You had to say that!! I was talking to one of my buddies about how long it's been since I had a flat. Monday night the 20th (right before Christmas) my wife and I hit something in the road and immediately lost the left rear tire on or Jeep. My wife walked down the street and found what had ripped our tire open while I put the spare on. It was a generic multitool like a leatherman. Destroyed the tire!
