Hold off for a few months. TSW just announced a few new styles at SEMA.

Jerez:



Bardo:



Mirabeau (Two piece construction):



I really like them all personally. I just love TSW's timeless designs. I think all would look pretty good on the RL.

Great looking wheels from a company that builds nice stuff, most of which fits on the RL, just great! Fantastic brake clearance and low weights, particularly at the price point.

Jerez and Mirabeau - not so sure about the design : looks like a lot of fun to keep the chrome lip clean between the spokes and the lip..

Everything is listed on their website now. They also have pictures all of the available finishes up as well. That didn't take too long.

5 and 7 spoke are calling me. I'd love to run a staggered setup, I don'tknow how the RL would react to that though

SMDH at staggered... Reverse staggered for the win.

Why not put lips on all four corners?

They've been available for a little bit now. I called TSW and inquired about pricing a while back. I'd love to get the Jerez but I haven't even had my current TSW's for a year. If I found a buyer for my Londrinas I would order them tomorrow.

Spoke with a local Discount Tire shop today. He says that TSW rep told him Jerez may have clearance issue. I am now debating between TSW Panorama and TSW Willow. I am only considering 18s which may be why the Jerez isn't an option for me. Any opinions on Willow versus Panorama? Price difference is neglible.
