Default Strangest thing I've found in one of my tire's yet.

A Torx bit! WTH!?








(yes, that's a blood blister on my finger (slipped with leatherman trying to pull bit out of tire )

Horray for patch kits and air compressors!

This is not a topic to brag about...but I have some pretty ****ty luck when it comes to picking stuff up in my tires...

Last year I ran over a pair of scissors and both blades punctured the tire...and then 6 months later I ran over a screw driver (this one was plug-able)...and now I have a nail in my tire...

Am I a bad driver or what?

I can't believe you got a FREE pair of scissors and you're complaining. Let alone a new screw driver...

slipping pliars or wrenches are the number 1 cause of my hand or arm cuts.
