Agreed P3T3R. These must be the intended nature of these products. However, does that means, these products would NEVER have any defects or fail at all? My point is, defects do happen (or bound to be) in any products, irrespective of their intended nature.
I do agree that punctures are inevitable, but the frequency matters. In my life (or anyone) wouldn’t have heard such occurrence of Multiple Punctures in a single tyre, which is happening to me now. That makes me to speculate the matter. There can be many reasons like…
1. Under Inflation – Either not inflated to the recommended pressure, or Slow Deflation due to the 1st puncture which would have made it easier for the other nails / objects.
2. Intentionally Planted Nails – Generally done by Puncture Walas to opportune themselves. This was covered as an article in Times Mirror as well.
3. Defects – May be the Tyre is defective because of the Material / Content or Composition or in any other possible reasons. Experts can think of it better.
1st two reasons are generally possible, in which, the latter is condemnable but disastrous. Thus it makes me to think more in the 3rd point.
