DRIVELINE “PUT A FORD ON YOUR FORD” Ford Racing Performance Parts uses the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards: SAE J175 and J328 for impact and fatigue testing and ASTM B368 for chrome testing. These standards define a series of tests that ensure the safety and finish of a wheel. THESE TESTS ARE THE MINIMUM STANDARD USED TO DEFINE THE ENDURANCE OF FRPP WHEELS. IMPACT TESTING This test simulates a curb impact on the side of a tire/wheel assembly. During testing, a tire/wheel assembly is mounted at a 13-degree angle to a test fixture by the hub. A weight is dropped from 9 inches onto the assembly at the tire/wheel intersection. The mass of the weight is determined by a formula, using the vehicle weight. DYNAMIC CORNERING FATIGUE TESTING This test simulates lateral loads applied to a wheel by the vehicle. During testing, a wheel is clamped to a fixture by the front face and a constant bending moment is applied through the hub. A wheel of new design will run a minimum of 1,000,000 cycles before approved. The load applied is determined by a formula, using the vehicle weight. DYNAMIC RADIAL FATIGUE TESTING This test simulates axial loads applied to a wheel by the vehicle. During testing, a tire/wheel assembly is mounted to an axle by the hub. A large drum drives the assembly while a load is applied perpendicular to the tire patch. A wheel of new design will run a minimum of 5,000,000 cycles. The load applied is determined by a formula, using the vehicle weight. CHROME QUALITY TESTING Copper-accelerated acetic acid-salt spray, commonly known as CASS testing, is the standard method used to test the corrosive performance of copper/nickel/chromium-plated wheels. The test is performed in a sealed chamber with a highly acetic spray directed onto the wheel for a predetermined amount of time, usually 66 hours. 18" MUSTANG MATTE BLACK WHEEL M-1007-P188MB a140 • 2005-2013 Mustang GT and 2005-2013 Mustang V6 • 18" x 8" wide • 5-lug 4.5" bolt circle • 40 mm offset • 6.3" backspacing • Mesh spoke design • Cast aluminum with matte black paint finish • Clear-coated to OEM standards • Not for use with OEM Mustang Brembo® brakes • Includes “Ford Racing” center cap M-1096-FR1 • Band and valve stem TPMS compatible 20" MUSTANG SPYDER WHEEL M-1007-P2085LN a140 • 2005-2013 Mustang GT and 2005-2013 Mustang V6 • 20" x 8.5" wide • 5-lug 4.5" bolt circle • 40 mm offset • 6.8" backspacing • Mesh spoke design • Cast aluminum with luster nickel paint finish • Clear-coated to OEM standards • Not for use with OEM Mustang Brembo® brakes or M-2300-S Brake Kit • Includes “Ford Racing” center cap M-1096-FR1 • Band and valve stem TPMS compatible NOTE: a140 For 2005-2010 vehicles with 16" wheels from the factory: -Installing 17" x 8" wheels, use Steering Stop 4R3Z-3932-BA -Installing 18" x 8.5" or 18" x 9.5" wheels, use Steering Stop 6R3Z-3932-CA.
