Rider weight and tire pressure, along with how much of the 23, 25 or 28 size tire meets the road has a significant impact on flats. I suspect there are many less flats on 38’s as they carry much less pressure and are much thicker and often have more tread than a true road bike tire. Sorry, but there is no way a 38 fits on my bike. I know this is weird, but I’ve never had a flat on the 4″ tires on my fatty.
