TSW are very strong wheels ... ive had the Trophys,VX1s,&, hockenheim R and now for the b5.5 wagon the Catalunya .....
never had an issue with bends or construction ...chrome pealing on the VX1s 8 years ago.......
hands down TSW :thumbup: :thumbup:

i had Konig Imangines and monsoons and they were strong too ......


(I think i might be a wheel whore....... got 2 sets of stock 16s, 19s on the wagon now and a new set of 18s w/tires)

Wow I think you are the ONLY person to have had good luck with TSW.. I can't say as of late how their quality is. But those of us who had VX1's(me) Throphy's (my buddy) and Hock r's (another buddy) ALL had issues.

back in the mid to late 90's they were known as

Woohoo, somebody posted my Variant....Yeah, my TSW's are fine. If from all my research on them found they were soft, I wouldn't have gotten them. I drive on some crappy backroads on my commute.

The black one posted is mine. I bent one of them, but i hit a pothole with a metal pole sticking out of it (as in large hole, pole sticking out still below street level but higher then bottom of pothole). I was driving at night on a dark street and BAM...that bent and cracked the lip about 4'' long. Somehow the tire stayed on though and it didnt lose any pressure or wobble at all. So either props to TSW or Cooper for that one, not sure which helped, but it could have been a lot worse looking at the wheel afterwards. I didnt even notice it untill i got home (5-10 miles later).

So TSW quality, they can bend, but then again so can most wheels. I think the way i hit that pothole would have bent almost any wheel. Other then that one incident though they have been fine.
