While the all-new, next-generation S650 Ford Mustang will reportedly launch next year, the current-get S550 Ford Mustang is still going strong. Ford also continues to expand its parts and accessories for the iconic pony car, recently adding the S550 Ford Mustang PP1 rear spoiler and 2018-2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R steering wheel to its catalog. Now, an S550 Ford Mustang extended wheel stud and nut kit joins those items as the latest official pony car accessory.
The new Mustang extended wheel stud and nut kit is sold under part number M-1107-E in the Ford Performance catalog and retails for $255. It’s compatible with all 2015-2022 Mustang, Mustang GT, and GT350 models (except those equipped with the Carbon Fiber Track Pack or wheels requiring 97mm studs, which must instead use part number M-1107-F), as well as the 2017-2020 GT350R.
The S550 Mustang extended wheel stud and nut kit comes with 10 wheel studs and 10 lug nuts made from aircraft quality alloy steel. The kit features a baked-on CT-10 coating with Teflon and moly studs and a teflon base nut coating, with an M14 x 1.5 RH thread and 54mm thread length measured from the shoulder.
While it may seem a bit mundane, this kit actually presents a pretty big upgrade for those that like to track their car on a frequent basis. These wheel studs and nuts are similar to the ones used on the FP350S, GT350RC, and GT4 road race cars, and are intended for use on track-focused vehicles that require high quality, strength, and resistance to thread galling in repeated wheel removal and installation cycles. If nothing else, this kit certainly seems like cheap insurance against losing a wheel on the track, which could have devastating results.
