Default No TSW fitment for Subies?

I really like some of the new TSW wheel offerings like the Kyalami, but was saddened to find out that they don't list Subaru fitments.

Any ideas why they do that?

I just looked around and their Thruxton, Montage, and Mondello appear to fit the WRX. Those same ones, plus the Donington have fitments for the STI as well.

No idea why, but doesn't TSW stand for Totally Soft Wheel? Had a set on my VW at one point, they bent on a regular basis...

Wow that sucks! They look nice, but I can't have that happening on any wheel I buy.

Good to know, as the Donnington is a cool looking wheel.
I wish they had more fitments though.

That is, until I read this...

That's not good.
I've never run a TSW, but know them from my old Honda days.

That is on pothole heaven New England roads, mind you. I had the TSW Hockenheim's. Looked like these:



The lips bent on me 3-4 times in about one year, and I'm careful about hitting big holes/bumps. I got rid of them after that in favor of some OZ's and never had another problem.

Wow, those Hocks bring me back.
Buddy of mine bought the first set of 18" wheels I'd ever seen, way back in 95'.
Silver Hockenheim wheels on a red Toyota xtra cab. It looked so good back then.
