    will Hookworms help me get rid off such flats?


    That's Maxxis High Roller Semi Slicks

    these tires are just like 2-3 weeks old and i already got 2 flats.. in both cases it was glass..

    i ride mostly in the city, and it's a lot of shattered glass around here

    No they won't, it won't even make a difference. Glass is glass.

    Would it be safe to use tubeless for DH/freeride? I wouldn't think so.

    I used to run Tubeless and they have a tendency to release alot of air at odd times, but if its just glass then find some old MTB tyers and line the inside of ur semi-slicks with them, my friends who had the same problem did this and haven't had a flat since, well not from just riding over glass anyway.
