    Going from the OEM conti tires on the 15 5.0 to the Sumitomo's that I have right now are a literal night and day difference.

    Even after lowering the car, on those stock tires, I hardly noticed any change, except that the car was lower. If you have the money, switch out those OEM tires.

    I am sure this is a tire problem, however Hyundai has enlightenment directions Front minimum toe in, Rear Huge toe in and this wears out the inside of the rear tires even with 5k rotation cycles at 20K

    The factory rear camber adds to the problem.

    The tires for the Genesis 5.0 are staggered and directional. My understanding is they should not be rotated.

    The 5.0 tires can be rotated left to right. Front and rears cannot be swapped.

    Thanks. That makes perfect sense, of course, my dealer never offered the option. Big surprise.

    I finally had my 5.0 tires replaced with the ContiSilent Procontact TX at the dealer last week. Got to ride in a G80 AWD loaner for a couple of hours and am very happy with the new tires. A huge improvement in the tire noise and no more vibration from flatspotting! I know they get a bad rap around here but so far I am very happy with the free upgrade, definately gives the car a more traditional luxury car feel. Hyundai did A-OK in my book!

    I'm happy with the Conti's

    And, as far as rotation, I'm glad I really can't - and therefore don't have to.

    Right to left rotation - or vice versa.- a total waste of time - If you think you need to, then you have basic mechanical probs. that should be resolved first.

    After some research for replacement tires for my 3.8 AWD, I decided on Pirelli P-Zero A/S Plus. I was going for the quiet and luxury feel that had hooked me on the Genesis in the first place. Those qualities were definitely fading as the Michelin's wore out (and rapidly I might add). So far, so good. They are extremely quiet and the ride is great again. According to some of the ratings, the Pirellis may lack some of the handling and grip at the extremes compared with some other tires, but I was prepared to exchange that for the luxury feel. I certainly haven't notices any negatives in handling for the way I drive and I'm happy with the choice. Shop around -- there seems to be a wide range in price. My dealer quoted me $200 more for the package than I found at a tire shop in Toronto. The price I paid for the tires mounted and balanced was lower than any I saw on line.
