Drive fast or slow is not the problem. You cruise 30km/h if it happens, it happens.

thanks guys for the great input. hopefully i can trade it in.. worst case scenario is to get a new one.

i got anothr suggestion frm a friend.. my old back tyres needs replacement soon. so ill change tat and bring it to the front.. this "puncture" tyres ill put behind.. the whole idea is to obtain steering control. which in this case if my front blows i hv none..

any critics for my above statement? (my back two tyres hv very little thread left)

Maybe still can be repaired, if the puncture go thru the steel belt on top. Ask for patch repair, about RM15-20, not the RM5 repair.

If kena nail at thread area is still ok, coz got the steel wire on top that stop the tyre from getting deformed. But of coz get the patch repair, not the RM5 repair. RM5 repair meant only as temporary solution before getting proper repair.

If puncture at the side, and if even one of the string (which made of textile) is torn, after some time it will have like pimple coz the side is always subjected to flexing. And from the pimple, the rubber might torn, or in some extreme cases might lead to blow up.

It's not balance.
