OP, have you spun the wheel with the tire partially inflated to make sure the little line on the tire just above the rim doesn't hop or fall in under the rim? (The line; you can see it in your photo ~1/4" above the edge of the tire.) Won't help with the thorns, but it is a very simple tool to avoid a lot of problems.
