You made a good point, "it is not the size of rocks that wreak havoc with sidewalls, but rather their sharpness". Most of the persons, that I have seen who get flats on dirt/rock roads, travel too fast and do not watch where they are going. Several years ago, we were heading for Eureka Valley from DV. This gal flys past us on that dirt road doing probably 60mph. About 10 minutes later we catch up with her and she is sideways in the road with a completely shredded tire. We changed it for her and told her to slow down. Just before the Eureka Valley turn off, here she was with another wasted tire, side wall ripped out. We asked her if she had slowed down any and she replied no. She got what she was asking for.
