Driving over broken glass

This is probably a dumb question but could I get a flat by driving over broken glass in a parking lot? One of the areas I park in some times has small bits of broken glass. I have actually cleaned some of it up myself just because I park there. It pisses me off that assholes do this but I cannot control what others do.
Thx for any advice

Sure if it's sticking up long jagged pieces. But if it's lying flat I seriously doubt it. Just make sure you don't spin the tires in it. I hate that shit too.

What offset are your wheels? Need to know in order to properly answer.

Also, we need to know if the wheels are steel or aluminum.

Why is there so much broken glass where you park? Is it from window smash auto burgs? If so maybe you should re evaluate where your parking your truck. But no, small pieces of broken glass will not flatten your tires.

Driving over broken glass

I worked in a tire shop for many years I never had a flat tire come in because of glass. Never. Is it possible. Sure but I've never seen it yet

I also worked in a tire shop for about 4 years and I only saw it like twice. Both were on pretty bald car tires as well. I saw waaaay more cases of sticks and thorns puncturing tires than glass.
