Should I get AMR rims?

I'm looking at getting the 20"x 8.5" AMR charcoal wheels all the way around on my 2012 V6 but I read that the rims are 6-7 pounds heavier than stock. Anyone have any experience with these rims and any pros/cons?? Any info is much appreciated. I'm also open to maybe just getting 19" rims. But I can't pull the trigger yet haha

I have the 19s with staggered set up and honestly I think they look legit. For the price for tires and wheels I think you can't go wrong plus American muscle is always a good place to buy stuff πŸ‘πŸ½

My vote...no. Doesn't every one has these? There are a lot of great looking wheels out there. Shop around a little and be different. I just did some Niche Targa's and they look great. They only cost 1000.00 for 20x8.5 and 20x10.

I think my next wheel setup is going to be 20s. And I know the AMRs are very common, but I really do think they look sharp. To each their own though!

I've gone from the stock 17s to the stock GT 18s to the premium GT 19s (changed tire size on the 19s from the original 245/45/19 to 255/40/19).

The 19" tires are more expensive than the 20", so that's how I'm justifying it.

Yea I thought about being different. But I will check out the niche targa and shop more, it's just for the price I was thinking there had to be something wrong with them or some issue haha

I was gonna do staggered but I'm more of a daily driver with a lead foot so for rotating purpose I probably won't stagger. Have you had any balancing problems or big mpg decrease?

Mpg decrease that I have is due to my mods not my rims or tires. You may lose maybe 1 mpg I guess but no balancing issues to report.

Wow that's sooo clean. So those are 20" all the way around and 8.5" in front and 10" in the rear right? What type of tires did you get also??

I lowered my stand 1.5 all around and I'm thinking of getting the 20 inch staggered set up from AM, does anyone know if they will be a running issue or should I go with the 19's??

I thought these wheels were a dime a dozen as well because everyone on this site pretty much has them. However in the real world I've seen a total of 2 mustangs with amr wheels. Every other mustang I see has stock wheels. I guess if you were taking it to a car show they might be common, but doubtful you'd see these every time your out. My wife was looking at wheels with me the other day while I was browsing AM and she loved the 19" black AMR wheels. She said the 18" looked too small and the 20" looked too big. I thought it was funny that she liked the black wheels better than the silver ones because those would have been my choice. Needless to say when I get some money saved up I might be going this route.

I agree! They seem all too common on Mustangs here on this site but in the real world, I've seen only one other 2011+ Mustang with them in person.
They seem to fit the car perfect in their design. I'll also be going with the charcoal AMR 20's staggered or possibly 19's. I'm waiting to save up gradually though and do it next Spring.
My first thought was the black ones to match my black 14 however, all too often, the tires look bad then.... It's like they look more grey or brown unless they're freshly cleaned and armoralled. With the charcoal wheels , the tires still look blacker, if you can picture what I'm talking about.
Kinda like this photo.. Beautiful Mustang and shiny black 20" AMR wheels but they make the tires look grey."ish" So that's why I'm going with the charcoal. Still a dark wheel but let's the tires look more natural. Yeah...I'm overthinking it

I liked the AMR's at first then I was turned away due to them being so common. I have the black SVE Drifts from latemodelrestoration on my car.

I have the charcoal 20" AMRs 10s on rear and 8.5s up front. And they look great on SGM. I've gotten tons of compliments on them. I just went on a 400mile round trip and did notice a decrease in MPGs. It was pretty significant, about 2-3mpg. I was running 75-80mph with the AC on in 85degree weather and averaged around 27mpgs. Compared to 29-30 with my stock 18's. Ride is a bit harsher than with the 18s and an increase in road noise. I don't mind the changes though. Especially with them looking as good as they do...




Only issue I had was that they were completely unbalanced when I received the fronts from AM. (I found the rear set locally and ordered the front from AM) I had to get them rebalanced by a local shop who said they were completely out of whack. AM refunded my money, but it was just a hassle. Lowered on Eibach sportlines. Mods in sig.

You got a point, but it was the subtle differences and the matte black finish that won me over.

TSW Nurburgring in Gun Metal 19.5X8.5" all around. Looked at the amr's, AM 2013 gt500 knock-offs, and all the other similar styled wheels. Every other wheel weighed more than stock by 2-7lbs. These 19" wheels weigh(21lbs)like 5-7lbs less than my stock 17"(26+lbs) wheels!! More grip, less weight, and 200 bucks extra over sve drifts and amr's, and something a little different? Seemed like a good deal. Pic was before lowering 1.5" all around.
I've never seen these on another mustang in person.


Good luck , I always have to give a second look back at my car when leaving now Lols.

Sir, I have been debating this very same question on what wheels. I was first leaning towards the AMR's but decided I will go with the MMD's. Those MMD's are soooooooo easy to clean and they look great.



Non 🍼and non 🌽fed. I $uck!
