Popular Tire Setups for this Wheel
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m taking a look at our race inspired FR500 wheels for all 94-04 Mustangs. These wheels are inspired by the factory built turnkey racecar the Ford Mustang FR500. Now these cars were built for one sole purpose: to be all out track monsters using beefed up suspension, and a slightly more radical engine. Now the styling of these wheels is drawn from the more aggressive racecar appearance that differentiated these models from their road going counterparts. Our FR500 wheels are available in both 17 and 18” diameters, and your choice of either black, black chrome, anthracite silver, or chrome finish. Now you can buy these wheels individually if you like, however the smart move would be to take advantage of one of our pre built tire and wheel combinations, that pair your new FR500 wheels up with some of the better performing tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your ride without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. Not only that you get to take advantage of our free shipping and handling, free mounting and balancing, and optional nitrogen fill. Now the wheels are available in both staggered and non staggered fitment and with the always cool deep dish feature. Now deep dish refers to the lip around the wheel itself, this means that the face of the rim is set further back from the rim, resulting in a nice thick lip which looks very cool. As I mentioned before you can get the wheels in a staggered fitment which simply means your rear wheels and tires are going to be slightly wider than your fronts giving you that classic muscle car look. That’s exactly what we’ve done on our 2000 V6 behind me, got the black 18x9’s up front, and as you can see we’ve got the black 18x10’s out back, giving us that really tough stance. This will also help our traction as well, thanks to the fact that we get to run a slightly wider rear tire, helping us get that power down to the ground. To give you an idea of what some of the different finishes look like we’ve equipped our 98 GT on the lift there with a set of anthracite silver FR500’s. Next to that on our Dynojet we have our 2000 GT, sporting the very sharp chrome finish. Whatever finish you decide to go with, rest assured knowing that we here at AmericanMuscle have your back with a 1 year warranty on all finishes, and a lifetime structural warranty. When you receive your new set of wheels from AmericanMuscle you’ll find that installing them is as easy as ordering them, all you need to do is simply crack your lugs loose first while your car is still on the ground, then jack the car up and swap the wheels. Doing all of that takes you about an hour using standard hand tools and a floor jack. If you’re a fan of racecar styling and you want your ride to be inspired by a true purpose built racecar, then you’ll definitely want to check out a set of our FR500 wheels for your Mustang.

New edge showpiece
These wheels are well finished in black paint and look 100 professional. Brings out aggression in almost any mustang. Only downside to these wheels is them being harder to clean due to the design and they're black so they show everything. Overall great set of wheels.Helpful (0)

The wheels look amazing on my 1990 Mustang LX. Clearance is thighs but the fitment was good. 5 Lug conversion, SN 95 spindles, Cobra brake conversion, bump steer, coil overs, and camber plates completed the mod. Left the 5 lug drums in the back. Overall another great product from American Muscle. Went with Hankook Ventus tires. 255/35/18 front and 285/35/18.Helpful (2)

FR500 Blk 2018
Amazing set of rim's with a great price. They really set my Black GT vert off in the style dept.Helpful (2)
Is there a way i can run 315s in the back i saw a previous q/a which answerd that you can run 305s in the back on custom mount but i cant find that option. I really want the 18in and 315s in the back
The Staggered FR500 Style Gloss Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit will come in a pre-assembledpackaged and we would not be able to swap out tires in this kit. However, we can build you a custom wheel and tire kit with a 315 rear tire. The easiest way to do this would be to email/call us to build you a kit.
What is the hub bore for the 18x10s?
Does this set come with the deep dish for the rear wheels?
Do you have 315 35 18 available for this kit?
Can these rims, similar to a solid wheel, handle higher RWTQ? (400 to 500)? I was told to run a solid wheel, if I add forced induction, but I have upgraded Brembo brakes in the rear; I am concerned with fitmint with a solid wheel.
These wheels will indeed be able to handle the RWTQ gains you have currently and would be a great addition to your pony!
The 18x9 have an offset of +30mm (1.2") and the 18x10 have a +22mm (0.9") offset.
These will feature a gloss black finish on the lip and spokes.
The 18x10 has a shipping weight of 30 pounds, and the 18x9 has a shipping weight of 28.8 pounds.
The 18x10 FR500 Style Solid Black Wheel will only fit 94-04 Mustangs.
These wheels and tires would cause rubbing issues on your 93 GT. You would need to look into doing custom fabrications to your car for this size to work.
These FR500 Style Wheel's can accept the stock lug nuts, however, there is very little clearance in the lug holes. Additionally, you would need a thin socket to install the lugs to avoid scratching the finish with the socket.
Solid Black will have a matte appearance while the gloss black with have a more shiny appearance.
Simple installation for anyone.
