These American Racing's wheels are constructed using durable aluminum and are plated in a brilliant chrome for a sleek, modern look that accents any Mustang's body color. The design of the wheels was inspired by the classic wheels in the 1960s and includes a deep lip and five rounded spokes that extend to the barrel. The deep lip produces an aggressive look, which will take your classic's styling into the modern muscle car era while nodding back to vintage muscle cars. The spokes feature a curvature, which helps deepen the lip, aided by the large 17" diameter. These wheels will fill out your Mustang’s wheel wells better than your factory originals.
