TSW Alloy Wheels Introduces Advanced Rotary Forged® Wheel /RF™ Wheel

New Interlagos RRotary Forged® Wheel /RF™ wheel is available in 26 different fitments from 17” to 22”

Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 6, 2011

Huntington Beach, CA December 6, 2011 - The Interlagos wheel is manufactured using an advanced rotary-forging technique. Rotary forging shapes the wheel under high pressure, while it is spinning at high speed. These forces alter the molecular makeup of the alloy, creating a wheel with an uncommon combination of strength and low weight compared to conventionally cast wheels. Because the preponderance of the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel, rotary forging dramatically reduces rotational mass, improving vehicle performance.

The Interlagos is a face forward multi-spoke Rotary Forged® Wheel /RF™ wheel that takes it’s name from the home of Brazil’s Formula One Grand Prix, the Interlagos Autodromo race track. Much like the track, the Interlagos has a straight line spoke with a subtle curve near the barrel. Interlagos nine-spoke alloy wheels are available in silver taggered whewith a mirror-cut face and in stunning matte black. They are available in a wide array of staggered sizes, including 17x7.5, 17x8, 17x8.5, 17x9, 18x8, 18x8.5, 18x9, 18x9.5, 18x10, 18x10.5, 19x8, 19x8.5, 19x9, 19x9.5, 19x10, 19x10.5, 20x8.5, 20x9, 20x9.5, 20x10, 20x10.5, 20x11, 22x9, 22x10, 22x10.5 ands 22x11. A staggered footprint allows the rear wheels and tires to be slightly wider than the front, providing better traction and a more aggressive stance. "The Interlagos wheel represents our commitment to producing aftermarket wheels noted for their sheer beauty, while also maintaining the highest performance standards," says Terence Scheckter, President of TSW Alloy Wheels.

Interlagos aftermarket wheels are manufactured for virtually all 5-lug passenger cars and specialty performance cars. Some of Interlagos wheels are designed to be hub centric, meaning they are engineered to fit precisely over the center flange of the brake rotor, ensuring that the wheel is concentric with the wheel bearings for a truer, better balanced wheel/tire assembly and a smoother ride.

TSW Wheels are born of a rich racing heritage. Founded by a former Formula One racing driver, TSW has been involved in motor racing around the globe for over thirty years. Our involvement has ranged from the grueling 24-hour Le Mans to Touring Cars to Spec Miata. Many of the wheels are based on racing technology. TSW pioneered the race-inspired hex nut look that was featured in such standards as the Revo and Hockenheim R, which have been a popular choice for both grass-roots racing and show cars. In keeping with this rich racing heritage, many TSW wheels are named after past and present Formula One tracks.
