    I had a flat tire not long ago in the 2. I was following Marshall, but some how he didn't see me pull over.

    Mine was courtesy of the paving contractor that the WV DOT was using to pave I-64. They had cut the pavement down right at an expansion joint on a bridge. It severely damaged the sidewall but didn't immediate go down. That happened on the way home from work.

    Too many to count. For some reason my beads are no longer locking on the rims fully, so every couple of days I walk out to a flat tire or two.

    I have had one on the Buick. I replaced it, then got a nail in the new one and plugged it.

    I replaced one tire for chunking. Again, on the Buick.

    I have a slow leaker on Mudhoney. I haven't driven her in a year, and it is about halfway flat.

    Chaos has two baldies, but no flats.

    Millie has good tires.

    I've only ever had one flat tire in 30+ years of a driving and well over 60 cars owned. That one was also a slow leak that only required a plug.
    My mom and dad on the other hand have had 3 this year and they only drive about 3k miles a year between the both of them.
