    Alright, I pulled out of the tire shop with my brand new wheels and tires. About two miles out of the shop, there seems to be a ticking noise coming from my left rear tire. Sounds like a rock stuck in between the treads. Thought it was nothing, got home, inspected the tire and found that someone's steak knife blade had penetrated my tire. Took it to Big O' tires, they pulled it out, sprayed water on it, no leaks. People need to keep their steak knives next to their plates, not on the streets. After all, still satisfy with my setup.

    A good 4 inch. The blade went in at a angle, so it didn't do as much damage. Very fortunate the thick meat on them KM2's took most of the damage.
