- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey Justin here with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out Forgestar’s F15 monoblock wheels, available in your choice of either matte black, gun metal, piano black, and silver, fitting all 2005 and newer Mustangs. At first glance you can see the design of the F14 Is more of a multispoke mesh wheel design, which has become extremely popular with the Mustang crowd as of late, which is course due to cars such as the RTR and the 2013 GT 500, both of which sport a variation of the mesh wheel design. These monoblock or one piece aluminum wheels go through an advanced process during production called rotary forging, this greatly improves the strength of the wheel, specifically the barrel, and generally reduces the weight of the wheel itself. The F14’s are offered in a wide variety of sizing options including an 18, 19, and 20 inch diameter, and in 9, 10, and 11 inch widths. Because there are a few different width options available, you can easily achieve that classic staggered look, by sticking a wider rear wheel and tire in the back versus the front, which in my opinion is the only way to roll. Chances are if you’re buying new wheels, you’re going to need new tires, we offer a pre built combinations, where we pair your F14’s up with some of the top tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your car without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. Of course you can also take advantage of our free mounting and balancing, free shipping and handling. Finally, all Forgestar wheels are backed by a lifetime structural warranty. When it does come time to install your new wheels just grab a floor jack and some basic hand tools. You’ll want to crack the lugs loose first on the stock wheels before getting the car in the air, after you do that, jack the car up and swap the 4 wheels and tires. Doesn’t get a lot easier than this, but since there is a little work involved, we’ll call it an hour from start to finish. So if you’re looking to take a break from the standard 5 spoke wheel and you want to go with a more modern multispoke mesh wheel design, then be sure to check out these quality lightweight aluminum wheels from Forgestar available right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Exactly what I pictured!
I searched for days, weeks, and months through web page after web page looking for the perfect wheel to complement my new 2014 until I settled on this set. Man am I happy I went with these. Got the piano black and they went just perfect with my black 5.0.Helpful (13)

These rims look badass on my 5.0. I did a good thing on getting this after all.Helpful (11)
Hello, i have GT500 2008. Can i fit this wheel (front) on my stock bremboo calipers? And what about BIG brakes btw?
Yes, this will clear front GT500 calipers, and big brake kits with the same size calipers.
I know you guys have a new set for 2015-2018 mustangs, but I need to know: Will these fit a 2015 mustang gt non-performance pack. It doesn't have brembo brakes, but not sure if these wheels will clear the base gt brakes.
The Staggered Forgestar F14 Monoblock Piano Black Wheel & NITTO INVO Tire Kit that we have for the 2015-2018 Mustang will clear the base model GT brakes. Here is the link to the kit we have for your year Mustang: https://www.americanmuscle.com/pianoblackforgestarf14-20in-1516-nittoinvo-stag.html.
do i have to install new suspension / coilovers or bigger brakes with 20" wheels? i heard that 20" make the ride a bit stiffer and will compromise performance and tires without modifications.
No. I have both a set of 20"s and a set of 17"s and you do not need to change anything to fit them. The ride comfort, it depends on the tire you get and the profile. it will be a little stiffer on bumps with the 20"s due to low profle tires however, it is WELL WORTH all the extra looks from the bigger rims. If you do plan to put lowering springs on in the future keep in mind it might rub the tires so you may wish to go with a nice set of 18"s or 19"s so there is no clearance issue. However i love having 20"s and would choose to get them again and again.
