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.

One of the best mods I r done. I was running Cobra R's before I got these, they were nice but the Machined FR500 made all the difference. I'm running 18x9 in the front with 265/35 and 18x10 deep dish with 295/35 in the back. I went with Nitto NT05 all around and it looks amazing.Helpful (7)

Great Upgrade, Doubtful about fitment, but was actually perfect.
I purchased the wheel and Nitto tire combo about six months ago after reading some of the reviews here on AM.com. A couple of reviews had stated that the fitment was not perfect in the front and that wheels spacers would be required so that the wheels would not rub the inner fender when turning, and so that the wheel itself would not touch the brake caliper bracket. (2003 Mach I) In preparation for this potential issue, I paired the wheels and tires with a set of 25mm wheel spacers from H&R for the front and rear. (Great product as well) Long story short, spacers were not necessary at all. I noticed that the wheel backing that sits flush with the wheel hub is actually tapered slightly and gives just the perfect amount of clearance so that the front wheels do not come into contact with the brake caliper bracket. It makes me wonder if AM learned of this issue and revised the design of the wheel at some point after the reviews I read were posted. The tires have fantastic grip even without heat cycling, and when inflated properly the sidewall stiffness is adequate enough to keep my car planted when I'm testing the limits of grip around corners. I'm highly satisfied with my wheels and tires, but now I have four wheel spacers that I don't need.Helpful (7)

I almost went with the black chrome fr500's but the machined face did the trick. I have a 99 gt silver and theae machine and black finish set this car off. I would reccommend to anyone who wants that wow look. Great product.Helpful (6)
