  1. Did you drive for some distance with busted tire? why? I think alloy would have got damaged in the process.

    Sat,
    when the tire bursted the road was very bad,after getting down the car foound that the tire was totally gone,meanwhile just found that i have crossed a village and went back to the same place which was just half a kilometer.i was in mid of journey and still to travel more than 600 Kms.
    After that the drive was total cautious because no spare tire :( and with the new spare tire i had to maintain speed atleast 70 Kmph(run-in period for spare tire).
    i didnt found any major damage to the alloys,still i have to check with the wheel alignment shop for any bent/out.

    now i'm really confident about the behaviour of tires after 40K Kms i.e. anything can happen.

    decided to change all the GT3(Done 45K Kms),but decided to do in installments hence changed front tires with 195/65/R15 from 195/60/R15. Rear tires still with 195/60/R15.
    Opted Tire profile change for more GC.

    Last week my Punto completed 52000 KMS within 1 year 9 months.
    Most of the drive was highway driving, never ever given me any kind off problem except for those of tires.
    MJD always at its best when it comes to long run and continous drives with comfort and pleasure.

    At that rate, I don't think i'll ever be able to beat you.

    No Leh Ladakh Plans. I need to go to Mount Abu in a few months, but i'l probably go by Flight. Would have loved to drive all the way but too much time will be lost in driving up and down.

  10. Ganges,

    You should have got Intercooler,MAP and Intake manifold cleaned as well, Just cleaning EGR is not good enough.
