Rascasse is the name given to an exciting new wheel added to the TSW Alloy Wheels 2015 product lineup. The Racasse is distinctive for its elaborate latticework pattern, executed in silver with a brushed face and a chrome stainless lip or in a unique matte gunmetal finish with a gloss black lip. The Rascasse is named for a tight, 135-degree right hand switchback component of the legendary Monte Carlo Racing Circuit in Monaco.
The Rascasse 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 Rascasse’s latticework core could only be realized through the casting process. The two components are joined with fusion welding for a near-invisible seam and ultimate durability.
The Rascasse is available in four widths in each of the 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters. That facilitates mounting a staggered fitment with the Rascasse, 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 that come from mounting wider tires.
