C. P. C. is pleased to announce the formation of our NEXT Generation Wheel Division to design and manufacture wheels which are of interest to our industry and our customers.

We currently have five designs in various stages of manufacture, all are to be released by mid September.

The first wheel, which was released earlier this year is an up size 17”x 8” Aluminum Ten Spoke style which is a larger version of the 14” x 6” Ten Spoke originally offered as an option on 1966 Shelby Mustangs. Spokes are face cut to highlight and contrast cast surfaces.

This high quality wheel takes advantage of modern wheel and tire technology while maintaining a close likeness to the original styling of the early Ten Spoke. The 17” x 8” Ten Spoke is manufactured with backsets to be direct “bolt ons” for 1965-73 and 1994-2004 Mustangs.

The second wheel scheduled to be released next month, is an up size 17” x 8” SS Style wheel which is a larger version of the 14” x 5” Styled Steel wheel originally offered as an option on 1965-1967 Mustangs. This is a chrome plated cast aluminum wheel with painted cove areas and stylized lug nuts. We can add your choice of red or black 1965-66 style or blue or black 1967 style center caps to suit your preference. This wheel truly captures the essence of the early Styled Steel wheels and is sure to change the look of any Mustang in such a way as can only be described as “extraordinary”. These wheels, like the 17 x 8 Ten Spokes are supplied with 4.75 inch backset for 1964-1973 Mustangs and 5.30 inch backset for the later models.

It is important to note that both of these cast aluminum 17 x 8 inch wheels, though much larger than original wheels, fit within the stock wheel wells and offer a considerable weight savings over steel wheels. Autoworks recommends BFG 225/45/17 and 215/50/17 tires on the 17 x 8's years - '64½-'66.

There is a consideration, when developing these oversize wheels that not all wheels look good when the design is stretched to a larger diameter. However, our 17 x 8 SS wheel turned out looking so good on the early Mustang and the later 1991 – 2004 Mustang, that we decided to make it in a 20 x 9 and 20 x 10 inch version as well to fit the 2005-2007 models. These wheels will be for staggered fitment and are hubcentric with a 70.7mm bore specifically for these Mustangs.

These 20 inch wheels accept the same red blue or black wheel centers as the 17 x 8 inch version and there simply is no other wheel that we’ve seen that looks as good on one of these retro 05-07 Mustangs as our retro versions of the “Styled Steel” wheels.

The original 14 x 6 inch Ten Spoke wheel used on 1966 Shelbys and Mustangs has not been available for many years, and with the introduction of our 17 x 8 inch Ten Spoke we received a number of inquiries regarding the 14 x 6 wheel. NXT Generation’s Wheels is now reproducing a limited number of these 14 x 6 wheels with stylized center caps, and they will be available later this year.
