Help! I changed my tires to the maxxis overdrive 1.75 with kevlar belt for flat protection. But just within 2km i got 3 flats! The spokes in the rims are checked to be ok. Air pressure was within 40-50psi as specification. Anyone know what could I have done wrongly?

* check the inner side walls of ur rims for dent or chips
* are all the 3 flats on a same inner tube? if yes.. change a new one
* check for any objects in the inner parts of ur tires
* is ur rims belt thick enough to cover the spoke nipples..
* air pressure enough for ur weight?

will do it again.

* are all the 3 flats on a same inner tube? if yes.. change a new one
I changed a total of 3 brand new tubes after every flat. 2 of which were maxxis tube. next one was china tube. it burst on both front and back tires

* check for any objects in the inner parts of ur tires
will do it again.

* is ur rims belt thick enough to cover the spoke nipples..
it seem to be ok on my stock mtb tire, did not cause any burst until replacing with this maxxis

* air pressure enough for ur weight?
I don't know this. I am 70kg, the psi is about 40-45 only

air pressure should be fine since im using around the same at 65kg
if none of these is the problem.. i cant think of any issue..

Maybe your wheelset got problem with the new tires too...

Thank you all for the advice. I had the rim tapes changed and it is so far so good after 40km ride Smile

Fantastic service at Bikelink Yishun cheers
