    My first flat tire luckily happened a mile from my house. I have another flat tire. This was after getting new wheels since they couldn't find the source of the problem with the first flat and said the tire was okay and wheel was leaking.

    This second flat happened overnight and the car is in my driveway. After the first incident, I bought a full size tire and extra wheel to match my other wheels.

    Flats can happen. Have a plan.

    I keep a tire repair kit in my car. Rather I don’t need it than I don’t have it.

    I walk 4 miles every day and you would not believe how many nails I pick up in the road every day.

    Same here, but more screws than nails.

    And a few weeks ago, my wife picked up a 3/16" spade bit. With her right rear tire. :mad:

    Our local Rona hardware store and lumber yard sometimes store a few pallets of lumber in the parking lot, leave these oversized staples through plastic caps strewn all over certain areas. :eek:
