Popular Tire Sizes for this Wheel
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at our 2003 Cobra style wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs in your choice of either black or chrome. These wheels pay tribute to the terminator Cobras that originated in 2003 and are hands down my favorite modern Mustang. With that signature supercharger whine, that aggressive front end, and these 5 spoke wheels, there wasn’t much not to like. These lightweight aluminum wheels are offered in 17” diameter only, and your choice of either triple dipped chrome, gloss black finish, and for the black deep dish option, black with a polished lip. Now we have the latter installed on our 2000 GT behind me, and on our 98 GT on our Dynojet, sporting the very stealthy gloss black look. Now it’s easy to see these wheels look great on both the SN95 and the New Edge platform. But without a doubt our most popular choice is shown right behind me on our V6, with the chrome deep dish 17x9’s up front, and the 17x10.5’s in the rear, giving us that staggered look that instantly transforms our ride into full on muscle car status. Not only that, you get to run a massive 315 size tire out back, giving you all the traction you can handle. Part of the reason you’re able to run such a massive tire in the rear is due to the fact that these wheels are offered in the very cool deep dish option. Now this simply means that the face of the wheel is set further back into the rim, resulting in that nice wide lip which looks awesome. Now with some of our other American Muscle wheels you do have the option of mixing a standard fitment wheel up front with a deep dish wheel out back, however due to the design of these Cobra style wheels, you either have to go deep dish on all four corners, or standard fitment all around, it’s up to you. If you’ve never installed a new set of wheels and tires on your car, don’t worry, it couldn’t be easier. All you need is a few hand tools and a floor jack. First step is you want to make sure your car is on level ground, once you do that crack the lugs loose first, jack your car into the air and swap the wheels. That’s it, you’re done, it shouldn’t take you any more than an hour. Now obviously you can’t install these wheels without tires so you’ll definitely need to take care of that. You can always do that on your own or let us do all the work for you with one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, here we give you a couple of different tire options which are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing even if you’re lowered a little bit. You’ll even save yourself a little money in the process thanks to our free mounting and balancing and as always free shipping and handling. And with all American Muscle wheels you have peace of mind knowing that your wheels are backed by a 1 year warranty on finish, and a lifetime structural warranty as well. It’s easy to say that sometimes less is more, that’s exactly the case with these wheels, the aggressive 5 spoke design of these 2003 Cobra style wheels is sure to turn any Mustang from average to terminator in no time and they can be found right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Mounting & Balancing: AmericanMuscle offers professional mounting and balancing on all wheels and tires when purchased together on the same order. This will allow you to swap out your old wheels for your new set when they arrive.
What is TPMS? The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS for short) is a factory installed safety feature on all 2007 and newer Ford Mustangs that alerts you when your tire pressure drops to an unsafe limit.
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!

1982 Mercury Capri RS 5.0L
These rims are pretty awesome. Had too replace 2 broken rims on my current project car, Capri RS 5.0L. Got away from me drifting and smacked the drivers side against the curb. The only real complaints I have about the rims is they aren't available with different amounts of back space, ( you have to use .500" spacers to clear a coil-over setup with a 5.7" back space). And they don't offer a "Cobra" style center cap.Helpful (10)

Nice wheels just what i wanted
Fast shipping, packed great what else could you ask for.Helpful (6)
Will these wheels need spacers up front due to bearing dust cap issues pushing out the center cap?
Spacers will not be required with these wheels.
Hello, you state that "Will also fit 1979-1986 4 lug Mustangs if equipped with 87-93 front spindles" Please provide the necessary part # for the spindles needed to work with my '83 Mustang GT. Also, will the recommended tire sizes also work for the '83?
Unfortunately, we don't carry the 87-93 GT front spindles. We would recommend either sourcing those from a local salvage yard, or find a used pair online. You can also find more information about that specific swap on some Mustang forums. The recommended tire sizes for these wheels are going to work in the 79-86 Mustangs.
