Day 15 of 20: All-New 18” Halibrand Style Wheels

Factory Five Racing has committed a tremendous amount of time and effort to re-tooling and stocking the finest aftermarket wheels available for our cars.  Part of that effort was to design an all-new 18″ Halibrand to join our popular 15″ and 17″ sizes.  I’m proud to announce that the new 18″ Halibrands will be standard on our Special Edition 20th Anniversary Roadster, and will be introduced at our 2015 Summer Open House event.

The new 18″ x 11″ rear rim has a nice deep dish and new machined radiused lip design.

This new wheel design is an 18″ 5-lug bolt on Halibrand style wheel with a 9″ front rim and a massive 11″ rear rim costing $1,899.

These wheels are cast aluminum, extremely strong, and lightweight. The centers are painted a beautiful metallic grey and the rims are polished. The entire wheel surface is then clear coated to protect the finish from oxidation. This is a one piece wheel designed exclusively for Factory Five Racing. The knock-off adapter, spinner, and cosmetic lug cover are also included with lug nuts and hex key. These wheels have backspace that optimizes the depth of the wheel dish while providing adequate clearance for a huge variety of performance brake rotors and calipers.

The 18″ x 11″ rear is massive with polished radiuses and a beautiful finished center.  Accepts 315 rear tire.

The front is a 9″ and we’ve softened the radiuses for a nicer look.

The 18″ fronts and rears work with the new Wilwood brakes specifically designed for the 2015 Ford Mustang/Factory Five IRS.



These wheels are headed to our 20th Anniversary Mk4 Roadster to be debuted Thursday night at Bass Pro Shops Cruise-In at Patriot Place in Foxboro, MA and also will be shown at our 2015 Open House.
