Flat tires

Over the years, flat tires seems to be the norm with these ITP Mud Lites on my Teryx, all due to locust thorns. Now I’ve moved to Illinois, and don’t have those here. Been nice to be away from flat tires, then suddenly about a month ago, it all changes.

I’ve had three flats on my right front tire over the last month. Every flat has been a clean puncture, like done with an ice pick. If my Teryx wasn’t garaged, I’d wonder. The tire goes flat quick…air really gushes out. To me it’s classical nail…but repeatedly? On the same tire?...and none of the others? There isn’t anything around the puncture. Whatever is causing it is not there.

This last flat was after a short ride to the road…1/2 mile…to put some trash in the dumpster, then back to the barn. And it was dead stone flat when I got back. I walked the entire area I rode and found nothing. . Is there anyway a nail could have been run all the way into the tire, and now causing repeated flats from inside the tire?
