TSW launches Indy 500-branded wheels
TSW, a world leader in one-piece, staggered wheel applications, has launched an officially licensed, co-branded TSW Indy 500 wheel.
The TSW Indy 500 Wheel - the first wheel officially licensed by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway - will be available in both chrome and painted finishes in sizes ranging from 17 to 20 inches. The wheels will be built in staggered applications to allow enthusiasts the opportunity run wider wheels on the back of their cars and narrower wheels on the front of their cars, inspired by the IndyCar Series cars that compete in the Indianapolis 500 every Memorial Day weekend on the historic 2.5-mile oval at IMS.
"It's a perfect match, given TSW's long history of involvement in motorsports and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's consistent association with quality products," said Terence Scheckter, TSW chief executive officer. "We are very excited to be associated with 'The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.'"
TSW Indy 500 wheels will be available at TSW dealers in November. The wheels are available through most high-end wheel stores in North America, including www.discounttiredirect.com. To find a TSW dealer, visit www.tsw.com/dealer.
"We are very excited about working with TSW in our first relationship with a wheel manufacturer," said Nicole Garside, IMS director of licensing. "TSW has a great reputation for quality, high-end wheels, which is a natural fit with IMS."
Alloy wheels produced by TSW, based in Huntington Beach, Calif., are born of a rich racing heritage.
Founded by a former Formula One driver, TSW has been involved in motor racing around the world for more than 30 years, ranging from the Le Mans 24 Hours to touring cars.
TSW wheels are available throughout the world and have significant brand presence in high-profile markets such as Europe, North America and South America. TSW wheels are manufactured to extremely strict control standards and embody more than 30 years of design experience.
