And again agreed...!!! But, can all this agreement result in the warranty not becoming void ??

Same size rims, same offsets and they HAVE to honour the warranty.
Escalate the matter if any service centre says otherwise.

Offsets will void the warranty due to adverse effects on suspension components.

+1 to that

But there is a catch most of the shops selling alloy wheels know zilch about offset / PCD and try to sell whatever they have in stock. Also I noticed the packing of Taiwan made alloys have an unfilled boxes for Offset , PCD etc. So there is no easy way to find these values.
Imported alloys are 7J or 7.5J instead of OEM 6.5J required for Scorpio so be careful while purchasing so Aura and Neo are best bet but their designs are more or less same as OEM ( Aura is OEM supplier I think)

Even if Tyres are not projecting and offset is same difference in RIM width sometimes causes tyre rubbing against wheel well and mud guards when steering is turned fully and suspension is activated ( read turning on rocky tarrine or broken tar road) resulting in hard to diagnose khach noise which will never be reproduced in front of service advisor.

Best one can do is to take a scale put the OEM Rim flat on a surface and measure the offset.

Without offsets, no point in changing the alloys...The extended wheel base really adds to the Scorp. I shall wait for the warranty
to expire naturally!!! Meanwhile, will keep working at the A.S.S to "somehow" allow a set of alloys of my choice.

@Pramod: fabulous pics. Ladakh is beautiful.

Default Alloys & The Warranty

Had a detailed chat with A.S.S. regards the addition of alloys and it turns out that the warranty on the TPMS would be void. Everything else would be ok!!! But this was all verbal...Lets see if this could be an authorised job.

Default Images of my new Scorpio VLX

Thanks to folks on Team-BHP who helped me in shortlisting a vehicle I needed for my wildlife photography and I finally choose Scorpio. I got the delivery of my vehicle and here are some images which I took today morning at Manchinbele (on the outskirts of Bangalore).

Rgds,
Sudhir Shivaram
