Replacing an original factory wheel can be difficult - most Ford dealers don't have replacement wheels in stock, which means you have to special order. This can take days or weeks. Additionally, most dealerships charge a small fortune for an OEM replacement wheel.
A special team of Ford engineers, designers and experts worked for more than three years to create Mustang Dark Horse, a street and track-capable performance Mustang with striking visual cues and all the capability sports car lovers expect, right down to the available carbon fiber wheels from Carbon Revolution (late availability). Mustang Dark Horse is the first new performance name for the brand since Mustang Bullitt was introduced in 2001.
For ultimate street-legal and track performance, the available Handling Package improves aerodynamics even further with the most downforce of any all-new Mustang thanks to a unique rear wing that includes an integrated Gurney Flap, similar to that of the Ford GT. The Handling Package also adds stiffer springs, larger front and rear sway bars and wider Pirelli Trofeo tires and 19-inch-by-10.5-inch front and 19-inch-by-11-inch rear wheels.
While Mustang Dark Horse S has the same wheels as the street-legal Mustang Dark Horse, the upgraded brake system provides even further robustness to meet track demands. Multimatic DSSV dampers support driver tunability in addition to the adjustable ride height and camber settings.
Mustang Dark Horse R raises the track-focused intensity, featuring all Mustang Dark Horse S content, as well as special serialization that approves it for racing. It will come standard with strategic seam welding, a fuel cell for increased range, and Ford Performance Parts wheels.

Carbon fiber is a fantastic and revolutionary material that's been used in everything from aerospace to Formula 1. It's strong, lightweight, and usually looks great in its various finishes. These properties have attracted automakers to incorporate carbon fiber on production vehicles, such as Ford, which offers plenty of the stuff in its optional carbon track package for the body of Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, including its wheels.
While he doesn't know exactly how this particular GT500 driver happened to blow apart one of their front carbon fiber wheels, he does know that the car had to have hit something fairly hard in order to flat-out destroy the barrel of the wheel. Commenters on TikTok speculate a pothole or curb, while Pittman keeps it fairly simple, suggesting the car simply underwent a casual yeeting that resulted in the damage.
Whatever may have happened to this particular GT500, it's a reminder that one of the downsides to being both strong and lightweight is... brittleness. This means that, unlike other aluminum or steel substrates that are used to construct less expensive wheels, carbon fiber doesn't exactly have much room for flexing.
The process to perfect a carbon part is more laborious and complex than something made of plastic or most mainstream metals, meaning that production cost is quite high. The wheels on the GT500 with the Carbon Fiber Track Package are manufactured by Carbon Revolution, an Australian company that also reportedly worked with General Motors on carbon fiber wheels for the Z06 variant of the C8 Corvette. However, Ford maintains a catalog of parts where potential buyers will need to look in order to procure a set.
A full set of staggered 20-inch wheels include two 11-inch wide front wheels and a pair of 11.5-inch rears. Coincidentally, the front wheels are more expensive, costing a whopping $7,390.57 each from Ford's parts catalog. And to top it all off, it looks like the brake line to the front caliper also caught some damage, adding insult to injury.
Perhaps if you're fortunate enough to score a car with carbon fiber wheels, remember to reserve them for track use, or at the very least, be extremely careful not to hit any pot holes on your commute. $7,400 is a hard lesson to learn.

Large wheels and tires are available for seemingly every automobile on sale today, ranging from compact sedans all the way up to full-size pickups. While 20-inch or even 22-inch rims are often an attractive option, there are a few things you should keep in mind before deciding to tick that box on the order sheet. Here are the pros and cons of buying a car with 20-inch-or-larger wheels.
Larger tires and wheels are almost always more expensive to replace than smaller designs, mostly due to the extra materials required to manufacture them. Given that 20s have a greater probability of seeing damage, you may have to deal with an unexpected expense.
Larger-diameter wheels tend to weigh more than smaller sets, which can result in slower acceleration, and increased braking distance, and worse fuel economy. Added unsprung weight also causes more wear on suspension parts, which might mean replacing bushings or dampers earlier than you would on the same vehicle with smaller wheels. 781b155fdc
