Default Question on wheel and tire packages

My wife is giving me the awesome birthday gift of a new set of wheels. I like the staggered 2010 GT500 wheels, but I prefer the AMRs.

I was just wondering if the 18" staggered machined AMRs will be making a comeback? Once I know either way and my birthday gets a bit closer, I'll be ordering them...

I like both styles of wheels too! It's hard to say which one is better, to me it really depends on the Mustang color/styling/model. Unfortunately, the Machined AMR's have been discontinued for now. Currently we don't have plans on bringing them back, but things are always changing here, so I wouldn't rule it out!

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, I hope there's a GT500 wheel that fits your taste or another finish AMR. Let me know if there's anything else I can assist you with!

Thanks Shane, I was thinking about a darker finish AMR, but I like the machined look most.

I'm gonna pm you to see if I can get a discount code

How much does the 18x9 and 19x8.5 AMR wheels weigh? Thanks.

Which finish were you looking for? All of our AMR wheel weights are listed under the "SPECS" tab on the product page. Let me know if you're having trouble locating it or if you have more questions!

Thanks. I was looking at the charcoal ones. Do you happen to know the weight of the stock 19" wheels off a 2011 GT?

Assuming you're referring to the stock 19" Brembo package wheels, I've read on the forums they weight in between 25-26lbs. However, I can't say I've ever weight them myself either.

This is definitely something I would like to note down for future reference. If you find any official Ford stamped specs, let me know!

I have the 19" stock wheels but I don't have the Brembos. Wish I did though. That's the only thing my car is missing.

After a few searches online, I didn't come across an accurate weight for the regular OEM 19" wheels. Although, they're .5" skinnier than the Brembo wheels and have a heavier casting. So, I'd expect the weight to be barely heavier than the Brembo wheels. Which is still heavier than the AMR's you're interested in!

Thanks for looking. So I got jipped. I have skinnier and heavier 19" wheels without the added braking of the Brembos. I guess pads, fluid and brake lines are in order soon.

No big deal though. The AMR's are even lighter than the Brembo wheels, so you still make out in the end!

Hawk HPS pads will add a nice touch to your braking if you're looking to upgrade. I'm assuming this is a street car only or do you Auto-cross it often? If you're into Auto-cross, there's the HP Plus pads for confident braking in extreme heat.

It's a street car only. Brake pads, lines and fluid are coming eventually.

I got a beater 80s Mustang that I didn't want to put a lot of money into...put a set of Vanderbilt Hi-Fly 201s on it. Pretty inexpensive tires from SimpleTire.com; you get em online, then they ship em to a local affiliate for installation.

Then the HPS pads will be perfect. At least down the road when you get to that point.

Give me a shout if you have any more questions or concerns!

Awesome. Thanks. Just had a quick question. Can the Bama tuner fix speedometer errors caused by tires that are larger or smaller than stock? I have 245/45/19 tires but I wanted to get new wheels with 255/45/18 tires which are 0.7" smaller in diameter than the 19's.

Absolutely! Any of our Bama custom tunes have the ability to recalibrate your speedo for new tire sizes. Do you already have a tuner or are you just interested in one? I'm also assuming you're aware of our free tunes for life program?

Sorry for my delayed response. I didn't realize you posted back on the 10th. Thanks for the bump!

Shane


*FYI for anyone reading along- only '99 to present Mustang speedos can be calibrated with tuners*

Interested in getting the tuner. Too many hobbies. Not enough money. Lol.

Haha I have a similar problem!

I definitely recommend picking up a custom tuner than. You'll be able to correct your speedo, but even more than that- experience better throttle response and increased HP/TQ throughout the power range. A custom tune is by far one of my favorite mods for any model Mustang. You truly don't know what you're missing and you try it out for yourself!

Shoot me a PM if you have any questions about our tuners or Bama custom tunes!
