The term "flat" can be ambiguous. Did the tires just lose air pressure, or did they do something else......like explode, or peel the tread?
Just losing air pressure can be from a variety of reasons, some of which are not indicative of a faulty tire. You can have punctures (yes on more than one tire), bad/leaking valve stems, rim problems, etc.
I encounter a lot of bent valve cores (the spring loaded part in the valve stem) where owners damage them when checking air pressure, especially with certain air pressure gauges. The bent core will seap air out, just deflating the tire. We once had an oil/lube place down the road ruin many cores, until we were finally able to figure out the common denominator to as why we were having so many people come in with the same leaking tire problem. It was their tire pressure gauge doing it, when they checked customer tires.
Without knowing "exactly" what you mean by a flat tire, it's kinda hard for anyone to offer sound advice.
Can you please offer more details? Thanks
