Review & Install 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.

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.

265/35-18 Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Tire. Sumitomo's HTR Z II series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire. The aggressively designed tire delivers extraordinary performance in either wet or dry conditions, on and off the track. The HTR Z II Series Tires also feature a unique flanged lip on the lower sidewall that helps protect your expensive rims from curb damage while parallel parking.

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!

Application. This Standard 18" Black Machined FR500 and Sumitomo Tire Kit fits all 1994 to 1998 Mustangs.

Road Hazard Protection. AmericanMuscle is proud to offer an optional Road Hazard Tire Protection program to our customers who purchase a Wheel and Tire Package from us. With this program, you will receive a 3-Year/36 Month protection plan for changing of flat tires and flat tire repair.

36 Months of Protection. The Road Hazard Protection Program is good for 3-Years (36 Months) from the purchase date printed on the program certificate or until any part of the tire tread that comes in contact with the road has a tread depth of 2/32” or less, whichever comes first.

Flat Tire Changing Assistance. Enrolled customers are eligible for reimbursement of up to $75 for roadside flat changing assistance provided by a licensed service provider. This is limited to the roadside installation of the customer’s own usable spare tire. Customer must have a spare tire. The customer would pay the service provider for flat tire changing and then be reimbursed.

Flat Tire Repair. Enrolled customers are eligible for Flat Tire Repair up to $20 per tire. This repair would include labor and patch. Reimbursement is limited to two flat tire repair claims during the coverage terms of 3-Years/36 months. The customer would pay the service provider for flat tire repair and then be reimbursed.

Fitment: 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 Details

I have a red 99 GT, stock height and I wanted the staggered 18s but I cant tell from the pictures if the rear 18x10s made a big difference on the tire width or would the 17x10.5 give it more of a muscle look.

  • 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.

Recalibrate Speedometer? I'm currently using the stock wheels on my 2004. If i got these wheels, would I need to recalibrate my speedometer?

  • No you will not need to recalibrate. The tires are the same overall height so it will not mess with the speedometer.

switching from 17 to 18 in wheels what are the ups and downs of going from 17 to 18 inch wheels on my 2004 Mustang?

Iamscfastgun

  • 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.

    Wheels and tires fit perfectly. I had the car lowered two inches in the front and an inch and a half in the rear. The 18x9/10's went on with no problems at all. A really good look compared to the original factory wheels.

    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.

    Review from Staggered FR500 Style Black Machined Wheel & NITTO Tire Kit - 18x9/10 (99-04 All)

    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.

    Like a Cadillac

    The wheels completely changed the look of my mustang. I would recommend these wheels over the chrome. The black machined is shiny and stands out, but is not overbearing in my opinion. They turn a lot of heads and I recieve a lot of complements on them. As for the tires, the difference is like night and day from my old ones. I can hardly feel bumps in the road. The only issue I had was I had to get spacers for the wheels because they would grind when I would back up and cut the wheel.

    these wheels are hot!

    ordered the 18x9/10 setup with summitomo tires.This product didnt recieve full stars all around for the following reason,The front wheels (even though they are specified for 94-04 applications) hit the front brake caliper brackets.I had to grind down the caliper brackets to fit the wheels properly.Another flaw with the wheels is the black painted section on the hub of wheel where the lugnuts go was not fully painted.All in all its a great deal,even though there were a couple of snags.

    On Another Level

    I love my new combo! The FR500 wheels have the finish that I love. I like chrome but its too shiny and I dont care for polished aluminum. I found this combo and was estatic because it has the machined finish which I think is best because its clean and catches your eye. Its just enough shine to attract attention and the tires are phenomenal. I went through the gears and usually roast first and second, but with the Nittos she gripped right at launch and when I snatched second she chirped and kept moving!. This is what I was looking for and any Mustang owner would do themselves an injustice if they didnt get this combo package! It is worth every penny I paid for it!
