GT350R Mustang Wheels Dissected

As we await the first 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustangs to hit dealer lots, our friends at Road & Track have provided an up-close look at the 19″ carbon fiber wheels that come equipped on the 920A ‘R’ option.

Saving 15-pounds of unsprung weight from an equivalent aluminum wheel (as found on the GT350), each of the carbon fiber wheels also provide exceptional protection against brake heat due to the innovative thermal coating developed by Carbon Revolution — the Australian wheel manufacturer that was tapped by Ford Performance to source these wheels.

Have a look inside the GT350R’s revolutionary carbon fiber wheels.
