Please Note: This wheel is designed to fit most 5-lug 1965-1973 Mustangs with the correct 5 x 4.5" bolt pattern and backspacing size. However, the aggressive diameter and width of the wheel is far larger than any factory wheel found on 1965-1973 Mustangs. Please check fitment before ordering, as modifications may, or will be necessary.

Tech Tip: Although a center cap is included, CJ Pony Parts offers center caps MAGACCS, MAGACGS, SAWCBS, SAWCRS and SAWCUS that will fit this wheel for a more Mustang themed look.

*For 1965-1968 Mustangs, 17"x8" wheels are recommended for use on the rear only. Wider wheels can rub on the wheel openings when turning.

We're here with a VN501 wheel fitting your 1965-1973 Mustang from American Racing wheels. This one-piece cast aluminum VN501 wheel from American Racing wheels has a very similar style to the iconic Magnum 500 wheel. It has a similar style painted and machined surface. This is a 17 inch wheel with an 8 inch width. So it will be a direct bolt-on to your '65 -'73 Mustang. I do suggest only using the 8 inch width for the rear. In case you want to mimic the look of the Magnum 500 wheel even further, the Magnum 500 original center cap will fit the American Racing wheel. You pop out the original, which I think you can see is smaller, the way the fingers work on this if you push the fingers downward and get them far enough, then it will pop into place. This American Racing wheel has a 4.5 inch back space and does include the American Racing center cap. These are available individually, as a set of four, a staggered set, and tire packages are also available.
