- How to Install Wheels on Your 1979-2013 Mustang
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with a classic Mustang wheel but with a little bit of a twist, I’m referring to our AmericanMuscle.com Bullitt wheels fitting all 94 or newer Mustangs, now available in a solid gloss black or solid matte black. If there’s any one wheel that simply belongs on a Mustang, it has to be the Bullitts, for some reason that iconic 5 spoke deep lip design works so well on these cars, from the classics, all the way to the newer body styles, up until recently your options have been fairly limited, a polished lip with a different color face. Well, now you can add these sinister all black options to that list. Our lightweight aluminum Bullitt wheels are available in a high gloss finish, or a slightly more reduced matte black with a satin clear coat. As for the sizing we’re looking at 17 and 18” diameters, and widths ranging from 8-10 inches. Since these are Bullitts you do have the option of going with that very cool deep dish feature which will give you that nice big lip, all these different options leaves you with a couple of choices, go staggered by sticking a wider wheel and tire on the rear, and if that’s the case you can even exaggerate that stance even more, by sticking a wider deep dish wheel on the rear and a non deep dish wheel up front. On the other hand you can go with a standard fitment by sticking the same width wheel and tire on all 4 corners, which will give you the ability to properly rotate those wheels and tires in the future. You can purchase these wheels by themselves if you like, however if you’re going to need some new rubber to go along with those new wheels, then why not let us do the work for you, we do offer a couple of pre built tire and wheel combinations, where we pair your Bullitts up with some of the top tires on the market today, in sizes that are guaranteed to fit your Mustang without rubbing, even if you’re lowered an inch or two. On top of all that, you get to take advantage of our free mounting and balancing and free shipping and handling. Finally all AmericanMuscle wheels are backed by a lifetime structural warranty, and a 1 year warranty on all finishes. Installing a new set of wheels and tires is something any backyard mechanic should be able to tackle, with the use of some basic hand tools and a floor jack. Making sure the car is on level ground first, go ahead and crack those lugs loose before you get the car in the air, once you’ve done that, simply jack the car up, swap out all 4 wheels and tires and that’s it, getting all this done should only take you about an hour from start to finish. Ok, so black wheels rule, we already know this, we also know that Bullitt wheels look great on Mustangs. Put them together, and you have a combination that cannot miss, so be sure to check out a set of all black Bullitts for your ride, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

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!

I love these wheels but why would you make a set that is not for a year model car ie. This set front don't fit the same years the rears will .why would you list together ? Make another list not like a few key strokes is hard for your IT. guy. And when I purchased this set two of which I can't use and you did the build up. A call about tire pressyre sensors befire hand would have been great. Because I had to pay to have them broke down sensors installed and rebuilt and balanced again. Nedless to say I was and still am quiet unhappy with your service and follow up. Love the wheels they look great only had to buy 6 to get it doneHelpful (3)

Great all the way around
Bought these for my son. Great price which I liked, since I had just bought two new tires for the old factory wheels and my son was very happy with the look and performance. Really happy we went with the 18x9s.Helpful (6)
Will a 235 50 18 fit on this wheel
The 235/50R18 will not fit a 18x9 wheel. You would need at least a 245/40R18 for proper fitment.
Is there a reason why the front tires are thicker than the rear in this kit? 45 in the front and 40 in the rear? I'm hesitant on ordering these because of that...
What you are referring to is the sidewall of the tire. The first number is the width. So between 255/45R18 and 275/40R18, the 275 tire is wider. So when looking at a tire with these measurements, the first number is the width in millimeters. The second number is a percentage of the first number, and that fraction will be the height of the side wall. The third number is the size of the wheel.
Will these fit 225/60 r17 tires?
These will not fit that tire size.
Will these fit 226/60 r17 tires?
These will not fit that tire size.
Will my bullitt center caps fit the inner bore of the wheel?
They would be the same size, however, the clips on the backside of the center caps will not match up.
Numerous factors determine which size and styles we carry of products. While we do not currently carry this in a 19" size at this point in time we would be glad to forward this feedback and perhaps we will have this available in the near future!
The Bulitt Solid Black Wheels will only come pre-installed with the new "AM" center cap. We have moved away from the original "American Muscle" center cap but can be purchased separately if you prefer that style.
We do not yet have a timetable as to when the matte black will be available as of this time but we would suggest bookmarking the site page as we may have these in the near future for purchase.
Yes, this kit includes 2 18x9 Deep Dish Bullitt wheels and 2 18x10 Deep Dish Bullitt wheels.
This Staggered Bullitt Solid Black Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit will not fit your 2011 Mustang GT. This wheel and kit is specifically going to fit the 05'-10' GT and 05'-14' V6.
You do not have to purchase the Bullitt Solid Black Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit. We do offer custom wheel and tire kits you can create over our site, or if you would feel more comfortable we can help you set up an order over the phone! Our contact information can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/contact.html.
Yes, This kit will fit the GT500 from 07-14
TPMS sensors are installed on the wheels before the mount and balance of tires, so you would not have to worry about that. If you purchase the kit the TPMS sensors are still installed on wheels before mount and balance.
We do have a matte black option however the current matte black option we have comes with a machined lip. At the current time, we do not carry the full matte black color.
Hello! The weights we use have an adhesive backing and are stuck in place on the inside of the wheel.
Simple installation for anyone.
