- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I'm excited to be bringing you our American Muscle 2013 GT500 style wheels, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs, available in your choice of either charcoal, or gloss black. Ok so we know the 2013 GT500 is pretty much the holy grail of far as Mustangs are concerned, I mean over 600+ horsepower, 200mph top speed, and that menacing front end, let's just say there's a lot to love. Once area that instantly grabbed the attention of a lot of Mustang fans was the wheels, the new for 2013 mesh design was a big hit with a lot of people, and so the demand for an affordable supercar style wheel was born. Our answer, the 2013 GT500 style wheels available in gloss black, or charcoal. These lightweight aluminum wheels feature the same 16 spoke mesh design that helped the 2013 GT500 achieve its unique aggressive look. As you can see our wheels do feature a little bit of dish or concave, flaring out from the lugholes to that flangelesss style lip, to give the wheels themselves a little more depth and character. As for the sizing, the GT500 style wheels are offered in either an 18, or 19" diameter, and in widths ranging from 8 to 10 inches. You all know the deal by now, stick a wider tire and wheel in the rear, and you'll have the staggered fitment, just like the 2013 GT500. Or on the other hand, if you want to retain the ability to properly rotate your tires in the future, then the standard fitment may be the better option, just stick the same width tire and wheel on all 4 corners, and you should be good to go. You can purchase these wheels by themselves if you like, however if you need some new rubber to go along with your new wheels, why not let us do all the work for you? We do offer a couple of different tire and wheel combinations, where we pair your new GT500's up with some of the top brand tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your Mustang without rubbing, even if you're lowered an inch or two. On top of that you get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, and free shipping and handling. Finally, all AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a one year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. If you've never installed a set of tires and wheels before, don't worry it couldn't get any easier, all you need is some basic hand tools and a floor jack. Go ahead and crack those lugs loose first before you get the car in the air, once you've jacked the car out simply swap out all 4 wheels and tires and that's it, doing all this should only take you about an hour from start to finish. Even though the 2013 GT500 wheel may be a little radical for some of the traditionalists out there, there's no denying the modern mesh design looks great on the S197, and now your Mustang can share the same supercar styling, thanks to our GT500 style wheels available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Did not fit
Ordered a set 20x10 and 20x8.5 set did not match color wise, called reps promised warehouse manager would open boxes to make sure replacement set matched, got replacement and they 3 matched 1 didn't. Didn't realize until started putting them on car, 20x8.5s did not even fit over the hub. Bad paint matching mixed with horrible fitment, last time I try to order wheels from amHelpful (10)

Great wheels for platforms other than Mustangs
Purchased these for my 2013 Taurus SHO since they are only 0.5" wider and 9mm more offset compared to the factory 20" wheels. I loved the look of this wheel since I saw them on the Mustang and I had to have them. The only unfortunate thing is the clearcoat or paint doesn't seem very high quality. I know they are a replica, but the finish doesn't seem OEM quality. If I had opened the box before taking them to the tire shop, I would have had them powdercoated with a better clear so cleanup would be easier. I'll update with pictures once they are on the car.Helpful (12)
I just recently curbed my wheels and was wondering is there a certain paint or paint code used to fix it?
What is the widest tire you can fit on these?
The biggest tire we can confirm fitment for is a 285.
How much is the weight of this 20x8.5 wheel?
This wheel will weigh about 30 pounds.
Simple installation for anyone.
