Default Alloy wheels for Scorpio

I am going in for new Scorpio with alloy wheels which are company fitted from Mahindra. The salesman was suggesting me to go in for the Aura alloy wheels saying there will be just a difference of 1000 rs.
Are the Aura alloy wheels a better bet than the factory fitted ones by Mahindra. Any other alloy wheel model that you would recommend.
Thanks for your time.

I'm using 16" hijoin wheels. They are awesome and add to the butch look of the Scorpio. Was never a fan of Aura.

You did not like the OE alloy rim?. I thought they were good looking already.

IMO they look quite terrible expecially with the centre portion sticking out.
aura has old designs and neo seems ok.. lenso is supposed to be weak and league has dosent have too many designs for the scorpio. i have plati on my innova and im very happy with them. they have nice designs and the finish is ecellent.

I agree with the centre part.

Ok here is another doubt. Can we change the center part alone to non-stickered one ?.

Hey caraddict1 why dont you go for neo spinner wheels and paint your ride side cladding black that will be one hell of a gangster ride........

if you dont want to opt for spinners there is new range of plati wheels in the market i would suggest you to go in for some Chrome............your rims are nice and you will get good second hand value for those rims....

One suggestion that grill on the scorpio badge is out of the place either remove the grill or the badge...............just my opinion....

Thanks guys. Glad you liked my rims. Since then I have added a hiker bull bar. Will get some pics posted soon.

Hey CHIP, thx for the advice. The badge could not be taken off without damaging the paint job, so left it on. Will try getting it off sometime. I am not a big fan of chrome or the spinners. Even without those, I get a gangster ride
