Default Aura Alloy wheel site

Try going to http://www.auraalloywheels.com/
This used to be Aura's official site.

Hey Sivadas,

What to do with this site ??
This site is not official aura alloys's site. It was redirecting to some search engine.

Mods Please Do The Needful.

Cheers,
Mugen_Power.

Mugen_Power,
That was the official Aura site till some time back. And from Hindalco's site also it is pointing to this one. Really don't know how it is pointing to a Chinese site now.

You are right. It is a Search Engine, but Chinese one I believe

The Aura Alloy wheels website was crap anyway, the pictures of the cars that they used to showcase their wheels on were not shot in a studio, the perspective of the wheels in aspect to the car was badly skewed, information and product pictures were non-existent!!!!
They should look up www.tirerack.com as an example!!!

Thumbs down

Inquiring about the domain 'auraalloywheels.com', with status: Expired

The reason its going to search engine is that the domain name registration was not renewed !

Yes, but they were giving correct information on dealers and wheel models. I got the required information from this site only.

Being a Govt. company that is quite possible.

edmund,
if the site was like www.tirerack.com they would have charge aleast 1k more per wheel...man that site must expensive to maintain
but a company like hindalco cant afford to renew a domain its not more than $20 ...it probably more the careless employee maintaining it than money

guys need to get aura for OHC...any recommendation on which 1 will look good?? also any good dealer in pune?

thanks

i just checked the site n its working fine.....By the way...one thing i realised...i wont ever buy Aura alloys !! the site is bad..the wheels are worse.. Would rather go for something more stylish....after all Auras dont come too cheap either...almost at par with all other brand....Try Neo wheels if u wanna go for Indian alloys...or check Hijoin or Prestige....there are other good brands too....I have a 2006 Ikon n am hunting for new tyres n alloys myself...but Aura aint definitely for me...

The site is running fine, however, openDNS and protection that maybe be built into your browsers (FF3 / Chrome) are not letting you access the site since its believed to be a "reported attack site". I'm sure if you turn that protection off temporarily you will be able to access the site - but be careful
