Over the lake vectored to inbound course and cleared visual approach, completed prelndg checklist. Runway in sight. IAS 110 KTS gear down flaps 15 degrees, controller asks for land short (numbers) full flaps IAS 100 KTS incoming pitch aiming for (numbers) flare, wheels touch, plane grabs and pulls to the right. I immediately pull back and roll left aileron on the plane to take weight off the right tire. The plane hopped once, landed on left tire settled on the right and began pulling to the right while apply left brake. The plane stayed on the runway and came to a stop on right edge of runway. The controller told us to taxi off the runway to the right onto the grass. Upon pwring up, the plane did not want to move. A passenger disembarked to see the problem. I assumed a blown tire but wanted a visual on before attempting to proceed. I recall the tower telling me to clear the runway. Also had people waving me off. I recall answering tower we were having trouble getting the plane to move. Upon visual of flat tire, I again ran engine up and slowly taxied off the runway. The flag person told me to shut it down when I was clear of the runway. At this time I shut the airplane down and completed after landing and shut down checklist. It is my opinion that the right main tire was flat or blown out prior to landing or that it blew on initial contact at touchdown. Upon exiting the aircraft, after shut down was when anyone noticed the propeller had struck, sometime after that, we noticed some wrinkles in the skin in the area between nacelle and fuselage.

Title: PVT PLT OF AN SMT TWIN LOST CTL DURING LNDG TOUCHDOWN CAUSING THE ACFT TO 'DROP-IN' RESULTING IN DAMAGE TO THE R MAIN GEAR TIRE (BLOWN OUT), PROP AND THE WING WRINKLED BTWN THE FUSELAGE AND THE ENG NACELLE.
Narrative: OVER THE LAKE VECTORED TO INBOUND COURSE AND CLRED VISUAL APCH, COMPLETED PRELNDG CHKLIST. RWY IN SIGHT. IAS 110 KTS GEAR DOWN FLAPS 15 DEGS, CTLR ASKS FOR LAND SHORT (NUMBERS) FULL FLAPS IAS 100 KTS INCOMING PITCH AIMING FOR (NUMBERS) FLARE, WHEELS TOUCH, PLANE GRABS AND PULLS TO THE R. I IMMEDIATELY PULL BACK AND ROLL L AILERON ON THE PLANE TO TAKE WT OFF THE R TIRE. THE PLANE HOPPED ONCE, LANDED ON L TIRE SETTLED ON THE R AND BEGAN PULLING TO THE R WHILE APPLY L BRAKE. THE PLANE STAYED ON THE RWY AND CAME TO A STOP ON R EDGE OF RWY. THE CTLR TOLD US TO TAXI OFF THE RWY TO THE R ONTO THE GRASS. UPON PWRING UP, THE PLANE DID NOT WANT TO MOVE. A PAX DISEMBARKED TO SEE THE PROB. I ASSUMED A BLOWN TIRE BUT WANTED A VISUAL ON BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO PROCEED. I RECALL THE TWR TELLING ME TO CLR THE RWY. ALSO HAD PEOPLE WAVING ME OFF. I RECALL ANSWERING TWR WE WERE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THE PLANE TO MOVE. UPON VISUAL OF FLAT TIRE, I AGAIN RAN ENG UP AND SLOWLY TAXIED OFF THE RWY. THE FLAG PERSON TOLD ME TO SHUT IT DOWN WHEN I WAS CLR OF THE RWY. AT THIS TIME I SHUT THE AIRPLANE DOWN AND COMPLETED AFTER LNDG AND SHUT DOWN CHKLIST. IT IS MY OPINION THAT THE R MAIN TIRE WAS FLAT OR BLOWN OUT PRIOR TO LNDG OR THAT IT BLEW ON INITIAL CONTACT AT TOUCHDOWN. UPON EXITING THE ACFT, AFTER SHUT DOWN WAS WHEN ANYONE NOTICED THE PROP HAD STRUCK, SOMETIME AFTER THAT, WE NOTICED SOME WRINKLES IN THE SKIN IN THE AREA BTWN NACELLE AND FUSELAGE.
