No custom GT500 or Mustang build would be complete without a fresh set of tires and some awesome aftermarket wheels. We tossed on some 20" Niche Misano wheels with ultra grippy Nitto tires to give our GT500 a no nonsense street car look that has the traction to back it up. The new look pretty much speaks for itself! You can purchase these exact mods in the product section at the bottom of this page.
Niche Misano Wheels
We weren't trying to go over the top with this GT500 build, but we did need a more aggressive look and some extra rubber for improved traction and handling. Since the stock wheels and tires weren't doing us any favors, we jumped into a set of Niche Misano wheels in a satin black finish. We opted for a set of 20x9" wheels on the front of our Shelby and a set of 20x10" wheels on the back for a mean staggered stance.

Nitto NT555 Tires (255/35ZR20)
At the front we wrapped up our 20x9" Niche wheels in Nitto's fantastic NT555 Summer Ultra High Performance Tires in 255/35ZR20. These Nittos make for a solid street tire that has the perfect balance of high-performance and reliable handling, while providing stability and prolonged tire life. Designed as a Summer-time, dry-weather tire, the NT555 features a large contact patch that helps our GT500 make stable contact with the road. 255/35ZR20 Nitto NT555 Ultra High Performance Tire
Nitto NT05 Tires (305/30ZR20)
A rear wheel drive powerhouse like our GT500 needs a proper set of tires on the back to truly put the power to the ground. With our wide 20x10" Niche wheels on the back we were able to tuck a set of Nitto NT05 Max Performance Tires in 305/30ZR20. The NT05 is designed with a unique, continuous center rib and large outer shoulder tread blocks to provide consistent contact with the road for a high-level of dry performance. The specifically formulated tread compound and reinforced internal construction were engineered for dry road response, traction, handling and high-speed capabilities. 305/30ZR20 Nitto NT05 Max Performance Tire
