You know...hiring a hitman would probs be easier and cheaper...

check the walls of the tyres for cracking...how old are the tyres would you say?

Don't worry
what goes around comes around
they'll get theirs :thumbsup:

24 hours being flat are extremely unlikey to have damage. Weeks/Months maybe. Not a few hours.

If you drove while flat, then their is a good chance they are damaged.

theyve been pumped up but havent used that car yet

What I was thinking was maybe they'd put tacks in your tyres resulting in slow punctures...but if theyve been up for a while, it could have just been kids at the valves...just pop to the petrol station and check the pressures
