TSW BATHURST 17X8 +35 5X100 Gloss Gun Metal
The Bathurst wheel from TSW is the latest in their line of wheels that employ exotic rotary forging® manufacturing technology. Rotary forging® produces wheels that are uncommonly lightweight. Thats because the manufacturing process alters the molecular structure of the aluminum alloy in a way that increases its strength. That strength allows TSW engineers to reduce the thickness of the outer barrel, reducing rotational mass. Even the largest Bathurst size, 20×10.5, weighs less than 25 lbs. Just as innovative as its manufacturing process is the Bathursts design, a brilliant starburst of ten ultra narrow beveled spokes that is as visually light as its actual weight. The Bathurst is stunning, executed in silver with a mirror cut face or a spectacular gloss gunmetal. In a nod to TSWs racing heritage, the new wheel is named for the Bathurst 1000kM race, regarded as the pinnacle of Australian motorsports. The Bathurst is available in multiple widths in diameters including 17,18, 19 and 20 inches. Multiple widths make possible a staggered fitment, which involves rear wheels slightly wider than front wheels. Staggered fitments combine the visual appeal of a more aggressive stance with added traction under cornering and acceleration achieved through mounting wider tires. The Bathurst 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.
TSW Wheels was founded back in the 1960s by a Formula One driver and has had a continuous involvement in motor sports ever since. Most of their custom wheels take their names from the worlds great racing venues. TSW is headquartered in California and serves customers worldwide. Nothing sets your car or SUV apart like a new set of distinctive custom wheels from TSW. Make a bold statement by choosing just the right design, finish and size from their collection of light alloy aftermarket wheels. Youll discover that their wheels are as remarkable for their uncompromised quality, precision engineering, advanced materials and revolutionary manufacturing processes as they are for their stunning designs. There is always a better way to make products. They will always be able to design better products than they have today. They will be more efficient in the future than they are today. Maybe because their roots are in racing, they know that no matter how fast you are today, you can still go faster. They believe that their wheels do more than just make the world more beautiful. They try to do more than just design good looking wheels. They believe that wheels are safety critical products and that they should be engineered to carry the weight of the vehicles that ride on them. This should never be in doubt. They believe that they should fit the vehicle perfectly and that half a millimeter does make a difference. They believe that quality matters. They don’t like to compromise because sometimes there is no room for error. They believe they can make a difference, not because it will help them sell more wheels but because it matters to their customers and to anybody who rides on their products. At the very core, this is who they are.
