    Re: Corson #25

    Man does this bring back fond memories of my Corson Spyder! I had randy build me a kit back in the early '90's but was never able to finish it as the car was stolen from my storage unit. I have always loved botht the Corsons and the Alden Thomas 288 GTO inspired cars. Great find, I now officially hate you ;D

The Ferrari 512bb uses Pirelli P7 front: 225 / 50 VR15 and rear: 345 / VR15. I think a lower profile of 50 would be better than the 60's as to me the 60's look like truck tires. I can get the Pirelli tires but at a cost of about $2K for a set of four. I need to find out what the Aldino's are running for wheels and tires. Aldino pictured below has a better tire profile.



    Interesting Adino picture.. Cool.. Any more of that one??

    I must say that's a great looking Corson you picked up Maine.. They sure did a great job with that kit and the interior is a perfect fit to really make the car stand out.. I would love to have one of those to go with my Aldino..

    Here is my suspension/tire setup and wheel gaps on the street..


    255/40 r-17 front and 315/35 R-17 rear..



    A real one..

    Thanks Mr Ferrari for the tire info. Your Aldino looks great! Sorry only photo I have of the T-top Aldino.

    Infinitewill, are you saying they never recovered your Corson?

    I'm looking for a copy of a Corson builder's manual. Willing to purchase hard or PDF copy. Anyone have one kicking around the garage?

    Also does anyone know the original reconmended tire sizes for the Corson?

    I might still have my build manual. I will have to dig through a few boxes when I get home tomorrow. If I still have it it's yours.
