Hi amoghmasur,

Good that you found a source for the tubes!

You never wrote whether the punctures were due to external objects or were due to tube joints giving way! If they are punctures due to external sources, changing tubes may not help.

Hey guys, latest news. It seems like my car is destined for punctures. I had all the tubes changed about a month back. My car was running fine until about a day back. I was on the way back from office and guess what??? Correct, my tyres got punctured. Thats right, tyres. The rear right one and the front left one. Don't ask me how because I have no idea. I was shown two sharp nails on each of the tyres while getting the punctures repaired. They were small hard ones but thankfully both tubes were not badly damaged. The puncture was fixed and my wallet lightened to the tune of Rs. Hundred. Seems like nothing will get me out of harms way.
