Ok, monday night, I hit something hard going back home. Anyway, rolled into the house, thought it was ok. Next morning...tire is flat. Changed it, waited an hour, flat again. Changed it, put on a new tire, waited 15 minutes, flat. Each time, it had a hole about 1/3 of the way from the valve stem. The third time, it had two holes, almost like a snakebite! Only thing I can find is the little seam where the rim is connected together. Is this what is causing my flats? What is going on here?! This is really getting to me...

I've seen welded seams that were real ugly. A dermel too fixed em.
