New for 2015, The Portier model wheel from TSW Alloy Wheels is a bold, geometric look featuring five oversized U-shape spokes meeting at an intricately architected hub with an artfully recessed bolt pattern. The Portier is stunning, finished in silver with a brushed face and a chrome stainless lip or a unique matte gunmetal finish with a gloss black lip. The Portier is named for a famed section of the Monte Carlo Racing Circuit where the course dives down to the edge of the Mediterranean Sea.
The Portier employs an innovative multi-piece manufacturing process. Multi-piece wheels combine the light weight of a forged outer barrel with the design flexibility of a cast hub and spoke system. The two components are joined with fusion welding for a near-invisible seam and ultimate durability.
Four widths are available in each of the 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters to facilitate mounting a staggered fitment with the Portier, meaning rear wheels a half inch to one and a half inches wider than wheels on the front axle. Staggered fitments combine a more aggressive visual appearance with the traction advantages conferred by putting more rubber on the road.
