    Three flats in four months?

    Has anyone else had an issue with flats?

    Three different flats in four months? Bullsh|+! I live in San Diego and the roads are pretty good yet I've had three flats on my rear tires. I had the first two repaired (which I don't like) but yesterday's is not fixable. So, I've got to buy two new rear tires tomorrow. :-/ I am also on a budget considering my current situation so I'm rolling the dice a little with what I'm purchasing. Have to hope for the best.

    I had two in one month before. That's why i started getting tires from discount tire direct. I buy the road hazard for $20 per tire and they send you a new one.

    Ya, I think I'm going to Evans tires and they offer the same thing.

    Are you just having bad luck running over things or is it mods cutting tires down?

    I think I'm just having bad luck running stuff over. It seems that all three times have been after a nice spinning of the tires and while leaving rubber I'm picking up nails etc. Got the protection with the new rubber I bought today. Should help.
