Default Tata Alloys

Hi guys,
I saw tata branded alloys at the showroom. They were okay to look at, but has anybody used them long term? How good are they in terms of reliability and VFM?

I think they are branded alloys made by Aura/Neo or some other Indian company with the Tata Logo.
They should be reliable and available but loose but i am not sure about warranty which if they do not give it is better to get from outside.
They were expensive however and you generally get imported rims in that much. (according to the acc. price list present with me).

I have the same Aura alloys on my car (with the Tata logo on it) which seem to be pretty good
bhp: I got them from the dealer though when I took delivery of the car...so how much is the difference in price any idea?

Abhay,
In Lamington Road Bombay, Imported alloys are for 14K so i am guessing that the Indian Alloys should be less then 12K.

Do alloy wheels have the vehicle manufacturer log in the center rather than their own brand names. I dont want to have something else.

Do the car maufacturers sell alloys as options for all cars?

Aura and Neo are 2 OE manufacturers of Alloy wheels for most Car companies in India... Aura being the major market share holder as compared to Neo.. When the rims are sold as OE spares then they will have car company logo on it and when its bought from the after market shops/ tyre shops then it will have Aura/Neo logo on it ...
