    Hey, I'm Justin with I'm checking out the new 551C wheels from MMD, fitting all 2005 to 2014 Mustangs, available in your choice of either silver, charcoal, or matte black. The 551C is the first wheel to debut from industry leading appearance brand MMD. Now if you guys didn't know by now, MMD's number one priority is to separate your ride from the rest, thanks to their wide variety of unique styling accessories designed specifically for the mustang. Now, if you guys want to check out more cool parts from MMD including future wheel releases, just click on our banner below to subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven't done so already. AS you can see, the 551C features that modern flat, five-spoke, concave design that has become wildly popular with the S197 crowd as of late. As I mentioned at the beginning of this video, you do have a few different choices when it comes to color. Project MMD behind me is sporting the charcoal 551C's while our project Coyote 2014 GT is sporting the matte black version. Finally, our 2005 V6 on the dynojet is rocking the MMD wheels in silver. Sizing-wise the 551C wheels are offered in both 19 and 20-inch diameters and widths of 8 1/2 and 10 inches. Now as I mentioned in all of our wheels vids, the different widths do give you a couple of different options. For one, you can go with the tried and true staggered fitment, and stick a wider wheel and tire in the rear like project MMD. Or if you want you can go with a square or standard fitment, meaning you have the same width, wheel and tire on all four corners, and it does give you the ability to rotate those tires in the future. The MMD wheels are available separately if you'd like, however if you're going to need some new rubber to go along with these new wheels, why don't let us do all of the work for you? We do offer a few pre-built tires and wheel kits that pair your new 551C wheels up with some of the top performing tires on the market today in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your Mustang without rubbing, even if you lower it an inch or two. On top of that, you do get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing and our free shipping and handling. If you guys want to learn more about these pre-assembled tire and wheel kits, and you're not watching this video on our site already, well then just click on the link below to head back to the product page at Installing a new set of wheels and tires onto your ride has to be one of the easier mods to tackle, and can be accomplished in about an hour using some basic hand tools. You want to first crack the lugs loose on the ground, before you jack the car up. Once the car's in the air, go ahead and swap out all four wheels and tires, tighten those lugs, and you should be good to go. Now, if you do have any questions about the install itself or about the actual 551C wheels, do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our Mustang experts by phone or by email. So, if you're looking for a very popular wheel design that is sure to turn a few heads on the street or at your next show, then check out the 551C wheels by MMD available right here at

    MMD 551C. Add sleek race inspired styling to your late model S197 Mustang with a set of Modern Muscle Design's 551C wheels. Featuring a concave flat five spoke design the MMD 551C is the perfect wheel for use on the street, strip or track.

    Matte Charcoal Finish. Completed in a dark charcoal hue that is lighter than the standard "Henry Ford" black, this MMD wheel features a modern matte finish for a stealthy appearance, with the added benefit of never noticing brake dust.

    Application. This Modern Muscle Design 551C Wheel fits the front or rear of all 2005-2009 Ford Mustangs. Stagger with 20x10 on the rear for an aggressive muscle car stance and improved traction.

        How good are the sumitumo tires ?

        • Sumitomo tires are a great brand to go with. I currently have them on my Mustang and have no complaints. They have no road noise and great wet and dry traction.

            Makes My GT Feel New Again!!!!

            I have lowered my GT a 1.5" all the way around with the Ford Racing lowering springs. I love the 5 star look and these rims are incredibly light weight. It definitely brings a breath of fresh air to my 2010 Mustang GT. I honestly believe I could have went 2" all the way around and still would have had plenty of wheel clearance. If I had to complain about anything it would be that the paint seems to chip somewhat easily. Meaning after just putting my center caps on after install, caused the paint to rub off some. Other than that I'm completely satisfied with this purchase. Lastly the tires, the Sumitomo 285/30's in the rear (side walls) are slightly smaller than the front 255/35's but the rear is a wider tire so I kind of expected that. If the rear side wall was 285/35/20 it would probably look perfect but nonetheless it looks really good at the current setup!!!!

            WOW!! Makes my Mustang look so much better!!

            These wheels and tires are amazing!! Super fast shipping and super easy to install. Only problem I ran into was they weren't balanced correctly, so I had to take it to the shop to get it balanced correctly. They were close though. If you're hesitant to get them, DONT HESITATE!! They are worth every penny and they look amazing! I have my car lowered 1.5in and it completed the look I was looking for. The charcoal color really complements my black mustang and the Nitto tires really make it stick to the road! A must have!

            Completely Changed the Look of My Car

            I had been looking at these wheels for years and finally got them! I had them custom powder coated in a color of my choosing (slightly different than the charcoal they came in) but even the charcoal that I ordered them in looked awesome! My Mustang is slammed on coilovers and I have no issues with rubbing the coils thanks to the offset being perfect! These wheel completely changed the stance and look of my car and I get tons of compliments on them! I highly recommend these wheels.

            Great setup... But...

            I bought this setup for my 2013 in silver. Looks amazing on the car. The Mickey Thompson Street Comp Ultra High Performance tire looks fantastic on the car. Two things everyone should know before buying. The Mickey Thompson Street Comp Ultra High Performance tire is a summer tire. They can be a bit slick in cold and wet weather. In warm weather they stick to the road like glue. Also, The MMD wheel has a lip that extends out past the tire. If you bump a curb your going to chew up the wheel. If I had known that I might not have bought them. I am really happy with the set. AM was great to work with and you will love the look of these wheels on your stang.

            The rim looks great not too dark not too light the MT's are awesome too really helped with traction instead of just sliding the most I get is chirping through gears. My stang has 3.73 gears, airaid cai, straight pipe, and bama 93 race tune.

            Package is good, but not great

            Love the wheels and the tires themselves, however be warned that the rear tire in the package size is noticeably shorter than the front, and could also be wider so that the tire did not balloon out from the tread to the rim sides, this goes for front and rear. I'm already planning on getting different size tires pretty soon to get the look/performance I want. My car has a Roush supercharger on it and will still easily blow these 285's off in first through third. AM crew was good to work with, transaction went well, just wish the tires were fitted a little more appropriately in the package. I recommend this package if you get the correct sized tires.

            Looks better in person

            These rims look sick on my black 14 5.0. They have that nice concave look. The only thing is that I should have ordered the taller rear tires. The front come in taller than the back. Other than my own fault for not looking at the tire sizes. Everything looks great,and rides good,Especially with a 1.5in drop all the way around.
