NEW: AmericanMuscle Tire Size Calculator

Now you can size things up and figure out what works with your late model Mustang before ordering your wheels and tires! Gain measurements and key insight from this useful tool to help guide your wheel and tire selections. Not sure what size your stock wheels are? No problem. Just fill out the year/make/model and the tire tool does all of the work. The Tire Size Calculator is great for:

- People who want to see if a particular tire size will fit on their stock setup

- How much a new tire/rim setup will throw off their speedometer

- Measure and actually see the difference in sizing between your current setup and the one you are planning on having

- Finding the perfect stance and wheel well gap for your Mustang

 

While this tool is tailored to the Mustang enthusiast crowd, you can put in the wheel sizing for any car and get an accurate reading of what changes you can expect.

Anyone with questions on specific wheel related issues can reference a tech guide, such as our wheel buyer’s guide and explanation of wheel offset.

The big change for this already high-performance off-road pickup is the addition of a supercharger atop Ford's 6.2-liter V8, with spent gasses exiting through a Borla exhaust system. This improves the horsepower rating from a stock rating of 411 up to a shenanigan-ready 575. For a Shelby, the styling of this F-150 is very toned down, with only the company's name etched into the Raptor's digital mud to go along with custom wheels wrapped in 35-inch tires.

The company is only planning to build 100 of the Shelby Raptors per year, with pricing set at $17,995 on top of the stock donor Ford, which starts at $43,630. Scroll down for the official press release.
