It has only happened when i've had no choice but to plow (slowly) through...
Don't know what everyone else thinks about used tyres but I just fitted (on the rear end) a pair of goodyear EV-2 eagle vector 205 55 16 for £67 delivered with 6mm on each tyre left. They have no puncture repairs or scuffs or scrapes.
