Three new TSW wheels for the UK market
The UK distributor for TSW Alloy Wheels, Yokohama HPT Ltd, has announced three further additions to the company’s range of replacement alloy wheels – the Demon, Terra and Shadow. The Demon is a ten-spoke wheel, featuring five pairs of flat-faced and hard-edged spokes running to the rim’s outer edge. Not only does these enhance the wheel’s sense of size – it also creates an aggressive appearance, well suited for performance or modified cars.
The faces of the spokes and the outer edge of the rim are machine-cut and lacquered while the recessed, webbed mounting flange and the inside of the spokes and rim are finished in a ‘liquid smoke’ paint. The Demon will suit most five-stud applications and will allow brake conversions to be shown off in their full glory.
The Terra also features hard-edged spokes, but this time there are eight and the appearance is more restrained. Again, the spokes run to the outer edge of the rim to enhance the wheel’s size on the car and are machine-cut, as is the edge of the wheel rim. However, in contrast to the Demon, the Terra features four elongated teardrop details formed in alternate spokes, radiating out from the bolt-holes.
In a similar vein is the Shadow. Whereas the Terra is designed for four-bolt mounting options, the Shadow is designed for five, with five spokes running to the edge of the wheel rim. As on the Terra, the mounting holes are brought into the design, this time with similar elongated teardrops running from the holes towards the wheel rim on each of the five spokes. The body and detailing of both the Terra and Shadow models are also finished in ‘liquid smoke’ paint, creating a pleasing contrast with the machine-cut faces and rim.
All three wheels are available in 15in, 17in and 18in sizes from Yokohama HPT’s nationwide dealer network, with prices starting at £93.95 including VAT
