Restoring your Mustang comes with a lot of work and decisions. If you're trying to keep the classic styling while getting the modern performance upgrades you desire, check out this Gunmetal 17" x 8" Old School Wheel with a Machined Lip from B/G Rod Works. This wheel's design was inspired by traditional hot rods and will give your Mustang an aggressive look that will compliment any body color or style.
The Old School Wheel (OS 780-5114-00 GML) is constructed from cast aluminum which provides better weight savings and durability than traditional steel alternatives. The five spoke design comes from the muscle car era style. It will clear most modern brake upgrades while accommodating original equipment backspacing, so no major modifications are necessary for installation. The wheel is finished in a gunmetal gray with a machined lip for a timeless look. A chrome center cap with the B/G Rod Works logo is included.

Tech Tip: Even though these wheels are intended to fit the rear of most 5-lug 1965-1973 Mustangs with the original 5 x 4.5" bolt pattern and 4.50" of backspacing. It is a general rule of thumb, you should always measure and verify clearance before ordering aftermarket wheels, as modifications may, or will be necessary for fitment on your classic Mustang.
