2 flats? How are the tires leaking? I had a problem before with my Catera. The rims did not give a good bead for the tires to seal on. This was corrected by the mechanic putting some pink sloppy sealant stuff around the rim before putting the tire on. I'm assuming you have either a 30 or 35 size wall on your tire. These tires are hard to install since there's not much rubber to work with. Make sure you're going to a good shop that knows how to deal with the low profile tires.

If the tire just blew out it could have happen for one of several reasons. Did it blow out like explode or did it "rub off?" I had a tire come off the bead on my catera when I was on the hwy going about 80mph. Here's a couple of pics to show you what happened to it. When I went to get the tire replaced the guy at the shop showed me where the bead on the rim was worn down to nothing and that's what caused the tire to slip. If this is what happened to you, you need a new rim ASAP.
