Keep in mind that people who daily drive in areas with granite rockfalls, ice and gravel roads may have different experiences.

The town where I live, population 10,000, there are two tire repair places, and they seem to survive fine. People don't talk about a blown tire because it's common. And the guy who owns the vette has tried to sell it for a long time now
