Hi All, I have a punto sport and it came with apollo acelere. I had just been to B'lore from Chennai. When I reached B'lore, I had a puncture on the left rear and while fixing it, it was found that the tyre had a damage in the sidewall apart from the puncture on the surface. Fixed both the puncture using the normal way for tubeless tyre and then came back. Until now the fix in the sidewall is holding. When I came back to Chennai, I took the car to office. While taking the car from office in the evening, the rear right was punctured. Changed to the spare wheel and drove home. I had to visit the service station for steering mounted controls problem. I asked them to fix the puncture and it was again found that there was damage in the sidewall and that was the only puncture. The guys told me to raise a complaint with apollo and the guy came to check the tyre. As usual, they say its not a manufacturing defect. How can the sidewall of the tyre be so flimsy? Is this what the quality of apollo acelere tyres are? Am really annoyed and since the damage is in the sidewall, I can't be confident on how long the fix will hold. I might have to change the tyres and it would be all four. I also saw the reviews for apollo tyres and they have been many such sidewalls damage complaints and inaction by apollo. I had a previous car with good year GPS2 and they lasted for 44K kms. There would be odd punctures, but sidewall damage never happened. I would strongly ask guys to be cautious from taking apollo, though others may have different opinions. Am now thinking about changing to Bridgestone or Michelin.
