    Review & Installation Video

    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.

    Description

    Easy "One Click" Shopping. We have combined our most popular wheels and tires together into an easy "one click" to buy combo kit. This combo kit features four wheels and tires that are the exact specifications for your year Mustang for a guaranteed perfect fit with no rubbing or clearance issues.

    Standard Wheel and Tire Setup. Our Standard wheel and tire combo kit uses the same size wheels and tires on the front and the rear which allows you to routinely rotate your tires to equalize tread wear and maximize the life of the tires.

    Black Machined FR500 Wheel. Now you can have the modern split "Y" spoke styling of the FR500 Mustang for your very own Pony. These FR500 rims look like they're tearing up the track, even when just sitting in your garage. The velvet smooth look of the machined aluminum face makes for an intense contrast against the black inlays on this wheel for an incredibly sharp presentation. These machined wheels feature a satin clear-coat finish to protect against the hazards of road chips and pitting.

    275/40-17 Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z Tire The HTR Z Series is Sumitomo's Ultra High Performance summer tire. The aggressively designed 275/40-17 tire delivers confident performance in either wet or dry conditions, both on and off the track. Improved steering response and overall handling without sacrificing ride comfort. In addition to excellent performance, the HTR Z series tires deliver a smooth ride with minimal road noise.

    Free Nitrogen Fill. AmericanMuscle is proud to bring you the option to fill your tires with pure nitrogen for FREE when we mount & balance your wheel and tire order. Filling your high performance tires with nitrogen can result in longer tire life and improved fuel economy. Nitrogen can also better regulate tire pressure changes that occur with the change in temperatures throughout the year, so your Stang will be ready to roll no matter what season it is!
