    Puncture luck

    Or lack of it in our case. out of 4 brand new tyres fitted 12 months ago we now have one original tyre left! Latest one is a screw in the inside of the side wall, 11 weeks since the last one! Thing is if you tried to push a screw in to a tyre I bet you couldn't, so how the **** does it happen? How does a screw go from lying flat on the road to being able to go in at 90 degrees!!!
    Anyone else seem to attract un-repairable punctures? 235/35/19's are hardly cheap

    Latest one is right on the edge of the side wall. Last one may have been fixable Mrs C stopped when she felt a flat but in her infinite wisdom decided to drive about 10 miles to get it fixed and as she had driven so far she ****ed the tyre. And one Motorway blow out, so not unless someone if following us around sticking sharps in to our tyres its just bad luck.

    Do you live near a nail factory or B&Q FFS!! The chances of that randomly happening is more than bad luck Matey!

    Sending you some good luck Karma.
