Turns out the wheels off my 2014 GT work perfectly on my new 2015 Mustang GT w/PP, including ample clearance for the 15" 6-piston Brembo calipers/rotors up front. I measured the backspacing on the factory PP wheels and these are almost identical. Now my Pirelli's can be saved for the summer.

Additionally, it appears the TPMS sensors used on the 2010-2014 Mustang (still in my old wheels/tires) are compatible with the 2015 Mustang, as tire pressures were getting reported from each wheel without requiring re-training for the TPMS sensors.

Tires are Michelin Pilot Sport AS3's @ 265/40ZR19 Front and 285/40ZR19 Rear versus the factory PP tires at 255/40ZR19 and 275/40ZR19.
Wheels are Ford Racing GT500 Forged wheels:
Front = FORD RACING MUSTANG SHELBY GT500 FRONT WHEEL | Part Details for M-1007-SA199* | Ford Racing Performance Parts
---- 19x9 with 40mm offset, 6.6" Backspacing
Rear = FORD RACING MUSTANG SHELBY GT500 REAR WHEEL | Part Details for M-1007-SA1910* | Ford Racing Performance Parts
---- 19x10 with 51mm offset, 7.6" Backspacing

Factory 2015 Mustang Performance Package black wheels: (spec's below are molded into the back of the wheels)
---- 19x9 with 45mm offset, approx 6.7" Backspacing
---- 19x9.5 with 52.5mm offset, approx 7.2" Backspacing

Sad fact is that my 2014 was lowered 1.5", the 2015 is sitting at stock height.

great pics, part of me says save cash and get a 14, the other half says stick it out get a 15. Side by side the 15 does look better and I like that the mirros are on the door itself now. BTW do the mirrors fold on the 15?

The mirrors do fold in but, the space it saves is only an inch or two.

I can tell you from experience that the wheels from a 2012 california special (19") don't work. They wouldn't clear the massive front 6 piston caliper (2015 50 anniversary). On the back they looked stupid as they were set back about 1" into the fender well. I purchased a set of 20mm wheel adaptors and that fixed the problem. BTW the 2012 sensors didn't work either. These are for my winter tires only. The summer tires are mounted on American Muscle GT500 style wheels that I kept from the 2012 Mustang and they worked just fine on the 2015.

Reverse?

Quick question, will this work in reverse? Will your 2015 wheels fit a 2014 without issue? I'm looking at a set of 2015 GT PP wheels for my 2013 V6 and was unsure about fitment.

general rule of thumb is that any wheel that fits over 2011-2014 brembos will work on the 2015-up, or at least so i've been told. CS wheels do not fit over the 4-piston brembos, so a definite no go for the new 6 pistons :(

Any idea if the 18" 2012 GT wheels will fit over a 2015 EcoBoost Convertible's brakes? I do not have the performance package and have an awesome set lined up.

Stock 20s on mine are 265/35/20 5x114.3 9x20 ET45 70.5 center bore. According to everything I'm reading, the 2012 GT 18" wheels are the exact same specs: 8x18, ET45, 70.5 center bore.

Will these fit over stock EB brakes??

please help

QUESTION.
I'm still stuck in my 2012 V6 premium with the factory 17" wheels. I'm in the market for a set of tires with decent grip and tread life with a decent price but anyway you look at it will cost $600+ so while I'm willing to spend that, I figured I would look at some more recent model take offs and I found 2015 50th anniversary 19" wheels and tires with Pirellis and with only 1200 miles on them for $700 and I want to go by and pick them up already but don't know if they will work. Can anyone tell me if these do or do not work and why they may not if that's the case? some other sources have said they don't work but I can't find why.
thanks in advance

Nice Wheels

Those Shelby GT500 Wheels are really sharp,(I'm not into the super flashy look either, that satin gunmetal finish is badass) wish Ford would have made a similar wheel optional on the S550 GT PP. I like the 19" wheel & tire combination, the 20s with the low profile tires look good but make for a harsh ride. I checked on Ford Racing Website and they have those wheels in the 19x9 but no 19x10s like you have for the rears. don't no if they just quit making them or I'm not looking in the right place, may I ask when and where you got them ?

Hi. I have the same nagging question. I hava a 2014 GT with premium package and i wanted to switch to 2015-2017 factory OEM rims. Site says they wont fit. But not sure why because aftermarket rims sold will apparently fit both year models. Were you able to get a satisfactory answer? Dennis M.

Aftermarket rims are more "universal". Larger diameter holes for the wheel studs, and hub openings.
