So these are Work T1S knockoffs? Linea Corsa is owned by Rota, so that would make Linea Corsa a higher end knockoff company?

Ive been around BMW forums and to my knowledge "Linea Corse" wheels is the European Rotas. Seriously the first wheel is a complete rip off of Work Varianza T1s....

They look good, but save money and no mod.

Linea Corse is not owned by Rota, I'm not sure where you got that from.

I am the global distributor for Linea Corse wheels, any dealer or individual who wants Linea Corse wheels has to go through me.

Rota is a total different company....Rota wheels are sold through cosmic marketing corporation....try calling Rota USA and asking about Rota wheels, you will get this: "Call Zoeb @ Linea Corse wheels - 510.304.7554"

Linea Corse wheels are sold through LTC Distribution.

Just trying to clear up some misinformation.

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

what are u really getting if you get the T1S? they're pretty much the same rim as the linea corse. WORK just copied a brand of HRE's so does that make T1S knock offs? obviously if they were the same price id get the Works just for the jdm bling factor, but if you're getting the same offsets with same color, i dont see the reasoning in spending $500 more for the same rims. and i dont think weight makes a difference at all (not sure on the differences) because you're purchasing 19" rims. just my .02
