    Re: Linea Corse Wheels Arrived

    Well, I'd never heard of that Cor, either , but you're right, that's probably what Ry was referring to. I'd be frickin' livid if I was the owner of that Mustang! Certainly seems as though Cor is speaking out of both sides of their mouth on that one.

    With that said, that Cor design doesn't exactly scream, "I am designed for track use!" at me. Regardless of what their website said, that very open design with narrow spokes just wouldn't give me much confidence. For the same reason I wouldn't be inclined to track my LC Venetos, but I would feel OK tracking the LC855s. Nothing scientific about it, just gut feel.
    '05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, Hyper Silver Linea Corse Venetos w/Continental ExtremeContact DWs (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...

    AFAIK, Rotas are made in the Philippines. Linea Corse is their "upscale" brand, so I'm assuming they're made in the same place. I don't have any of the old boxes mine came in to check that, and I'm too lazy to pull a wheel off to see if it says on the sticker inside the barrel. Anyway, there are plenty of folks that run track events on Rotas (including me), and some that race on them. The Turn in Concepts WRX and LIC Motorsports STI, two of the fastest Time Attack cars in the country, both run Rotas. What does that say about these LC wheels on this car? Who knows?!

    I wouldn't want to run 19" wheels on track, anyway. The R-compound tire selection in sizes that are "right" for us is terrible (even worse than the 18" sizes), and they're quite a bit more expensive, too.
    Sorry I was on my phone and auto correct "fixed it" for me... Here is a link to jalopnik and cor's website.

    Cool I was just looking for some track experiences on these. The biggest thing for me was size. The 19 forge stars are too big for wheel selections for what I want. but that just comes down to personal preference really. I was looking at these or the team dynamics cuz they are both 18 inchers.

    I totally understand that my skepticism is kinda retarded but I seriously just passed that mustang like 3 corners before this happened. Just opened my eyes a bit lol really wide.

    Fast forward to like 19 minutes if you don't wanna watch the whole thing... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP6d...e_gdata_player

    Aaaand I just saw your other posts lol. Didn't see em on the mobile app facepalm.

    Has anyone run 285s or 295s on the linea corse wheels without rub?

    My car has aftermarket trailing arms (forget brand) to provide more room and is lowered.

    In the market for summer tires...

    Fuzzy is running 285s in the rear but he's on Forgestar F14s, not the Linea Corses. You might be able to sneek the 285s in the rear with the Linea Corses, but don't know for certain. Depends on your arms and whether (and how much) you're lowered or not, I'd suppose.
