lol always the way! Its like punctures, you never get them on a warm sunny day, its got to be cold and raining.

A double failure that quickly is unusual though and could be the sign of a corroding ground point somewhere.

I remember it well! 2 Flat tyres, a headlight and cracked window caused by a scaffolding board on the M6. It was -4 and hailing / snowing so I feel your pain!!
