- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everyone Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at a classic Mustang wheel design and by far our most popular wheel here at AmericanMuscle, I’m referring to these Bullitt wheels for all 99-04 Mustangs. Bullitt wheels have long been the favorite of many Mustang owners everywhere, from their classic 60s muscle car styling, in addition to the factory built Ford Bullitt Mustang in 01, then again in 08 and 09, it’s easy to see why these wheels are so popular on Mustangs of all ages. Our Bullitt wheels are available in 17” 18” and 19” diameters, and your choice of either gloss black, anthracite silver, matte black, or a chrome finish. The wheels are also available in either staggered or non staggered fitment, now a staggered fitment means that your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts, giving you that classic muscle car appearance, and that’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me. We have our gloss black 17x9’s on the front, and our gloss black 17x10 ½ ‘s on the rear, giving us that really aggressive stance. Now this will also help your traction as well, thanks to the fact that you get to run a big beefy tire out back to help you get that power down to the ground. The wheels are also available with a very cool deep dish option, now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, as you can see the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim, giving you that really nice lip that’s sure to get you noticed. If you want to check out what some of the other finishes might look like on your ride, then you’ll want to check out our 98 GT back there on the lift that’s sporting the chrome finish, or our 2000 GT back there on our dyno jet, sporting the anthracite silver look. Now whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured that we have your back, with a 1 year warranty on our finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty on all wheels. Of course you can purchase 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. This pairs your new Bullitt wheels up with some of the top 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. You also get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, optional nitrogen fill, and as always free shipping and handling. Installing a new set of wheels is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first, then jack up the car and swap the wheels, start to finish should take you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. So if you want to evoke that classic muscle car styling on your modern day ride, then these Bullitt wheels from AmericanMuscle will give you an aggressive look that’s sure to never go out of style.

I purchased these wheels to replace the aging chrome "bullit" style wheels on my 04GT. The old wheels were in sad shape with peeling chrome plate and one refused to hold air. My new wheels arrived quickly and I took them to the local tire store to have the tires mounted and balanced. They balanced wheel and best of all all four hold air. These really look sharp on my ebony GT. They seem to be of good quality and run true. I'm very pleased with this purchase.Helpful (8)

The wheels look awesome on the car. They fit well. Also, We have ordered several items from American Muscle and will order from them again..Helpful (6)
Will tire size 215/55/17 fit on this rim? Thank you
We do not recommend using that small of a tire on this wheel, our recommended size is 245/45R17.
I have a 1989 mustang GT with up dated hubs with 5 lugs is the correct off set for my car ? Thanks from: Larry
These will fit your car since you have the 5 lug conversion.
Would the price change if I wanted all tierin tires? For snow and rain? Or would these tires be okay in these kinds of road conditions...?
The Sumitomo's HTR Z II series tire is an ultra high performance summer tire which will not perform well when temperatures get flow freezing and will not catch any form of traction in the snow. If this vehicle will be exposed to all forms of weather, it would not be a bad idea to consider a all-season tire which will allow a safe tread pattern for all weathers.
Will these fit my 2004 stock v6 mustang
Yes, this wheel and tire kit will fit a 2004 Mustang V6 without any issues.
What is the center cap size?
The Bullitt Matte Black Wheel uses 2.5" center caps.
The Bullitt Matte Black Wheel and Sumitomo Tire Kit will not require spacers on your 2003 V6 for proper fitment.
The Bullitt Matte Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will come mounted and balanced. You will not have to take them to a tire shop.
Hello! The Bullitt Matte Black Wheel is a +30mm offset.
He hire a private manufacturer to make our AM wheels. Unfortunately, this is the extent of the information we know so that's the best answer I can give you.
No the factory center cap did not work on these wheels.
