I get the feeling that most people around here just don't care that Hyundai provides them with a nice set of warranty pamphlets, litigation information, and two versions of the owner's manual, not to mention a complete booklet of maintenance scheduling....

...*sigh*...

Suuuuuuure... and yes, the tires are covered for manufacturing defects. If you hit a pothole or nail or something, you're SOL. Just take it to the dealer and they'll tell you if you're covered.

Oh yeah, and if you want a VERY specific answer, just go to tirerack.com, put in your model and trim, look up the OE tire manufacturer and go to their website to see their warranty information. Since you haven't posted what trim you drive, it's either Hankook or Kumho.

Oh, and you should also know that periods are a very valuable asset within the sentence structure. :thumbsup:

I worked for Goodyear back in the late 80's early 90's. The information I'll post is based on the state of industry at that time. But I doubt it's changed much.

First, totally disregard whatever the dealer tells you. The tires are handled by a separate warranty and the dealer will not handle the warranty claim. They will smile at you and tell you that it sure looks like a warranty problem, but, you need to take it to a tire dealer to make a claim.

The tire dealer will then examine the tire. The odds are about 10 million to 1 that it will really be a warranty claim. They are going to find some road hazard damage to the tire that caused the blowout. They are not trying to cheat you, they are just doing their job.

A small puncture will cause air pressure loss. Loss of pressure will cause the rim to eventually start rubbing and wearing out the inner liner on the tire. It also lowers the load capacity of the tire and starts generating more heat. The combination of the two is what causes the blowout.

Bottom line, you're buying a tire.

Warranty is through Kumho, so visit a authorized Kumho dealer. Unless your dealer had a tire / wheel warranty package, then the dealer will deal with all warrany including damage such as hitting pot hole and what not. You would have had to buy the warranty though. I have it on my Sonata and most Canadian dealer has the warranty.

99% you are SOL. They are a wear item and in your case unless you pay for that dumb warranty you will have to buy a new tire.

A very good point. While I agree he is probably buying a tire, not sure the whole story is in place quite yet. If your wife hit anything what-so-ever, its not warranty. IF (big IF) she didn't it will probably be covered. I personally have not had a tire just fail. There has always been an extenuating circumstance of running over something or hitting something.

Nothing like a nail in the sidewall of an expensive tire three days old to really ruin a day. :whistling:

Glad they took care of you, but that is very concerning. Tires shouldn't blow out on a brand new vehicle without cause. Not sure if all the 2011 Sonatas have the same tires, which model/tires do you have?

Good news,, They can't say no unless you ask, and sometimes the answer is YES. Glad it worked out for you.

Did anyone let you know what the retail cost of the replacement tire was?
