TSW wheels are born of a rich racing heritage. Founded by a former
Formula One racing driver, TSW has been involved in motor racing
around the globe for over thirty years. Our involvement has ranged
from the grueling 24-hour Le Mans to Touring Cars to Spec
Many of the wheels are based on racing technology. TSW pioneered
the race-inspired hex nut look that was featured in such standards
as the Revo and Hockenheim R, which have been a popular choice for
both grass-roots racing and show cars. In keeping with this rich
racing heritage, many TSW wheels are named after past and present
Formula One tracks.
Today, TSW has an absolutely staggering array of staggered wheel
applications. Several sizes carry as many as three different widths
for the perfect fitment. Staggered wheels are available in sizes
from 17" to 22" staggered wheel applications. Staggered
applications mean a wider wheel on the rear of the car, and
consequently, a wider tire and larger lip on the back of the car.
Wheel lips are as large as 5". Yes, that's right—5" lips on
one-piece cast wheels! Many of the wheels are available in hyper
black and hyper silver paint finishes with machine cut lips (often
referred to as diamond cut or mirror cut). Although chrome is
becoming more popular with TSW enthusiasts, hyper black wheels and
hyper silver wheels dominate the current TSW wheel lineup.
TSW wheels are sold with hub centric to rings to ensure a
vibration-free ride. TSW wheels are manufactured to extremely high
standards that often significantly exceed the industry norm,
resulting in a smoother, better handling ride.
TSW is sold in North and South America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand,
Australia and South Africa.
