Popular Tire Setups for this Wheel
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.

When will item 33974 be back in stock?
This wheel and tire kit has an ETA of 1-2 weeks.
I am currently having an issue with some shacking going on due to the wider tires im guessing, are these universal rims or do i need to buy wheel hub centric rings to get it to stop shaking around 60 to 70 mph? Thanks
The FR500 Style wheels are manufactured hub-centric so no aftermarket rings are required for fitment. If you are experiencing any type of shaking/vibration, you may potentially have an issue with the balancing on your tire which is causing it to rotate uneven. If that is the case, we recommend reaching having a professional tire shop having the balance of the tire checked.

What is the offset of these wheels?
The offset of these FR500 wheels is +30mm
Hi, I would go with the Staggered FR500 Style Black Machined Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit 17x9/10.5 Item #33964 to get a better stance,the 18x9/10 has two tires that are closer in width and almost look uniform in size.
No you will not need to recalibrate. The tires are the same overall height so it will not mess with the speedometer.
It's all preference really. 18's look nice, but if you don't lower your car, it puts the car at an awkward stance having bigger wheels. You restrict the tire width you can run once you increase your rim size.
Simple installation for anyone.
