New TSW wheels for the UK
The UK distributor for TSW Wheels, YHPT Ltd, has announced the introduction of seven new styles into our market. All of these latest arrivals boast the quality expected from TSW and are available in a range of fitments, sizes and finish options.
Following the brand’s motorsport icon-based naming strategy, the first of the seven is the Bathurst, manufactured using TSW’s innovative rotary forging method, where the rim is forged as the wheel rotates at high speed. This, says YHPT Ltd, results in higher strength and lower weight. The Bathurst features ten slim-line spokes to the edge of the wheel rim and comes in silver with a mirror-cut face or gloss gunmetal.
The Bristol, on the other hand, is a far chunkier wheel, with five thick spokes running to the edge of the rim for a formidable presence. It is also available in silver with a mirror-cut face or matte black.
The Chicane is a multi-spoke wheel reminiscent of touring car racing with a recessed detail for the mounting stud holes. It comes in gloss black with a mirror-cut face or matte gunmetal.
The Nouvelle – the name of the chicane at the Monaco street circuit – uses a lipped design with five sets of three-pronged spokes in a multi-piece design. It comes in three finishes: silver with a brushed face and chrome stainless lip; gloss black with a chrome stainless lip or matte black.
The Portier is another multi-piece wheel using five pairs of forked spokes with a deep-lip effect and available in silver with a brushed face and chrome stainless lip or matt gunmetal with a gloss black lip.
The Rascasse is named after the famous cafe and corner in Monaco and has a mesh-type centre with a deep lip, finished in either silver with machined face and chrome stainless lip or gunmetal with a gloss black lip for huge wheel arch presence.
Finally, the Rouge uses five pairs of forked spokes but each with a recessed detail, enhancing its classic lines. It comes in a single finish – gun metal with a mirror-cut face.
The Bathurst, Bristol, Chicane and Rouge are available for 17 to 20-inch rim diameters in a range of widths and stud patterns, while the Nouvelle and Portier start at 18 inches and go to 20-inch. The Rascasse also starts at 18-inch but is available up to 21-inch, again in a range of widths and stud patterns. Prices start at £187.02 plus VAT.
