    My wife and I suffered this 3 years ago, a puncture in a tyre on her car and two in mine, one in the tread and one in the wall- this one costing me a new tyre. Normally our cars are in a closed garage but due to work at our house they were parked in the street. These incidents appeared malicious to me but the tyre company said it was likely to be just bad luck as it is difficult to insert screws into tyres. As it happens just over a week ago, one of our cars had a repeat of the issue & a new tyre was required.
