punctured tyre... knn!!

I suspected a punctured left rear tyre last week when I was pumping up my tyres at the station coz the left rear tyre only showed 20psi while the right rear was still at a healthy 26psi... (I normally pump my rear tyres to 27psi)


drove the car for another week, and went over to a garage to check the left rear tyre pressure... and the worker there confirmed the puncture after getting a 21psi reading on that tyre. apparently, this fucking bolt pierced through the tyre despite being flat at both ends...


this bolt is as big as a straw... knn!!


the car was jacked up, and the puncture was fixed...

anyway, the worker pulled the bolt out, and fix up the puncture with some sticky rubberish thiny... and cost me RM5.


this was how the puncture looked like after being stuffed by the sticky rubberish thing...

looks fragile...better check the patch after a few day usage...i think it should melt and be apart of the tire....
