Father with G90 had two blow outs!
All these rants without any description as to what happened. Two blowouts at different times? Potholes? Curbs? While I didn't hit a pothole, I did "attack" a curb at nearly a right angle. And suffered a gouge in the sidewall, but didn't lose any air.Father with G90 had two blow outs!
I immediately ordered the tire and dealer installed the tire. With all the usual fees, etc., the single tire replacement was over $450.00. /QUOTE]
Wow, $450! At the site below, a front 245/45/R19 is $282 plus shipping and installing. So I can see the bill getting up to the $450 range. Of course, a rear tire would be more.
I bit the bullet and put on a set of Michelins for about $1100 from Costco. While I love my G80 Sport, if I had known about this tire flap, I might have looked elsewhere.

Oh, and if anyone want one 245/45/R19 and two 270/35/R19 Conti's with only 2,000 easy driven miles, I'll make you a good deal. The one 245/45/R19 fits in the donut trunk hole although there is some question as to whether it would serve as a spare for a back tire.
Do you notice a harsher ride with the higher pressure? Are you running the higher pressure for better gas mileage?For those of you who had sidewall issues or blowouts, did you have the tire pressure set at factory Genesis specs or did you inflate it to more? I have mine to 41 to 42psi when driving and praying they won't have this issue. Good luck to you all and hope you'll be safe!
I've never got warnings for being above spec psi.'Experienced a tire pressure warning with a tire pressure warning lamp on the dash one day when and the tire monitor display indicated the pressure was at 35 psi. Our '18 G80 has Michelin Primacy MXM4 245x45 R18 recommended 33 psi front and rear. With that in mind, how does one avoid warning bongs if you run the tires at above 35 psi?
It is an almost unnoticeable orange tire cross section profile.. Seems a suttle ding come along with it. We experienced one on a long highway trip. A quick look at the four wheel tire display revealed it wasn't an under inflate problem. After we reached our destination and was parked, tires cooled, all was well again.I've never got warnings for being above spec psi.
