- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey everybody Dave with AmericanMuscle.com and I am here with one of the more popular wheel styles for the 2005 and newer Mustang. I have the American Muscle Saleen style wheel. These wheels are designed to look just like the 5 star Saleen wheels seen on the cars over the years, our Saleens would definitely set you off from the pack and they’re available in an 18” diameter. You can get them in a chrome, a black, and a matte black finish. They’re available in an 18x9 and an 18x10, giving you the option to go with the old school staggered setup, or a non staggered fitment. No matter what wheel size, style or finish you decide, one thing we guarantee you is that wheel is going to look and function perfectly, and American Muscle offers you a 1 year finish and a lifetime structural warranty on all of our wheels. You can buy the wheels separate, but we offer you pre packaged tire and wheel combos, where we take your wheel and pair it up with some of the best performing tires on the market. And by sticking with a wheel and tire combo, it’s going to go ahead and take the hassle out of buying wheels and tires that fit right, and it’s going to guarantee you perfect fitment on your Mustang, even if it’s been lowered up to 2”. We’re also going to go ahead and ship these to your house for free, we’ll mount and balance them for free, and for all you customers with a 2007 and up Mustangs, don’t forget to pick up your TPMS sensors when ordering your wheels. Once the wheels and tires arrive they’re ready to install right out of the box, you’re just going to want to go ahead and crack the lug nuts loose with the car on the ground, and then secure the car, jack the car up and finish removing your lug nuts and your old wheel and tire, take the new Saleen, slide her right in place, lower it and tighten it, and you’re good to go. All in all you’re looking at about an hour to install. If the looks you’re after are that of the clean, race inspired Saleen Mustang, then you’re definitely going to want to pick up a set of the American Muscle 5 star style Saleen wheel for the 2005 and up Mustangs.

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!

I get so many compliments on these rims. Going to buy an extra set of them with the Toyo's to run drag radials on. Finish is perfect.Helpful (0)

Exactly what I was after. Simple, easy to clean, wider, matte black rims with wider, stickier rubber. I bought my Stang used and it had Nexen N5000 Plus tires. The Sumitomos are MUCH stickier, taking greater effort to break loose. The Nexens feel like plastic compared to these. The wider tires with the matte rims look great with my black car. Bought red lug nuts for a small, but noticeable accent. The TPMS sensors paired instantly with no issues, so I'm not sure why people are having difficulties. I am far from mechanically inclined, but I can follow instructions. Took about 1.5 hrs, taking my time and torquing the lug nuts to proper spec.Helpful (0)

Less traction than stock wheels and tires.
I really like the look of the rims. I had hoped that since the tires were wider (275 vrs 245 stock) that my traction/60 ft times would improve. It was slightly worse. Also the included lug nuts are very poor quality. After 10k miles one tire seems to be defected. I will never buy these tires again.Helpful (10)

Rims are great tires are good for the price
Looks great and clean. One of the rear tires had a hard spot and after getting an alignment for raising the car, to make everything clear, the car had wheel wobble from it. After wearing it down it drives smooth now. Great grip as wellHelpful (8)

Looks like new car
Very impressed with the way they look on my car. The only thing is that after I installed them and put about 75 miles on them the TPS light came on and won't clear. I would highly recommend these wheels if you want lots of compliments on your car.Helpful (10)

Awesome look for blacked out Mustang. Great price and quality.Helpful (9)
Will these rims mount onto my stock tires? After looking in the door jam of my car I read that both the front and rear stock rim sizes are (10 x 8.OJ). I have no idea what the OJ stands for, but I was wondering if these 10 x 9's would even mount on the stock tires?
We don't recommend mounting these 18x9 wheels on your 18x8 stock tires. Your 2012 stock tires should be a 235/50-18 due to the narrower wheel. With this Saleen wheel being 18x9, you should upgrade to the best fitting tire, which is the 255/45-18. If you have any other questions, please give our Experts a call! They'd be happy to help!
I just got my set delivered. I can't find the torque specs for this. Can you please tell me the exact specifications? Or where I can find it? Please and thank you
The lug nuts should be torqued the same as the factory spec. That can be found in your owners manual.
What is the offset on this 18x9?
This Saleen Style Matte Black Wheel has an offset of +30mm.
Are these the best tire kit for extreme hot weather?
If you are looking at the high performance tires, these will be the best in hot weather as these will not heat up and have the same degradation as others that we sell. In those conditions, these may be the best option for you.
Will these fit on a 2015 mustang gt?
This Saleen Style Matte Black Wheel is designed with the proper offset and backspacing to mount to a 2005 to 2014 Mustang GT. This will not fit properly on a 2015 and newer Mustang.
Simple installation for anyone.
