    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.

    This is a pretty straight forward achievement.

    At any point in the game, go on the streets, equip your pistol, and go to a busy intersection and start shooting out tires on as many cars as possible. Shoot out a tire on 15 different cars for the achievement.

    Citizens may start calling the cops on you while you are going for this. I would recommend killing them or using a Com Jam in order to block the call.

    Keep in mind that this achievement is possible to be done over the course of the entire game, or during digital trips as well.

    I found another easy place to find it was in the very last mission in act 1. Once you leave the prison and walk outside you are on top of the car garage and there was about 6 or 7 cop cars plus a few other random cars scattered throughout the garage. I just shot out one tire from each car but for some reason was not at 10 so i killed myself and shot out the first cop tire and i got it. Let me know if this works for any of you guys.
