Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013
TSW Alloy Wheels, an industry pacesetter in innovative aftermarket wheels, has raised the bar with the introduction of the 2014 Amaroo alloy rims, available now. What sets the Amaroo custom wheels apart is its aggressive mesh design, with twelve talon-like spokes flying out from a recessed hub to a brilliant forged perimeter barrel. At the point the spokes meet the barrel, a chiseled groove adds a distinctive embellishment.
That fetching visual masterstroke is made possible by exploiting the design possibilities of the two-piece manufacturing process. The AMAROO utilizes an advanced new process called Fusion Welding. The central hub and spokes are cast as one design element, then mated to forged barrel at a high temperature. This process creates a seamless connection and an aesthetically cleaner look while simultaneously saving weight. This approach not only opens up the design palette, but also permits the wheel to be manufactured in a wide variety of offsets to ensure complete compatibility with the broadest range of target vehicles.
“TSW is a tireless proponent of staggered fitments, mounting a slightly wider wheel/tire tandem on the rear axle for greater traction and a more visceral appearance,” commented TSW Alloy Wheels President Terence Scheckter. “That commitment is reinforced with the introduction of Amaroo custom wheels, available from 18-inch-wheels to 20 inch wheels, with several widths available in each diameter,” Scheckter added. TSW is the world’s largest producer of staggered custom rims. A fitment guide at fitment.tsw.com enables vehicle owners to match all TSW alloy wheels, in all possible diameters and widths, to their particular year, make and model vehicle.
For those in the market for black wheels, Amaroo rims will be offered in Matte Black, as well as Silver with a brushed face and a chrome lip. The wheel is made for five-lug passenger cars and specialty performance vehicles, and is available in four different bolt patterns. All TSW wheels are hub centric, ensuring a smooth vibration-free ride. The car wheels are compatible with manufacturers’ tire pressure monitoring systems and in almost cases can be used with the manufacturers’ lug bolts and hub center cap.
