Default anyone ever get not 1, not 2, but 3 flat tires at once?

i drive a crappy car and the tires are near bald, the next day i go take a look at my car and see that 3 tires are flat. i look closely but i dont see any slashes or stab marks. do you think it could be flat from running over something sharp the day before or is the stab/slash wound hard to notice?

i guess im going to have to run some soapy water and see where the hole is?

Did you recently run from the Police? Maybe the spike strip got you...

well i knew that I have to get a new car anyways, therefore i didnt want to dump any money in the car. its a 89 dodge raider 4x4 v6 that i bought from someone close to 2 yrs ago for 1k bucks. i thought id sell it or maybe even give it away, but now with 3 flat tires and a starter that is starting to go bad, i may have to ask the garbage man if they can take it. lol

it served its purpose( had to save money), and now its time to buy a new car.

Yep, I got 3 flat tires all at once before....

of course it was because I ran into and up on to a very sharp curb that killed 3 tires and 3 rims. Man that sucked. It was at 3am in the middle of a snowstorm and AAA didn't show up until 8:30am. I hate them.

You can get tires at a junkyard for $10-$20 each. They don't need to be the same brand, but the same diameter usually helps.

Your tires are probably trying to save your life by rendering your car undriveable without new shoes.

Driving on bald tires is playing Russian Roulette. The upshot is that if you off yourself on bald tires, you no longer need to worry about getting a new ride.

It hasn't occurred to you that somebody probably did this to your car deliberately?

Three flats at once is not likely even on balding tires...unless you've had a night of "dukes of hazzard" driving.

5 between the three of us.

This is what happens when you pick up a nail and get a slow leak and it goes flat on the highway. The tire started rubbing on the strut and finally just exploded.

I had all four tires blow up on me once after I went over some spike-strips that "La Migra" set up.

theyve probably been going flat for while now. Maybe a slow leak from a slightly bent rim.
