    @hamster : the problem is the with the tiers for sure. Because thats the only thing that can give a poor ride quality.

    How many KM have you done with your car?

    Yes I do get some kind of wierd noise when I drive with my window open. I mostly drive from Delhi to Gurgaon and over all road condition is good barring some bad patches in Delhi Cantt. sector and Gurgaon City.

    @hamster: well. ...my recommendations may sound a bit heavy on your pocket.... I suggest replace the tiers with preferably Bridgestone or Continental brand........ as the stock tyres will continue to trouble you and hurt your car in long run..... Goodyear have always been trouble. .. even a multibrand tire store does not recommended them.

    How many punctures have you faced in driving these 20K kms?

    Guess I will have to bite the bullet and buy new tyres. But I was thinking if I can run these tyres for another 10K with a restricted speed limit of 80 Km/hr and then change these tyres.Will this also hurt my car in longer run?

    You may use your tires for another 4 - 5 K kms under controlled usage...but you will have to get wheel alignment and balancing done more frequently...say every 2500 KMs

    How many punctures have you faced in driving these 20K kms?

    Alright, thanks I will take care of it.

    I have had one puncture up till now and that too because of some iron rod coming out of pot hole which made a big hole in tyre and is irrepiarable.
