Best under 1500 wheel/tire option?

Ive looked at sve drifts and american muscles wheels. But does anyone know of any other typically chosen options our car (maybe deep blue in specific).

Wheel weight is also quite important since i do occasionally drag race. Im set on the looks of the drifts or AMR die to price range but curious in how much we will save in weight Also.

Ok cause im assuming staggered 19s. I know 18s will be better for accelerating but it doesn't seem to fit the wheel well enough

Hey JVibe - Good question and I'm really partial the AMR Wheels; We have roughly 11 Wheel and Tire Kits that can be found Right Here: I would note that when you're looking at these kits and if you're after wheels and tires that you're going to need to purchase the TPMS Kit as well.

If you're wondering what any of our wheels would look like on your Mustang take a look at some of the customer submitted images where you can filter the selection by color:



Regarding your question on the wheel weights (If you're curious we'll have most if not all weights listed under the Specs Tab on the product page) I wouldn't be too concerned about them. Making the jump into an 18 really wont make too much of a difference on the overall driving dynamics. If you were getting into a 20" Wheel and Tire you would definitely feel the weight along with the ride go a little down hill but some of us make that sacrifice for the look!

let me know if you have any other questions and I hope this helps!

Alex

I went with the TSW wheel & tire kit from American Muscle.


B/c when looking around at the weights, the TSW's were about 5 lbs lighter PER WHEEL than most of the AMR & stock wheel weights. It might not sound like a lot, but 5 lbs per wheel x 4 wheels = 20 lbs off of unsprung / rotational mass. It really amounts to a pretty large difference in performance.

Example - basically same shape/design wheel:
AMR 19x8.5" wheel = 26.9 lbs
TSW 19x8.5" wheel = 21.9 lbs

The only drawback is the rear TSW's are only 9.5" wide (assuming you go staggered), it will limit the size of tire you can put on.

I didn't think I would need more than 285 wide unless I SC'd the engine, but going up from stock 245 to 285 rear did not help nearly as much as I was expecting it to with spinning the tires.

Forgestar are also similarly lightweight, but do come in wider size. But I preferred the appearance of the TSW.

Ok, the other drawback is they're more expensive. BUT you get what you pay for. I've learned do things right the first time, so you don't have to redo it & end up spending more the 2nd time around. ie: I see a lot of people going cheap with upgrades, then they buy a more expensive upgrade later & sell the cheaper upgrade... losing a lot of value on the sale of the cheaper initial purchase.

P.S. FYI, to find the wheel weights on AM you will need to look at the individual tire specs (not wheel/tire kits). You can also go look up tire weights on tirerack or the manufacturer's websites.

These are almost exact stock ride height and cheap too for that big a tire.

Nitto NT 05 Tires 295 40 18 NT 05 296 40ZR 18 295 40 18 Tyres | eBay

get these for the front, also very close to stock ride height (.3 inch less than stock ride height).

2 New 255 45 18 Nitto NT555 Ext 45R R18 Tires | eBay

Not a bad set of tires for $828 delivered.
