Well lightin I think if your tires are full of water to that point I'd say you need to be a little more careful with your tires when you wash them
Yeah it might seem like punching vent holes in the tire would let dirt and water inside easier, but it just as easily gives it a way back out again. Running a hole in the rim shell gives dirt & water a place to get in but no way out. I boiled off a pair of 1/8th Buggy tires that wre only vented through the rim once because it felt like the foams had turned to stone. As soon as the glue bead of the tire started coming loose the pot of boiling water turned into a pot of boiling mud.
And if you're drilling holes large enough to affect the grip of the tread...ok that'd have to be like a 1/2" spade bit or something...
