comment “wound” on the tire side
Re: booting - it's a temporary measure to get you home. If it's a bad puncture (hole or slice in the tire) and all you've got is a spare tube, use a bank note, candy wrapper, or similar folded up and properly fitted between the tire and tube. Otherwise the tube will protrude from the hole in the sidewall and if it doesn't pop, something will puncture the protruding tube.

comment Why do my tires keep losing air, even after having the tubes replaced?
+1 re: tiny piece of wire. Minuscule filaments can become embedded in the tire and only present themselves rolling under high pressure (that is, you won't find them running your thumb around the inside of the tire.) +1 to mattnz for the technique to find the things!
