Someone is flattening my tire on purpose! What to do?

By | October 17, 2010

I woke up this morning intending to go to work. and i found out that my left front tire was flat.

I had no one to help me change the tire since it had to be changed in the garage. We had no other available car to take me to work. I had to miss work today and i have a deadline for a project this week. I am not happy.

The thing is, yesterday my husband was driving my car and he had a flat tire. He took the car to the garage and they changed two of the tires?

And then we drove the car until 10 PM yesterday. Came back home. It was fine and nothing was wrong with it. 6 AM and the tire is flat? and you know what?

When they took it to the garage, the tire was absolutely fine. It was not punctured. The tire was emptied from the air on PURPOSE! and this is not the FIRST time!

A while back i suffered the same fate to my old car. Same tire, the one between cars so whomever was emptiying the tires out of air was crouching hidden between cars… for 3 weeks in a row my car tires were emptied out of air?

Now it had started again!!! and i am NOT happy! I am quite scared actually! Who would want to empty my car from it’s air? Why only my car? Why not any other car standing there? I have no enemies… and i cannot imagine anyone i know driving all the way to my house after 10 pm to flatten my car tire? WHY… WHO? No seriously why?

Esh hal la3ana? Why did i have to miss work today? Why?

and what am i supposed to do? How do i ensure that this never happens again? Do i install cameras? This is serious! This is a car i am driving on the road! How irresponsible can you be to flatten someone’s tire?! Over and Over again?!

Have you ever been in this situation? What do you think i should do?

    ay shaay!!
    who would do that :O

  2. doona says:

    next time fill the tire with carbon monoxide, then that person should be passed out on the floor next to the tire for some time. or dead. both will do ;.p

  3. i can sense some mad neighbours 😛 or just someone jealous 😉

    I had the same thing happen to me before, same tire, constantly going flat (left rear tire).

    Anyway, it turns out two things could have caused it.

    Either damaged rims, or the inside of the rims (area that seals with the tire was extremely dirty with dust and stuff and it was not sealing properly) both cause air to slowly go out of the tire so it seems like deliberate sabotage.

    Check those two things out, could be your mystery problem.

      They checked it out… it’s not likely that it’s the cause.
      and add to it the fact that it happened to my previous car more than once, always to the exact same tire…

      EXACTLY! What if i didnt know and i drove to the highway?!
      Fawtha?

      In the past i heard about neighbours who would have naughty kids that would scrape the car bodies… but this? It’s going a step too far !!!

  7. Sarah says:

    Yeah a couple of years ago every car we had and every car my uncle (who is our neighbour) had got scraped if left outside (instead of inside a closed garage). We never caught the culprit :(

    • danderma says:

      wow! That’s mean!!!

      I guess you should have some cameras installed as well… why would people do that is beyond me!

    you do know i have no school or anything right? ill just wait for the the guy all night and talk business (with my fists) 😉

    Perhaps its not personal. Do you think it is where you are parking your car? Maybe the perpetrator thinks you are parking in their parking place? Are you parking in a spot where it makes it hard for another vehicle to get out of their spot?

    • danderma says:

      I am parked in the pavement of my parents house in our designated parking areas. Where are blocking no body nor are we preventing anyone from using their own parking in their own houses.

    The same thing is happening to me! We only have one car that my mom and I have to share and we get a flat tire at least once a month. Always a different one though. This past month we’ve had 3!
    We suspect it’s my “dad”. My parents are divorced and he is a crazy person and (pardon my language) a bastard. We have no way of proving he’s doing it though, and it’s a scary situation. He just denies it.
    We need to somehow put a camera on our car or something, but I was looking some up on the internet and they can be pretty expensive.

    • danderma says:

      Oh my! I guess putting a camera might work! Try and jot down the approximate dates of when this is happening and maybe then it will help you capture whomever the culprit is! May god be with you!

    Interesting my Sister’s car Tire got flat the moment she drove it out of our driveway and the one in front of our house his front wheel tire is flat and the green car next door his car is getting towed maybe flat tire too… hmm… it all happen in the same time :/ what is going on? I better start investing on Surveillance Camera and catch the culprit.

    • danderma says:

      It could be a neighbor out for revenge. Or some bored teenagers with nothing better to do. I say invest in a camera for sure at least you’d know what’s going on.
