Puncture Wounds is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Varrios Los Aztecas leader Cesar Vialpando from Carl's garage in the Doherty district of San Fierro, San Andreas.


Dwaine, Jethro and Carl are all being idle, until Cesar comes in the garage in a Remington. Cesar has found yet another car on the wishlist but the vehicle is too fast and the driver is too quick. Cesar is infuriated since he cannot catch the car. Carl then comes up with an idea to use stinger traps in order to stop the vehicle and have a chance obtain it, as its tires will be punctured.

Carl gets in a Tampa modded with three stinger traps and follows the driver in the desired vehicle, who is working here way towards Whetstone. Carl eventually releases a stinger to pop the tires of the vehicle, which also results in the driver fleeing. Cesar phones him, checking on how it's going. Carl says he already got the vehicle, and says that he'll fix it first. Carl does so, and takes the vehicle back to the garage.


Carl Johnson: Hey man, where you been?

Cesar Vialpando: I tracked one of the cars on our shopping list, but the crazy bitch, she drives like the devil! I've been following her for hours, but she stops for nothing! You'd have to ram her off the road in order to get a chance to get her car and you know a wrecked car is no good to us! I swear she is playing with me!

Carl Johnson: Dude, calm down! If she's playing with you, the she probably won't get one-time involved until it turns ugly. We gotta find a way to stop here, or to slow her down.

Cesar Vialpando: Too bad we can't involve the police, 'cuz then they could pop her crazy bitch tires and bang her crazy bitch ass in jail for being a danger to my sanity!

Carl Johnson: You know what, I think I've got an idea...

(Carl pops out the tires of vehicle, gets out of the modded car, phone rings)

Cesar Vialpando: Hey, CJ, how's it going with that crazy bitch?

Carl Johnson: Popped her! Just about to fix the tires, should be back any minute.

Cesar Vialpando: OK, careful with that puncture repair shit, CJ, it's nasty stuff!

Carl Johnson: Will do. Later, man.

(Carl, fixing the vehicle)

Carl Johnson: Man, this stuff is disgusting. Aw shit, all over my clothes!


The rewards for this mission are $5,000 and an increase in respect. The showroom becomes an asset, and would generate a maximum of $8,000.


  • The license plate on the Tampa reads "L3337 OG"; "l337" is a common internet slang term for "leet" or "elite".
  • The license plate on the Stratum reads "Mr B3NN".
