- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone, I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a look at our AmericanMuscle GT500 Style Wheels for your 2005 and up Mustang. GT500’s have always been one of the baddest Mustangs on the block and now your ride can enjoy the stylings of the 2010 GT500, thanks to these split 5-spoke wheels. The wheels are available with 3 different finishes, including a black painted finish, a triple dipped chrome finish, or a black machined finish. As for the sizes, the wheels are available in either an 18” diameter with an 8 inch front and 9 inch rear, or a 19” diameter with an 8.5 inch front and a 10 inch rear. Staggered fitment is cool for a couple of different reasons. First off, it looks awesome. A wider rear wheel not only improves your stance, but also helps get that power down to the ground thanks to the wider rear tire and contact patch. Not only that, it also makes for more responsive handling as well, thanks to the narrow front tire. It’s a win-win. Now, you can purchase these wheels without tires if you want; however, the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our wheel and tire combos that pair your new GT500 style wheels up with some of the better performing tires on the market today in sizes that are guaranteed to fit without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. Not only that, you also get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, free mounting and balancing, and optional nitrogen fill. Remember, you 2007 and up folks have to keep in mind your vehicles are equipped with a TPMS sensor. This means a tire pressure monitoring system that needs to be addressed when ordering new wheels. These aluminum AM wheels are extremely durable, but if you ever encounter any problems, every rim features a lifetime structural warranty, as well as a one year warranty on finish, you can’t beat that. There are very few mods on the market today that can change the attitude of any ride like a new set of shoes. These AmericanMuscle wheels are sure to offer the modern aggressive stylings that look great on any Mustang.

Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive.
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!

New GT500 rims
The wheels in appearance are awesome, they give the car a sharp aggressive look. But it would have been nice to have had a advisement that the stock lugs and star wrench wouldn't fit into the lug holes on the rims so I ordered new lugs and found a thin wall impact socket to install them proper.Helpful (10)

These wheels greatly improved the appearance of my Mustang and they were easy to install. The only issue that I ran into was that the rear wheels were horribly out of balance. Both wheels were more then five ounces out of balance which caused the whole car to shake. Once this issue was fixed, the wheels worked properly. The brushed silver portion of the wheel does scratch easily and was probably done while I was trying to figure out the balance problem. These wheels also have smaller holes for the lugs which does not allow you to use the factory lug wrench. I bought 1/2 inch lugs with a key that does accommodate the factory lug wrench. Very pleased overall.Helpful (13)

New shoes for the 'stang!!
I originally had purchased the Laguna Seca wheels and with the Pirelli tires but due to an issue with availability I changed to the GT500 style black machined wheel and Nitto invo tire kit. Definitely happy with the results. The staggered wheels and tires gave the 'stang a much more aggressive look. Quality rims and quality tires, would definitely recommend these.Helpful (13)

Online photos don't do justice to this package
I thought these wheels and tires looked good online but wow when I saw them for real!!!!! These are not the most expensive wheels but they definitely rank up there as some of the best looking. After install I drove on highway at speeds +/- 70 mph and no vibrations at all. A little tire noise initially but that quickly went away as the tires heated up. The TPMS was no problem at all since I also ordered the install monitor and using the CD made it easy. I have spinal problems so had to have shop install the package and my Mustang drew a crowd of mechanics and other customers that gathered to admire the car. This package isn't for everyone but it's definitely right for me and my 2014Helpful (14)
Will these rims clear the 2013 Brembo brake package?
The Staggered 2010 GT500 Style Black Machined Wheel & Pirelli Tire Kit - 19x8.5/10 (05-14 All) will clear the Ford Racing Brembo 6-Piston Brake Upgrade Kit - 15 in. Rotor (05-14 GT, Bullitt, Boss, GT500) item #50518 http://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-6piston-brake-kit-0514.html
I have 1 1/2 " lowering springs on my 2011 GT. Will I have a problem with tires rubbing?
These wheels and tires will not cause rubbing issues as we guarantee fitment of wheel and tire kits upwards of a 2" drop.
Besides the center caps that come with these wheels, do OEM centers fit and if not what other centers will fit?
OEM center caps will not fit these wheels. Any American Muscle branded caps will fit.
What is the diameter of the center caps?
The diameter of the center caps for the Staggered 2010 GT500 Style Black Machined Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit - 19x8.5/10 (05-14 All) is going to be 2.5".
Is it possible to paint the black area to match the car? The reason Iask this is I don't know if the black is power coat or paint. I've been told not to paint over power coat (if it is power coated) as the paint would peel off, and vis versa, that I can paint over power coat. So I thought I'd ask the experts.
Either way paint or powder coated i would strip the color off before applying more for the longevity of the color you want to make them.
Yes they will. I have the Shelby front Brembo's and they clear just fine.
Simple installation for anyone.
