Adhering to a corporate dictate that aftermarket wheels should be as attractive as they are lightweight and precision-built, TSW Alloy Wheels ( http://www.tsw.com/ ) announces the new Mugello model 8 split-spoke mesh wheel. TSW alloy wheels has long been recognized as a leader in race-inspired custom wheels.
“Car aficionados will be eager to see how the Mugello will look on their make and model car, using our online visualizer,” suggested Terence Sheckter, President of TSW Alloy Wheels. The configurator is a user friendly tool available on the website at http://www.tsw.com/alloy-wheels-configurator/

The Mugello wheel, with its fetching face-forward mesh design is a stunning addition to any five-lug passenger car or small SUV. It is available in a variety of symmetrical and staggered sizes, including 17x8, 18x8, 18x19.5, 19x8, 19x9.5, 20x8.5 and 20x10. A staggered wheel footprint allows the rear wheels and tires to be slightly wider than the front, providing better traction and a more aggressive stance.
The Mugello is inspired by the Italian racing circuit of the same name, and takes its styling cues from that track’s 15 aggressive turns in just 5.2 km. The Mugello wheel has 8 sweeping split spokes that assertively roll back into the center hub of the wheel. It is available in a racy Matte Black finish or the classic Full Hyper Silver. All TSW custom wheels are manufactured to the strictest tolerances while maintaining the lowest possible weight. Like all TSW wheels, the Mugello is designed to be hub centric, meaning the wheels are engineered to fit precisely over the center flange of the brake rotor, ensuring that the wheel is concentric with the wheel bearings for a truer, better balanced wheel/tire assembly and a smoother ride.
“Grand Prix and Formula One drivers know what an advantage lightweight, well-balanced wheels can provide. We believe the Mugello delivers those attributes to our customers seeking an aftermarket wheel to enhance both the look and feel of their vehicles,“ Scheckter commented.
