The new Ford Mustang Mach-E is switching up everything you’ve ever known about the Mustang. And with its five different trim levels, it can be tough to figure out which OEM tires and wheels are offered.

With the release of the Mustang Mach-E, Ford decided to offer five different models and a variety of OEM tires and wheels. Speaking of OEM tires, the Mach-E will come with either the Michelin Primacy A/S or the Pirelli P Zero summer tires. As for the wheels, there are six different OEM options available, depending on which model you’re looking at.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is a brand new car, debuting with Ford’s 2021 model year lineup. That said, there is still a lot of confusion out there as to what the OEM tires and wheels are for each of the five different trim levels. To help clear it up for you, we’ve created this one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about the Mustang Mach-E OEM tires and wheels.

With how new the Mustang Mach-E is, there isn’t a whole lot of information out there that’s easily accessible. So we want to ensure you have access to the most accurate information possible, which is why everything in this guide comes from only two places — Ford’s own website and owners of the brand new Mach-E.

Ford Mustang Mach-E OEM Tires & Wheels

For the 2021 model year, Ford decided to shake things up a bit by redefining what a Mustang can be. After 55 years of producing the standard Mustang, Ford surprised the automotive world by offering a brand new all-electric version of the iconic car — the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

If that wasn’t shocking enough, the Mustang Mach-E was actually produced, marketed, and sold as an SUV, not a sports car. Just think about that, the newest Mustang in the lineup is an all-electric SUV. That’s something almost nobody in the industry thought they’d ever see or hear.

As the reigning North American Utility Vehicle of the Year for 2021 models, the Mustang Mach-E is packed full of all sorts of new technology and intriguing design choices. But it’s still a Mustang and therefore was still designed for performance. Even down to the OEM tires and wheels. But which tires and wheels come on which model?

That’s where we come in. We’ve noticed how little information is out there on the new Mustang Mach-E and so we decided to create a comprehensive guide that broke down each of the five trim levels — Select, California Route 1, Premium, GT, and First Edition — and took a look at the tires and wheels that Ford fitted them with from the factory.

Most of the trim levels have their own unique wheel setup, with only one wheel overlapping between models. And with only two OEM tires being used, there will of course be an overlap between trim levels on that front.

But let’s get right into it. Here is a breakdown of the five different models of the Ford Mustang Mach-E and a deeper look into the OEM tires and wheels offered on each.

Ford Mustang Mach-E OEM Tires

Michelin Primacy Tour A/S

With the introduction of the brand new Mustang Mach-E, Ford wanted to be sure they gave their customers what they were looking for in terms of tires. So they went with the biggest name in the business and put Michelins on from the factory. They wanted to provide Mach-E owners with a great combination of comfort, longevity, and performance. Thus, the Mustang Mach-E (all models except the GT Performance Edition) was fitted with Michelin Primacy Tour A/S tires from the factory.

The Primacy Tour A/S is a top-tier all-season tire that was designed for luxury cars and SUVs to provide the best driving experience possible. The asymmetric all-season tread pattern works to provide reliable traction in all weather conditions throughout the year while simultaneously offering a quiet and comfortable ride.

Michelin wanted to be sure the Primacy Tour A/S offered as much traction as possible so they designed these tires with wide shoulder blocks that increased rigidity to work in conjunction with sweeping grooves that direct water away from the tire’s contact patch. These features ensure you will maintain consistent traction no matter the road conditions.

As a Michelin tire with all of the benefits that the Primacy Tour A/S has to offer, you likely aren’t expecting them to be very cheap to replace. But with how incredible these tires are on the new Mustang Mach-E, they’re worth every penny. You can buy new Michelin Primacy Tour A/S tires for your Mach-E for between $215 and $245 each.

Pirelli P Zero (Summer Tire)

The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition was designed with one major thing in mind: performance. And to really get the most out of the souped-up SUV that they could, Ford decided they needed to put an ultra-high performance tire on it right from the factory. That way Mach-E buyers could drive off the showroom floor and push the GT to its limits right away. So they put Pirelli P Zero summer tires on the Performance Edition.

Pirelli is not only one of the biggest tire names in the world in general, they are really known for their racing prowess and success over the years. With that in mind, the Pirelli P Zero tires were designed for high-powered sports cars for brands such as Aston Martin, Audi, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, and more. So these tires can easily handle whatever the Mach-E GT can throw at them.

With Pirelli’s proprietary silica and carbon black tread compound, these tires are able to provide extreme traction in warm temperatures, even if the roads are wet. Nano-composites are added to the rubber compound to resist uneven tread wear and enhance consistent traction. P Zero tires also come with Pirelli’s Noise Cancelling System built-in, offering a surprisingly quiet and comfortable ride for such a performance-oriented tire.

The Pirelli P Zero is one of the best-performing summer tires on the market and they will really allow Mach-E owners to push their new Mustangs to its limits. If you need to replace the OEM P Zeros or you want to grab a set for yourself, expect to pay around $160 - $225 a piece for them.

Ford Mustang Mach-E OEM Wheels

Ford Mustang Mach-E Select OEM Wheels

18” 5x108 5-Spoke Aluminum Wheels with Carbonized Gray Painted Finish (Standard)

The standard wheel option that comes on the Mach-E Select utilized the Ford-favorite 5-spoke wheel design that the automaker has used again and again on many of their vehicles. But the new Mach-E couldn’t just have the same wheels from a different model recycled and used for the new all-electric car, so Ford designed an entirely new 5-spoke wheel that is one of the best-looking OEM 5-spoke wheels they’ve ever offered.

These 18” 5-spoke wheels utilized a fairly simple and clean wheel design with five identical spokes that emanate from the center of the wheel. But as the spokes approach the rim of the wheel, they expand outwards and a unique design feature creates some interesting angles and features. To top it all off, Ford finished these OEM wheels in a carbonized gray paint, which Mach-E fans loved ever since the first concept photos were released.

19” 5x108 Aluminum Wheels with Aero Covers & Shadow Silver-Painted Finish (Comfort/Appearance Package)

For Mach-E customers that wanted to have a little more style on the exterior (and interior for that matter), they’d need to upgrade to the Comfort/Appearance package. And one of the big upgrades that come with the package is a different set of OEM wheels. Not only are the upgraded wheels 19” rather than the standard 18”, but the design really gives the Mach-E that futuristic electric car look.

These 19” aluminum wheels are finished with Ford’s unique Shadow-Silver paint and what really puts them over the top is the inclusion of high-gloss black-painted aero covers. These aero covers go in the area where there would normally be wheel pockets and make the face of the wheel almost solid. This is the type of look that you might expect to see on more futuristic cars, and they make the Comfort/Appearance package worth it on their own.

Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 OEM Wheels

18” 5x108 5-Spoke Aluminum Wheels with Aero Covers & High Gloss Black Painted Finish

The Mustang Mach-E fans that decide to go with the California Route 1 model over the base model Select get treated to a unique set of wheels. The 18” California Route 1 OEM wheels utilize the popular 5-spoke design but do it in a different way than the standard wheels on the Select. The spokes in general have a similar design to the standard Select wheels, except they are a bit wider and the wheels are finished in high-gloss black paint.

But to really set these wheels apart, Ford included unique aero covers that they say are designed for the open road. These aero covers are finished in a low-gloss black paint that makes for a nice disparity when used in conjunction with the high-gloss black paint on the rest of the wheels. These all-black wheels give the California Route 1 Mach-E a unique look and the wheels are unlike any that Ford has ever used before.

Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium OEM Wheels

19” 5x108 5-V-Spoke Aluminum Wheels with Machined-Silver Face and High Gloss Black-Painted Pockets

If you opt to go for the Mustang Mach-E Premium model, you’ll be treated to a bevy of upgraded features and appearance modifications. One of the most notable from the outside is the 19” aluminum wheels. The 5-V-spoke wheel design is just what it sounds like — it’s based on a standard 5-spoke wheel design, except the spokes split as they emanate from the hub and look as if they’re forming the letter “V”.

The spoke design is different than any of the other lower-tiered models, but the uniqueness of the appearance of Premium’s wheel does not stop there. The wheel itself is finished with a machined-silver face, but the wheel pockets are finished in high-gloss black paint. This means that the sides of the spokes and the pockets between them are finished in black. This color combination makes the silver face pop, and Mach-E fans love the look of these wheels.

Ford Mustang Mach-E GT OEM Wheels

20” 5x108 Aluminum Wheels with Machined Face and High Gloss Black-Painted Pockets & Aero Covers (Standard)

As the only model of the Mach-E to include 20” wheels from the factory, Ford felt it was necessary to create unique wheel options that were unlike anything found on the other models. For the standard Mach-E GT (although we wouldn't really call any trims of this monstrous SUV “standard”!), Ford included 20” cast aluminum wheels with high-gloss black aero covers to give the vehicle that coveted futuristic look.

These 20” wheels are most aptly described as a 5-hole design because the spokes and the aero covers are designed and utilized in such a way that the wheels look like they have five holes rather than any number of spokes. It really is one of the most unique wheel designs that Ford has ever used on any of their vehicles. To make them pop, the standard wheels are machined with silver and accented with high-gloss black paint.

20” 5x108 Aluminum Wheels with Machined Face and Ebony Black Painted Finish (Performance Edition)

For those of you who decide to go for the Performance Edition of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, you get treated to a number of upgrades over the standard GT trim. One of these big differences is the OEM tire and wheel package. You read above about the high-performance Pirelli summer tires that are included from the factory, but the Performance Edition also comes with its own set of wheels that those tires are wrapped around.

Like the standard GT, the Performance Edition was designed with brand new 20” aluminum wheels. But these wheels were designed without the inclusion of the aero covers from above, and the wheels were finished with a unique paint scheme. As with the other GT OEM wheels, these were machined with silver to start, but they were then accented with an Ebony-black paint instead of the standard gloss-black. It’s subtle changes like this that really make a new wheel design something special.

Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition OEM Wheels

19” 5x108 5-V-Spoke Aluminum Wheels with Machined Face and High Gloss Black-Painted Pockets (Standard)

Although the First Edition Mach-E appears to have sold out, we were still able to catch a glimpse of the OEM wheels that come on it. And, oddly enough, this wildly popular model of the new Mach-E does not come with its own unique set of wheels. The OEM wheels for the First Edition Mustang Mach-E are the exact same as the ones that come on the Premium models described above.

Since you’ve already read about these wheels, we won’t harp on them long. Suffice to say the First Edition’s wheels are 19” aluminum wheels with a 5-V-spoke design that are machined with silver and then accented with high-gloss black paint. These wheels may have been designed for the First Edition and then used on the Premium or vice versa. But in either case, it would have been nice to see the First Edition have its own unique OEM wheel design.
