When you think about Mustangs, your eyes and your heart are immediately drawn to it's stunning, muscular looks. Beyond the iconic long hood, short rear deck and swept back cockpit; the wheels and tires of the Mustang are one of the first things that you notice and one of the styling elements that has gone on to define our favorite pony car.
Did you know the original Mustang came on diminutive 14" wheels? Yes, that's right, the original Mustang wheels were positively tiny in comparison to the 20" wheels that have become commonplace on modern Mustangs. As the Mustang gained in popularity, stouter and more performance focused wheel and tire sets began to pop up on Mustangs that were increasingly performance focused.
In general, there are two types of clutches found on performance cars; single plate and multiple plate designs. Over the years, Mustangs have had an incredible array of wheel designs and tire options out of the factory. Typically, larger, wider tires were reserved for hotter versions of the Mustang like the GT, SVO, SVT or if you're lucky enough to own one; Shelby GT500 and GT350. Those that owned "lesser" versions of the Mustang were often stuck with smaller, less capable wheel and tire combos that left enthusiasts on a budget wanting a bit more. Luckily, the automotive aftermarket has always been there to pick up where the factory left off.
One of the first things an enthusiast does to create his or her own, personal, ultimate Mustang is upgrade the stock wheels and tires. Short of the most extreme Mustangs on sale today, factory wheel and tire combos can be lacking. Typically, you'll need to shop separately for wheels and tires to create your own package at a wheel/tire retailer since properly mounting a tire on a rim requires specific and specialized equipment.
