HYUNDAI TIBURON Tires problems : 1.
On 5/19/13 I Purchased 4 New Good Year Assurance Fuel Max Tires. After Driving Less Than 5,000 Miles On The Tires My Tire Pressure Light Came On 3 Times, &when I Checked Them, All 4 Had Gone Low (by 5-7lbs Of Pressure Each Time) . After The 3rd Time Of This Happening, In Less Than 6 Months Of Purchase, I Decided To Search Online To See If Anyone Else Was Having Similar Problems With These Ties. The Results Were Scary; I Found Dozens And Dozens Of Blogs & Reviews Stating These Tires Were Slowly Loosing Air, Bubbling &/or Bursting. Most Stated Cracks Were Found On The Sidewall Inside The Tire, Causing Pressure To Go Low. After Seeing These Results, I Went Outside And Inspected My Tires More Closely, And The Front Driver Side Had A Small Bubble In It. I Immediately Took It Back To Good Year And Was Told That The Bubble Was A Road Hazard Issue Cause By Hitting A Pot Hole (and This Was Before Anyone Even Took The Tire Off To Inspect It). I Asked Why All 4 Tires Have Been Slowly Loosing Air, And Their Reply Was “that Is Odd, That Doesn’t Usually Happen Like That.” Based On My Findings From The Internet, I Asked Them To Inspect The Internal Sidewalls Of The Tires, Just To Make Sure There Were No Cracks That Could Be Causing The Slow Air Leaks. I Opened A File With Gy’s Customer Service And They Asked The Store To Inspect The Inside Of All 4 Tires, And To Send Them An Inspection Report, But All The Tech Did Was Spray The Outside Of The Tire To Check For Air Bubbles/leaks (but Did Not Remove The Tires To Check The Inside Walls). The Tire With The Bubble Was Replaced, But I Was Not Allowed To Keep The Tire To Have It Inspected. I Was Told The Manufacturer Would Inspect It, But That Will Take Several Weeks. I’m Very Concerned With The Number Of Reviews/blogs Online With The Same/similar Complaints About These Tires, So I Am Filing This Complaint To Document My Experience With Them. I’ve Had My Car Since 2008 And Never Had Any Problems With My Old Tires. *tr
