- No Genesis Yet!
If you buy a set of winter tires through your Genesis dealer is the changeover part of your complimentary maintenance?
I think that is a good question. If they inspect your brakes and rotate your tires (obviously they can't rotate the staggered guys) then there should be no reason they wouldn't change over to winters if they are on different wheels.If you buy a set of winter tires through your Genesis dealer is the changeover part of your complimentary maintenance?
Similar situation and concern on my end. This is what I sent to the Hyundai service manager who had contacted me;^ ah, i see. agreed. this is the case with my wife's Highlander. the oil change service includes tire rotation, so i just get them to put the winter tire/wheel set on instead of rotating the A/S tires. no issues.
i imagine that if tire rotation is included with the G70 free maintenance this would also be an option. the trick would be timing of the free service if it made sense to do the changeover. i.e. if the time or mileage trigger in not at an ideal time of year for the swap.
That doesn't sound good as Genesis is an upcoming brand and I have heard it a lot of times that they differentiate themselves from BMW by providing these complimentary pick ups and drop offs. They should really stand by that as well and be there for there customer especially now when the customer base is low so they shouldn't be slacking no matter what.Similar situation and concern on my end.

"I have the maintenance schedule, thanks. I do a service on my cars twice a year – once in the fall, once in the spring. Typically the fall is just an oil change and swap the wheels, the spring is a full service, with oil of course, and again swapping out the wheels. I know this is in excess of the Genesis recommended schedule, and I bear the cost of the excess.
I’m never going to be hitting the kms as part of the Genesis service program. I see we have a couple options, let me know which works best for you;
- I bring the car to you this fall to do my regular oil change and wheel swap - paid by me of course. In the spring we do the full, regular, complimentary service – plus I pay to have my summer wheels installed. Yes it will be a few months earlier than what technically would be the “1 year / 10K” mark. We then follow this schedule (fall on me, spring on you other than wheels) for the remainder of the 5 year period.
Obviously my preference would be option 1 – less time and less costly for me – and at the end of the day the same number of total complimentary services for Genesis."
- I bring the car to my local shop in the fall to do the wheel swap and oil change, and I do the same in the spring. Come July 19th you can do the full, regular, complimentary service. Again we then follow this schedule for the remainder of the 5 year period.
I thought I was fairly polite and reasonable, but I never got a response. Getting close to when I'm going to need to put on my winter wheels, I guess I'll take the lack of answer that she's electing to go with Option 2. I am going to have REALLY clean oil in my car!!
I messaged Hyundai about a month ago to order them. I had it in my head that service was every 6 months for some reason so I had booked it in for the oct 15. 26th might not be to late if this weather keeps upHow long did it take to get those? I literally just got a text saying my wheels won't be in until Oct 26 which is way too late imo.
BTW they look really good.
Make sure the 17" clears your caliper esp if the Genesis website spec 18" for your car. Only the 18" clears the Brembos.Does anyone know if the Offset or Bore is different if using the 17" Switch wheels on the Prestige as opposed to the 18"?
I can only find the 18" specs listed for the G70 on the Fast website!
YEah the Prestige in Canada does not have Brembo. Only the RWD Sport and 3.3T trims come with it.Make sure the 17" clears your caliper esp if the Genesis website spec 18" for your car. Only the 18" clears the Brembos.
