    This can be obtained by shooting the tires on any cars. Moving cars and parked cars.

    You can only shoot 1 tire per car, so shooting all 4 tires on the same car, only counts as 1 towards the achievement.

    The best place I can recommend is a multi-storey car park/parking lot and you should be able to get a good number of cars without alerting any civilians/police. (Use a silenced weapon for best results)

    Otherwise, you can run out into a busy street and just shoot any cars you see. Although this can negatively impact your reputation.

    I'd suggest after the first mission where you have to kill your sisters "crank" caller. After that mission is completed, back out to the menu and play again, you will start out at the hotel you live in with a silenced gun with 350 bullets, jump down in the street and just start shooting out the tires of ANY parked or moving vehicle until this achievment pops up. Remember! Only one tire per car

    The easiest method and one that won't affect your rep, is to do it in the spider-tank mini game. If you're blasting away with the mini gun and blowing up cars, odds are you'll hit a tire. I wasn't even trying for it and got it after 2 games of spider-tank.
