Nails in Tyres

Hi everyone,

In the last 8 weeks I've had to replace 5 tyres on my car due to them having nails in them! I've no known enemies so I'm starting to think it might be troublemakers. I live on Garthland Drive and was wondering if anyone else in the area has had problems!

Any building work been going on nearby? If so that might explain it as nails easily get dropped and don't get picked up.

I'd also double check with your mechanics...a nail in a tyre is a patch to repair not a new tyre. Unless it's the sidewall which would then tell me it's deliberate.

My flat mate parked her car on Armadale street a couple of weeks ago and had to replace a tyre. The mechanic said it looked like someone had stuck a screwdriver in it. Don't know for sure though.
