  1. Guys I had a heart break today. My baby's foot is hurt and wounded. The front left alloy had deep scratches I noticed today. I have no idea how this had happened. I have captured the scratches in my mobile. Will be uploading shortly. I am worried if this could become a threat to safety. I am sad from the morning. Though my friends says this is just a scratch, I am not convinced until I hear it from TFI.

    Cosmetic scratches are noting to worry about - they are not a safety hazard.

    Usually alloys are really strong, and can withstand bumps and ditches which we come across in regular life. If you see other forums, there are many people who use alloy wheels in their off road going jeeps and gypsys.

    Unless your alloy is chipped, there is no need of concern. Do upload the pictures.

    Though cosmetically this looks bad, there is nothing to worry about the structural integrity of the wheels, Srida.

    OT: Did you change your OEM tyre? I thought all Emo Pack came shod with Appolo Accelers.

    Even on my cars alloys has some scratches
  6. No Anoop I didnt change the Tyres. These are stock. I checked with the Sales Exec. I was told that only from the july models the tryes are appolo.

    So shouldn't I worry about the safety with this scratches on the alloys?

    There is absolutely nothing to worry.

    But the info your sales rep have given is wrong - we have a 2011 april last\may first purchased GP emo+ in our apartment and it came with Appolo Accelers only.

    Which is the manufacturing month of your car?

    I hope you checked the VIN number and confirmed the year-month before you brought the car.

    Srida.. you are worried because you are enjoying the beauty of your new car day by day and you are enjoying it in detail. I am having wheel cups on my car and I was shocked to see some scratches like those of yours which I am unaware of how it happened. There is nothing to worry about the scratches on your alloys. I know how it feels, but you really can't help it out.
