According to Advan neovas users its prone to puntures as it has got soft compound.

For that i am planning to install slime liquid inside it, what say guys?
some say its effective and some say its useless.

check for the link here.
Slime compact flat tire repair and inflation system

currently this link is not working, but google for slime you get to know a lot about it.

I would say stay away from this Slime and related stuff.

Punctures are somewhat frequent on the Advans, but they usually happen in the centre of the tread. Being a tubeless tyre, y ou dont need to stop instantly. You can continue to drive and just keep refilling air until you are ready to get it repaired.

Kartik Kumar had a puncture and didnt know it until the tyres were removed for Wheel balancing. That was when a technician noticed the nail. Same happened to the Advans on my dad's car. Didnt know it was a puncture and found it only when it was removed for balancing.

Slime and stuff could lead to unnecessary wobbling at high speeds which is something you surely can do without.

No dude, Infact harrie is enjoying in coimbatore instead of me doing it.

I got the loan apporval yesterday at the rate of 10%, sad part is i had to sign in 100 places to get the formalities done.
