What relationship to Formula One, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Corvette, Jaguar, Land Rover, Smart, Lexus, and trucks have in common? This might take you a minute, but we’ll save you some time and come right out and say it: They’ve all had wheels designed and manufactured by Tiger Sports Wheels. Founded by Formula One driver Eddie Keizan, in 1960s South Africa, Tiger Sports Wheels would go on to produce OEM (original equipment manufacturer) wheels for many of the most important car companies in the world.
By 2001, the company would split, leaving Tiger Wheels and Germany’s ATS Wheels to produce OEM wheels. While TSW Alloy Wheels would continue to expand into the aftermarket wheels market. Since then, TSW has moved its headquarters to California and significantly restructured its offerings, even adding several brands specific to off-road, sport, and luxury makes. Under the TSW Wheels brand, you’ll find a wide array of wheels, designed to look and perform better than factory and engineered to be safe while doing it.
As befitting its Formula One roots, TSW Wheels names most of its designs after renowned or notorious race tracks, such as Bristol, Interlagos, and Nurburgring – racing and track terms, too, such as Chicane, Mechanica, and Sprint. If “race-inspired” is how you’d like your car to stand out in a crowd of ho-hum vehicles, then TSW Wheels deserve your consideration. TSW Wheels has design, finish, size, offset, backspacing, and lug options for nearly every vehicle on the market. TSW Wheels specializes in one-piece forged alloy wheels,
