Forget that the warranty, doesn't state "track use"... it does however say "misuse and abuse" ... I'd say he misused and abused ... If you are going on a track, don't drive on wheels designed for the street.
Fool.

It just goes to show the ownus is on buyers not to buy into marketing hype with some of these wheels and just stay with proven companies.

Definitely a fail by Cor! Seems like they learned their manufacturing techniques from ADV.1.

And I was thinking about buying a set of COR wheels recently. Looks like that's not happening.

Fool.
I thought "Track Spec" wheels could be used at the track...track spec???

Seriously, when I see Forged wheel...I think total CRAP. Kind of like the whole CF thing. I've kind of liked one style of forged wheel but that's about it. I don't see what the love affair is all about.

let your product speaks for itself. "trying to clear up some facts" only makes you look more guilty in the court of public opinions. that is unless your product can't live up to its claim.

I'd never heard of this wheel company before. Now I have.

These fly-by-night wheel companies have been popping up left and right, because people will spend silly amounts of money to be "individual" and make their car stand out. Regardless of how expensive these poorly made wheels are, it just makes sense to stick with a well-respected, established, competition-proven wheel for track use: BBS. Rays/Volk. Forgeline. CCW. HRE. OEM BMW (typically BBS).

Save the blingy iPOOP2000.1 "rims" for posing on the street.

Glad the Mustang driver didn't get hurt.

Ha! Those are great! I saw the GT-R one and chuckled to myself since they blocked me from posting on their page!

But the 20" iPOOP2000.1 rims are so 5fast5furious! You should see them in body color, they look like they are worth at least $25k
