the ASS wont even know when and where the wheels were aligned. and even if you tell them, it will not void warranty.
Also any alternate number.
No one picks up the phone on this number
In case they do nor do Tyre punctures, Can I get the Tubeless Tyre puncture repaired from any Roadside corner tyre repair shop also or is it advisable to get it done only from a good shop?
Thanks for advising
One more clarification.
On the net it says that the tubeless tyre repair can be done in 2 ways.
What Is the Best Way to Repair a Slow Leak in a Tire? | eHow.com
1st only from the outside of the Tyre using the tool & the puncture strip
The 2nd is by removing the tyre from the rim & repairing it from inside also along with the outside.
Which method should be preferably adopted & do the professional tyre repairers agree to use either of the methods as per our request ?

(got these numbers from the net with great difficulty so I thought that others may find it useful)
They are asking for Rs 100/- for the normal outside repair only & Rs 350/- in case it in necessary for an inside + outside repair job
This is how I made my Alloy wheel dream come true. As the car itself was bought for 25K, didnt want to spend another 18K on a new set of alloys. Grabbed a set of 5 used alloys on OLX (Hyderabad) for 7K. Got them shipped to Pune by my (late) brother.
As it was evident that the 100 PCD & 62 mm Hub dia will not match on the 118NE's 98 PCD and 58mm hub, I got 5 rings made out of seamless MS tubes. With a piece of sand paper the Alloy wheel hub was cleaned. After applying little oil into the hub surface I gently hammered the ring into the wheel, unlike Tadu where he did it on the vehicle side.
The second part is to get through the 2 mm offset on the PCD. Yes, Wobble washers solved the problem. But you dont get them ready made. Neither Alloy wheel shops were aware of such a thing. So took out my vernier and started with the measurements. Then suddenly it struck in my mind that M-800 used wheel nuts & not bolts. Bought 16 Nuts from a spare parts shop and headed straight to the Lathe guy (Manoj)who did the hub ring. The 118 NE uses a M12 X 1.25 bolt for the wheels. So bored the nut to 13 mm and chopped of anothe 8 mm from the nut. So finally it become the wobble washer. The bolts used were M-800 rear shocker bolts which were long enough and were of the same 8.8 grade. So far done with fitment.
Fiat cars are always with surprises. Due to the variation on the ET, the front rims were fouling with the A-arm are steering extremes. Based on my measurements the rim needed a spacer for about 7 mm. This time, went to a industrial pipes shops and bought 2 pipe flanges, each 15 mm thick, 60 mm centre holes and 4 holes of 14mm dia spaced on a 100 mm PCD. The front wheel already had a 5 mm spacer. This spacer was replaced by the above said flange, ofcourse after machining down to 12 mm. And there you go. Attached the pics for reference.
