Exclamation Cruze Redline Likes/Dislikes

Chevrolet has been slowly introducing performance geared styling and Redline packages are a large part of it, available on most Chevy products. Any time a brand does something new, we as consumers should provide constructive criticism. So, with that being said, have a go at the Cruze Redline, let me now what you guys think.


Cruze Redline, available on LT with RS Appearance Package, features:
  • 18-inch Wheels
  • Black Mirror Caps
  • Black Window Trim
  • Black Grille
  • Black Fog Lamp Bezels
  • Black Bowties

This is essentially just like every other manufacturer when they produce a "Black Edition" in my opinion. It's all aesthetics that we can essentially get done ourselves by someone that can vinyl wrap and what not. The wheels look great but that's pretty much the only thing that worth anything on that. I'd be interested to see what the price is on this to see if it's even justifiable.

The wheels aren't even that great to me. Lucky for us this isn't the only cool thing Chevy makes. Wheels from the Z28 Camaro will look great on the Cruze:

Those would look amazing but I can imagine they'd be way too wide to fit on the Cruze. What size tire does that thing run?!

They are 305's, so on a stock Cruze hatch body it will stick out however with some over fenders that shouldn't be a problem at all. Only problem at that point is how it drives. Someone into the whole stance thing and prioritizes that over performance will be fine her.e

It'll definitely be tough to manage whilst driving. With a tire that wide and not being setup for that, the steering wheel is going to pull to any defect in the road. Something as simple as going up from a 205 tire size to a 225 and you feel a world of a difference in steering.

Even when it come to tire height, stock tires are rated at 55. Running close or at 300, with that will come a lower profile tire. Ride quality will go down a lot. Wouldn't be surprised if the current stock tire size has a lot to do with ride quality. Chevy's aren't exactly known for it.

Typically in the 300 range you're looking at 30s or 35s. But, with big tires like that mean softer side walls (typically) and the sidewall is still looking at close to 4inches thick. So it isn't too bad in that regard.

But most definitely stock tire sizes are thought up by putting ride quality into consideration. Yeah there are times when they'll run the lower profile tires for the sport models and what not but a stiffer ride (due to tires) make the vehicle feel "sportier" to a lot of people.

Yeah its a trade off but worth it. Lucky for Chevrolet they're not at a point where people would rag on them for harsher ride. They just can't try that with Cadillac. ATS-V was criticized for this specifically, even the BMW M3 did better in that department and it still out performed in others.

I wouldn't really get in an ATS-V and think that it's going to be a plush comfy ride though as that would be a performance oriented iteration of it. If the ATS was called out for being harsh and bumpy, that would be a bit of an issue.
