Ok I just bought my Dunlop208 on 6-21-05 couldn't ride last week :eh: cause I picked up some kind of nail from , so I take it to cycle gear cause I have a road hazard warranty get my new tire no problem! I get to work yesterday and WTF I find a small rock shape like a shark tooth jamed into the dead center of my tire which doesn't even have a 100 miles on it yet! Has any one had a problem with 208's picking up nails, rock, ect.... in them this easy or is it just me??

Re: Is just me or has this happen to you??

I picked up a screw in my 207 and one in my truck tire (oddly enough both were wood screws...) in the span of a week. I think its near impossible to avoid construction junk in this town!
