    Hello all,

    Been almost 20 years since my last SHO. 2016 CPO being delivered next week...can’t wait!
    The only thing I do not like on these cars are the flower type wheels. Flat out ugly!
    I’ll likely use these as winter wheels. Please post pics of different wheels on your car...and thoughts of these TSW Bristol’s, which I’ll likely put on this summer.
    -Mike

    TSW Bathurst. I've been happy with TSW, I ran them on my Navigator year round and they held up fine against before the SHO.

    It wasn't the price, but the size and color. I wanted a 20 x 9. Took me a year of searching and a shit ton of beer to settle on those.

    I hear that, spent way to much time online looking at wheels before pulling the trigger.

    My SHO has the optional wheels, not the "flower" wheels. I ordered those because I liked them better of the two...but still don't love 'em.

    I too looked at the TSW Bristol and another called Ascent, if memory serves. I was hoping to find a better pic of the Bristol wheel so I can better understand what they mean by the mirror cut face. I'm not sure if I personally would like a polished, chrome-like finish. I think I'd like a more silver painted finish...

    This is the best pic I could find and I don’t think you’ll get a better idea without seeing them in person

    Still looking around....liking the TSW Mechanica too. Am I correct that the factory 20s are 8" wide and aftermarket are 8.5". When I do the swap, I'd like to use my original tires. Should I expect any issues with the slightly wider wheel?

    I was looking at those in black too and couldn’t get comfortable without seeing them in the car. I did see a Maxima with the silver ones and they looked good.

    Thanks!

    I've been missing around with Photoshop and while it's not perfect....it helps me get an idea of how it might look. For example....here's my mock-up with one of the TSW wheels. I used the pic taken just before I took delivery.
