Apart from sorting out the problem(s) with the inner tubes, flats from punctures by road debris may be greatly minimized or even eliminated by using puncture-resistant tires (eg, Schwalbe Marathon Plus) or tire liners. I use both these strategies: Marathon Plus on my "nice-weather" bike, and tire liners inside the studded tires of my "winter" bike. I have not had a flat from a puncture in at least 10 years.
