well. were you riding on glass or something? Or maybe you used a old inner tube? Or are you messing it up when you put the tire on?? because they are kinda hard to put on for me.

wrap your inner rim in electrical tape once per side, you should do both sides (left an right), it could jet be the rim strip

Try running your finger around the inside rim sometimes when you pry the tire off you can scratch the inside of the rim resulting in a small barb in the rim which will pop the tube all the time and if this is the case run sandpaper around the inside of the rim this happened to me before because of using a butter knife to get tire off

If I never see another e.t. In a pro edit it'd be too soon

I had a ghetto Odyssey Aiken P-Lyte I found off the street. I electrical'd taped the hell outta it and although I never rode it, it should work smile

I had mine for 2 months and rode it to like 85% tread. Never had a single flat or needed more air. Those things were a bitch to get on and off though. I really regret trading that thing along with my FAF-K folding..

Maybe something pointy fell in the tire when installing them?
Or you rode over some glass.
