New Cor 4-Piece Wheels ***WARNING*** - Wheels & Tires - NAGTROC - The Nissan GT-R Owners Club

This manufacturer makes wheels for many private labels including Strasse Forged.

This is one of worst wheel failures I have seen.

From the story at the link, this looks like an example of how a supplier should not handle a wheel failure.

Wheel failure aside, yes the business aspect/handling of the situation is the worst part.

I want to see the metallurgy report on those wheels. TeesGTR is my hero (4 pages into that thread)

DAAAAMN on the failure mode though. Every single one snapped? One must've gone, then the force distribution just snapped the others right off.

W.O.W. You have out done yourself again. Too bad Strasse cuts their own wheels with their own tooling. Ohhh and they also design their own wheels and have them tested before they bring them to market. That is why they only have a few designs... not because of lack of creativity but because their designs are proven and have not failed... And as the original article says the COR wheels warranties are void when in competition... That is COR not Strasse Forged... Also, Strasse Forged Hosts Track days for its customers both drag and HPDE's. The wheels are proven to be reliable on and off the track. My original set of strasse wheels are on their 3rd or even 4th vehicle and still look brand new! I am on my second set of wheels from them. I have sold over a dozen sets of wheels and have had ZERO problems with both customer service and the product itself.

You are making an attempt at a strawman argument. Everyone appreciates you linking the thread about the wheels and bringing to light the situation. HOWEVER, I and Others do NOT appreciate you lumping in other companies because YOU THINK YOU KNOW how their business is run.

kidding, mike, kidding.

but seriously might be good to clarify / post there if strasse is indeed apart from cor in terms of who cuts the centers. it appears more than one poster on that thread thinks they all come from the same pot.

Strasse Has their own Tooling and use a different cut method than COR. Strasse also purchases their own aluminum disks to cut from. The point being is they are not a Private label of COR. I sell COR and Strasse and they are two completely different companies with different processes both in manufacturing and how they do business.

So does strasse cut their own wheels at their own facility?



Just answer that.

Yes or no?
