A man drove his Innova car all the way from Shimla to Delhi only to discover at the end of the trip that he had a punctured tyre from the very start. Yet his Innova car was not at all affected by it. How is this possible?

The punctured tire was his spare tire inside the car/below the trunk?

The man was

transporting his Innova on the back of a truck. He "drove his car to Delhi" the same way one might "drive their friend home" - he transported the car by road, but did not actually drive the car itself. Obviously, having a flat tire on a car that's strapped to the back of a truck will make no difference for the journey.


I think that maybe

He punctured the spare tyre (stored in the boot of the car)
