Dynojet we have our 2000 GT, sporting the very sharp chrome finish. Whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured knowing that we here at AmericanMuscle have your back with a 1 year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. When you receive your new set of wheels from AmericanMuscle you’ll find that installing them is as easy as ordering them, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first while your car is still on the ground, then jack the car up and swap the wheels. Doing all of that takes you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. If you’re a fan of racecar styling and you want your ride to be inspired by a true purpose built racecar, then you’ll definitely want to check out a set of our FR500 wheels for your Mustang.

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!

Installed on a 1995 Ford Mustang Gt with Maximum Motorsports Coil Overs and Control Arms Front and Rear (factory offset). Clearance on the Coil overs with the 17x9s and 275s is very very close. Wheels and tires look great and bolted right on. Wish there was a machined steel without the black insert option but still happy with how it looks.Helpful (0)

Great set of wheels
Excellent set of wheels without spending an arm and a legHelpful (6)
What is the backspacing and offset for these, im looking to put 275/40r17 nt05s on these on the rear of my 2012 gt
The backspacing for this wheel is 6.2" (158mm) and the offset is +30mm (1.2").
These came with black center caps and I want to match the center caps to the metal/silver on the wheel just for another look. What center caps will be a match? Brushed? Silver? Thanks for your help, American Muscle really is a great place for all stang parts!!
My current rims are 16x7 will 17x9 fit?
These will work just fine yes.
Will these fit on a 2000 v6 base model mustang
The Staggered 17x9/10.5 FR500 Style Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit will fit the 2000 V6 Mustang.
I have a 1996 Mustang Gt, I currently have a 315 size tire on the rear , will these FR 500 Black Machined Wheels fit my car?
Yes, this wheel will fit on your 1996 Mustang GT without an issue but if you want to keep the same 315 tire size in the rear, you will need a wider wheel than a 9" wheel. We would recommend a 10.5" wide wheel to accommodatea 315 tire.
The FR500 Style Black Machined Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will be the HTR Z tires.
With 275/40R17s on all four 17x9 FR500 Black Machined wheels, your cost would be $996.72. However , we cannot guarantee that those wider tires will clear on your mustang.
Hello! The thing that throws off the calibration is the rolling diameter, so you must factor in tire size as well. When going with a rear wheel that large, I would almost definitely say you will want to calibrate your speedometer.
Unfortunately, this kit is only designed for the 99-04 model Mustangs. We do offer the FR500 wheels for your 96 GT. They can be found by following the link below. http://www.americanmuscle.com/94-98-mustang-wheels-rims.html#shop-by2
The 17x10.5 wheel is deep dish.
The Staggered FR500 Style Black Machined Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit - 17x9/10.5 (99-04 All) will have the same bolt pattern however these are designed to have the correct offset and back spacing for a 99-04. You would need to test fit these on your 2013.
Absolutely not!!!! I have 18's on mine and get lots of compliments!! Looks awesome!
Yes, definitely. You can use a 245/45-17 tire on these wheels without any problems.
These wheels weight between 21 and 22 lbs using the stand on the scale, then stand on the scale with the wheel method.
Simple installation for anyone.
