370fitment, the points I have made are simply that Strasse forged is their own company that is not owned by COR nor is it a private label of COR. The only things I have stated is that Strasse has their own tooling and equipment and that is what is used to cut their wheels. I will let Strasse forged comment in here if they so choose on the equipment they bought to cut their wheels. I have confirmed they share space with COR and buy their materials through the same channels and the same suppliers. I have also confirmed that there is nothing wrong with the materials or the wheels made by Strasse. Strasse also openly encourages its customers to track their cars and they only provide a few designs that are performance proven but also stylish. The problem I have is simply with users such as wow370z. These types of users typically do not help our community... When he didn't get the response he wanted he went to personal attacks regarding a private matter were a police report was filed... Honestly I stepped out of this thread because no matter what I said he is firm beliefs that Strasse = COR... THIS IS NOT THE CASE! The problems with threads like this is that members perpetuate one side of the story and not both sides which in my last post was simply pointing out before the personal attack. Yeah the guys wheel broke but until more info is brought to the table who knows what caused the failure. The only thing the people on the Internet can do is play pretend experts and pulls guesses out of their @sses!!! We don't know what happened to that wheel or why it broke! Only COR would know after testing the wheel or wheels to investigate why it broke.... My point in this thread is don't pull in other companies and blacklist them because of a one sided story that runs through the Internet with false info like the L4P post quoted earlier saying Chris Carrillo is the owner of Strasse and COR... Which is totally bogus. My point here was to defend Strasse from biased people like wow370z who supported forged specialties when he ran their wheels and other brands when he runs them. He simply jumps from one brand to the next and then judges other brands like Strasse when he doesn't even own their wheels and probably never has owned a set. I have supplied about a dozen sets or more to 370z owners and not once have they had any issues. Only praises on the quality and finish of their wheels. Not once have any of their wheels needed warranty replacements or had issues on and off the track. All of them got pictures of their wheels being made from start to finish from the blanks arriving to in the CNC machine and to final paint/Powdercoat and assembly... I and Strasse have worked hard to provide our members here with an amazing buying experience and after purchase support. If members wanted anything changed like different center caps after their purchase I made it happen even though no money was made on the deal.

As a former vendor and hope to return soon. I pride myself in customer buying experience and after purchase support. Many members here can contest to that! I value the relationship over the dollar. It's an old school method of business but it works and customers are willing to buy more from you because of it! I want customers for life not just simply fly by night purchases.


Simply said Strasse are quality wheels that are tracked every week and events are hosted by the manufacturer to do so. Their have not been any failures on 370z's or other platforms and like you said fitment I always ask my customers to call me if they want something changed about their wheels as I may know a shop in the area that is reputable in making those changes or they can send them to Strasse for a quality job without breaking the bank and keeping their warranty!

1. You should see the rep points I get for the posts I make when I am calling out shady vendors, shady actions and correcting misinformation. 50% of my rep points on this forum are from when I called out shady deals including FS,UAM and Jamaica. I am doing a service to the community by being the only one to call out people before things get swept under the rug. I don't mind being that GUY if it saves member's future hassles.

2. I was lied to about Forged Specialties wheels. Once I found out, I got rid of the wheels and posted the truth about the wheels being made in China not Germany. I was quick to disavow the company and its product. The fact that you and FS got into it personally is your problem. I finally found a company that doesn't lie to its customers. They make the wheels in house and I am fortunate enough to be able to drive and see this.

3. What I posted from L4P is factually correct. Where did it state that Chris Carillo is owner of Strasse and COR? Can you link where I posted that? Your bold statement(lie) should be backed by evidence. Either you failed to comprehend what you read or you are trying to make me look like a liar. Do you even know who owns COR? Their names are Robert Herrera and Christopher Robles, hence Chris and Rob. As a vendor for COR, I would expect you to know the owners names of COR. So would you like to apologize for what you said about me and my supposed lie?

4. I am sure Strasse is great quality. That really isn't my contention with you. My problem with you is that t you keep going back and forth about who manufactures Strasse and are actively skirting the truth. You are doing a disservice to this community by bullshitting us.

The more you post the more I understand why I feel I have to respond to your posts. You always have to add some sort of ******** and/or straight up lie when you talk about me or others.

You can post an apology or PM me.

Just close it, the important information is out there and you aren't going to get an apology. Its time to shelve this train wreck of a thread.

too long, didn't read, but...

Why are there vendors arguing with each other over mustang's COR wheels on a 370 forum?

Seriously guys, what the fuck.

okey dokey mods that's about enough of that. We have officially devolved to a level of extreme ineptitude, is this a Honda forum? Let's just build a pit and the opposing parties fight to the death using the wheel they have a boner for as a weapon. Obviously the superior wheel will not break as it impacts the opponent, so that will solve both problems: Find out which wheel is strongest and the destruction of conflict initiators on this forum. The infinitely thick heads of the combating parties are sure to be sufficient for this stress test. I make my case. Either fight to the death, or lock this ho down.

That is a generalization. Don't let one thread that was derailed by vested interests ruin it for everyone.

With that being said I am over the lying and false information.

Do we have to close every thread once conflict has emerged and parties stoop to lying?

I am sick of the idea that we have to close threads or they get swept under the rug once people are caught with their pants down.

This is why there is so much incorrect information floating around this forum and the internet in general.

I guess I have a stake in not closing it because I am sick of the ******** and now straight up lies and its getting old.

Gave it some thought, I am closing thread as the lies are obvious and/or complete failure of reading comprehension/ability to understand anything by Bullitt@UAMotorsports and the random AMG member.

I will not insult anyone on the forum by keeping this open any longer as they(members) can make rational decisions based on the good information posted scattered within lies/nonsense/clutter.
