Announcing a brand new wheel design from TSW Alloy Wheels, fresh for 2015, the Bristol. The Bristol is substantial in every dimension, from its muscular slab spokes to diameters up to 22 inches. The five beveled spokes blend seamlessly into the outer lip, accentuating their formidable scale. The Bristol is available in two finishes, subtle matte black or in classic silver with a mirror cut face. This newest TSW wheel is named after the NASCAR short track venue located in Tennessee.
The Bristol is available in 17×8, 18×8.5, 18×9.5, 19×8.5, 19×9.5, 20×8.5, 20×10, 20×10.5 and 22×10.5. The multiple widths in 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters make possible a staggered fitment, which involves rear wheels which are slightly wider than front wheels. Staggered fitments have become quite common in OE applications, both for the visual appeal of a more aggressive stance and for the added traction under cornering and acceleration achieved through mounting wider tires.
Like all TSW wheels, the new Bristol is hubcentric, meaning the center bore diameter is determined by the year, make and model vehicle, for a snug fit over the vehicle’s hub resulting in a smooth, vibration free ride.
