    the tire was puncutred/the tire went flat

    When the tire/tyre of you car is/gets punctured.

    The tire/tyre wasn't punctured.
    The tire/tyire didn't get punctured.
    The tire/tyre didn't go flat.

    I am talking about the tire/tyre here. I am using it without car. Because we normally say, "My car has a flat tire/tyre".

    Tell me about the grammatically correct usage, that is also natural.

    Re: the tire was puncutred/the tire went flat

    They're all good. You can also say that it wasn't flat.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
