quality is top notch.

We have a warranty against manufactures defects and we are based in the United States so if you ever have an issue you would be dealing with us directly

I've had these on my car for a while now and have gotten nothing but compliments.

They may not be very popular on the Lexus forums yet, but they are super popular on the BMW forums and people have been very pleased with them. If you want to question the quality of the wheels, you can check out those forums and see how please EVERYONE who purchases these wheels are

Linea Corse wheels are sold through LTC Distribution.

Just trying to clear up some misinformation.
maybe Linea Corse isn't owned by Rota, but their wheels are made in the same factory in the Philippines right? The fact that they are distributed through differently named companies doesn't mean a whole lot.

If you go to Rota's site, they link directly to Linea Corse site on their front page. So they are affiliated in some way, if not directly owned... maybe they have the same parent company? I'm not trying to discredit either brand at all, but if you have further information to clear up any misinformation we are all ears.

I'd say go for it. Those wheels look great, and just like the other person said, the T1S copied off of HRE wheels (i didn't know that), so does that maket he T1S a rep too? Go with what you like, to me, I'm really not into brand names on wheels like most people, i just go with what looks good and what I like. I was going to order these too, but I have to wait a bit, got some other stuff to take care of first. But yeah, they are nice, lots of bimmer guys have linea corse wheels, and the feedback's been great. And these will look great on white cars.

They both look pretty solid. The only thing left that would matter to me would be to know the weight comparison b/t the Works, HRE's, and these Linea Corse's. Strength differences would also be a factor, but that would be difficult to substantiate.

Anybody know how much each brand weighs??

Yo kenny you sure Works are only $500 more? So far even from vendors on here quoted about $800 more and thats shipped within US only.. and our locals are pretty much even more... Unless ken is hooking you up again and I'd say go for it, exactly what Lexboi250 said..

only if T1S is 500 more, that would be last year's price. they are around the 2300 range for a set shipped to US, and to canada you're looking at 2400. So about a grand US difference shipped to you. With the weak canadian dollars currently, and add taxes and duties on top, you might as well order it from your canadian distributor, and get it cheaper.

Linea Corse Dyna is a nice wheel regardless of whether or not it's a knockoff. But personally, I'd probably save up for the Works. I like the lip and the edge of the lip much better on the Works. I'm not sure if this means anything to you, but I believe the T1S is a true 2 piece wheel. Not sure on the Dynas, but by the looks of it, they look like 1 piece.

As for the Dyna, it is not a replica of the T1S, if you looked at the 2 wheels you'd see differences.

The work T1S in reality is a replica of another wheel, but I won't go into that

Zoeb
Not one time in my post did I say Rota owned Linea Corse wheels. My sources? go on BMW forums and watch them flame your wheels to hell. Of course you will have supporters and people who like them but so does Rota and every other cheap brand. Its ok if you buy them but why not just save your money and buy the legit stuff in better offsets? And the "Dyna" is different from The t1S? Different how? They look pretty much the same thing to me. Sorry T1S/Works > LC.

Even if Rota technically doesn't own Linea Corsa, I would be very hesitant to order a wheel thats made in Philippines at the same factory they make Rota's.

im not sure why you people are harping over who made the original design for wheels. most rims on the market are copied from someone else, it is the nature of the beast. back to the post, i like the rims....
