on the road or in dirt? I ran those rims all last season and never had one flat so it's probably your tyre pressure or tyre seating incorrectly?

Twice in the dirt, and once on the road. Im running about 65 to 70 psi. Should i be running more?
no, 70 psi is plenty !!climbo

I ran about 60 psi for cross racing. Sounds like the problem could be with the tyre or in the rim. Is the tyre seated properly on the rim? How about the rim tape? is it exposing the rim anywhere? You might have to check where the pinch is coming from by inspecting the tubes. If it is in the same place each time it could be something inside your rim or tyre?
