Got a 2nd puncture within a month?

I got a 2nd tyre puncture within a month, I don't know why it is happening since I regularly pump my tyres so the pressure is never low. Are my tires rubbish? I only had them for 3 months so they aren't old. I am contemplating changing my tyres at this point.

What are the tyres? It's been wet around London the last few days for the first time in ages so there'll be lots of debris on the roads. You probably got unlucky

I can't remember when I actually last got a puncture (I only seem to have to replace tubes due to knackered valves :rolleyes:)

I've had 2 punctures in 1 second.
Hit a pothole and it took both tyres out.

As with all punctures, you need to identify the cause and then decide if there is a weakness in the tyre or tube or rim.

What model of tyres are they? Some are really susceptible / basic, others are fine.

This time of year I swap bikes - my 'best' has Contintental GP4000/5000 tyres on and the 'winter' bike has Continental's GP 4 Seasons. Neither are cheap but they tend not to get punctures.
