- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
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

I've always been a fan of the polished look vs the chrome. American Muscle really delivers with these wheels. I paired them with tires and took advantage of the free mount/balance. Great cost saver. The only hiccup I encountered was that they did not ship in the estimated time frame.Helpful (6)

These Cobra Replicas are a good quality product made of aluminum and offer weight-savings compared to stock steel or standard factory wheels. I like that they come with a center cap installed and definitely upgrade any car's appearance.Helpful (7)

These are great!
These are a huge upgrade compared to my stock 15x7 rims. The polished look is great, it pops out and is low profile at the same time. I paired these with some wheel spacers, so it has a staggered look, I highly recommend it. I do have to add however, the front wheels are not a perfect fit, they do rub a bit when turning sharply when backing up, but not a big deal though.Helpful (6)

The best !
First time buyer ! Love the new wheels ;) lightweight and excellent condition! Thax for Cobra r's ;) I'm vey satisfiedHelpful (7)
I have 1" rear spacers with the factory lugs extending past a lil. Do these rims have the cutouts for the factory lugs to fit into?
The factory lugs will fit this wheel.
Will these 9" wheels rub 2001 cobra front inner wheel wells on hard and/or completely locked turns with the 275/40-17 tires? With 10" wheels on the rear and the 9's in the front will the overall handling of the '01 Cobra change much?
This will not rub and the overall handling will not change at all.
IS THE POLISHED WHEEL THE SAME FINISH AS MACHINED?
Polished would be a different finish and look than the machined wheel.
How much do these weigh?
This will weigh around 27 lbs.
Hi, These wheels will clear 4p brembo brake (stock 2000 cobra R) w/o spacers? Thanks
These wheels will fit the 4 piston brake without spacers yes.
These wheels would clear the 4 piston brake yes.
The 2003 Cobra Style Polished Wheel - 17x9 (94-04 All) will be made with aluminum.
Simple installation for anyone.
