The xO Auckland Rotary Forged wheel is a concave, monoblock 5-spoke design. With deep spoke scalloping and contour cuts, the xO Auckland is as lightweight as it looks. The thin spoke profile allows for maximum brake cooling from performance cars and shows off the large brake calipers. A luxury wheel deserves a luxury finish. The xO Auckland comes standard with a full Brushed Gunmetal finish that is brushed by hand. The subtle brushing on the rotary forged aluminum brings out the concave profile of the wheel. For those looking for a more conservative finish, the Auckland wheel is also available in Matte Black.
The Auckland Rotary Forged Wheel is manufactured using a highly advanced production technique called Rotary Forging. The rim of the wheels is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed. This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strength of the alloy. The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel. Most importantly, the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.Features:
- Finish: Full Brushed Gunmetal
- Size: 19x9.5
- Bolt Pattern: 5x114.30
- Offset: 20
- Load Rating: 1825
With regular care and regular road conditions, TSW offers a two year finish warranty on its wheels with chrome and painted finishes. TSW provides a five year structural warranty for wheels it manufactures that are structurally unsound because of a manufacturing defect caused by TSW that makes the wheel unfit for its ordinary purpose. Damage or issues with wheels manufactured by TSW that are not caused by, or the result of, a manufacturing defect by TSW are not covered under the warranty. Additionally, the following are expressly excluded from the warranty:
THE WARRANTY ONLY APPLIES TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF A WHEEL AND THE WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE ACTUAL AMOUNT TSW WAS PAID FOR THE WHEEL.
- TSW does not offer a "road hazard warranty," so any damage or issue with a wheel caused by the wheel colliding with a pothole or any other object or debris will not be covered by the warranty;
- Wheels that have been used in racing are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness; and
- Wheels mounted on vehicles with a load rating in excess of the load rating of the wheel are not covered by the warranty regardless of the damage or structural unsoundness.
- Wheels that have been modified, repainted, or powder coated.
To submit a wheel for determination of coverage, a distributor must first obtain a Returned Goods Authorization number from an authorized TSW salesperson. Wheels sent to TSW without first obtaining a Returned Goods Authorization number will be refused and returned to sender. After obtaining the Returned Good Authorization number, THE DISTRIBUTOR WHO PURCHASED THE WHEEL FROM TSW must send the wheel by freight prepaid, as freight costs, shipping costs and any consequential damages are not covered by the warranty, to TSW headquarters in Brea, California for inspection by TSW. The invoice of the original purchase must be included with the wheel so TSW can verify the wheel is being submitted for coverage under the warranty by the original purchaser. A customer of a distributor cannot directly send a wheel for inspection to TSW as TSW does not communicate, correspond or deal in any way with the customers of TSW's distributors. A wheel submitted to TSW by a customer of the distributor will be returned.
After receiving a wheel submitted by a distributor for inspection, TSW will inspect the wheel and notify the distributor if the wheel is covered by the warranty. If TSW determines the wheel is covered by the warranty, TSW will issue a credit note to the distributor for the amount the distributor paid TSW for the wheel.
