I was looking around online and found these "Performance Pack Style" wheels from American Muscle:

https://www.americanmuscle.com/blackperformancepack-19in-2015-sumitomohtrziii-stag.html

They look just like the Performance Pack 1 Wheels from Ford, but cost less. It seems like a good deal for 4 wheels and Sumitomo Maximum Performance HTR Z5 tires for $1258.98. Anyone else have these type of wheels from American Racing?

OE Wheels LLC also make PP replicas. But with a better offset, and the 19x10's fit front and rear. Oh yeah, and they are generally cheaper than the AM replicas. I think both the PP replicas are a bit heavy, but still lighter than stock. Close to the same price as many are asking for their used PP take offs.

1. I'm looking for a staggered setup.

2. I'm open to other kinds of wheel measurement setups such as running 11 inch wide for the rear.

3. I'm not looking for a more aggressive, flush with the fender look right now. But I have heard of other people adding spacers to their PP wheels.
If you're not married to the PP1 style, I'd wait to look for Black Friday sales on these or their SP2s (PP2 replicas). You'd get 10/11 staggered, lighter weight, and better looking fitment.

I bought a set of 300 mile PP1 take-offs from a member on this site for $400 (rims only). I would say be patient and look for the Ford wheels, but that's just because I prefer factory stuff.

I've seen used PP1 wheels for sale for about $500. So while aftermarket is lighter it'll be up to you to decide if it's worth 2x-4x as much.
I'm personally a bit more conservative with how much I spend, so the value of used wheels speaks to me.

And I certainly think the black PP1 wheels would look good on a white mustang.

Verses $130 per wheel for the 19x10, somewhat lighter OE Wheels replicas. Though my friend got them on sale for like $100 a wheel last year.

I thought the stock PP1 wheels were attractive, but a royal pain to clean, heavy, and cast (so not very durable, I bent two)

i’d go aftermarket.

gotta go good aftermarket though. a lot of garbage out there that is actually weaker than the stock wheels.

i still haven't found a wheel i want yet but i don't mind the pp wheels at all.

pp1 wheels and those stock pad brembos get the fronts dirty so fast

I went with ARP extended wheel studs all the way around. And then I got slip-on, hubcentric wheel spacers from Optimum Performance.

Front = 1/2 extended studs and 20mm spacer
Rear = 1 inch extended studs and 15mm spacer

A proper grown man flush stance on stock PP1 wheels on my 2019. No poke!
Nice, that sounds pretty perfect. I seriously considered going that route at one point, sounded like too much work :D, so I scored a lightly used set of Motorsport Tech spacers (super high grade). They were the 25mm/23mm size, which is supposed to be as small as you can go on the rear (23) and still clear the lug pockets in PP wheels.

Beyond the very tiny concern over that style (i.e., your wheels hanging off a second second of lugs, certainly wouldn't use an unknown brand ...), and the huge PITA of removing them (gallons of anti seize and they still fused to the brake rotor), they were a bit too wide - they certainly looked better than the tucked in factory wheel, but were a hair into the "poke" :D

Sold them, went with MRR M600s on that car ('16), it was traded, but I kept the wheel for the replacement ('19). Thes have perfect fitment, a touch more aggressive vs. your spacer setup, but still tucked in enough to look OEM-ish.

I started out with just 2 19"x10" AM replica wheels for the back of my 2018 PP1 GT. Liked them so much I got 2 more and am using a 5mm space in front. Now running square with 19"x10" with 275/40 19's all around.

So you're running 48-5=43mm offset up front? I could understand 35mm but wow. Pics?

Humm let's see:

Factory used PP1 for say $500 and 2 new tires so maybe $800 ish?

Vs

Aftermarket wheels...IN A DIFFERENT SIZE = New wheels and 4 new tires

Do the math if you are even worried about buying 2 new tires for those used wheels.

They're going to be 8mm further in vs. my 20x10 ET35 fronts, so I'd assume there's no fender clearance issues, and I guess if he's running them, hasn't encountered any suspension contact[?]

I think the photos worked this time. The tires are just slightly tucked. Maybe some would call these flush. Anyway, I really like the way these work and n rubbing issues at all.
