Hi please help. Took my car into local shop to put on summer tires. Horrid noise started after a week. Hyundai says 245's put on front and 225's on rear. They said it caused spring to break. Now i need 2 new springs and tires (245's) since that is the tire that was shredded. Tire shop says not their fault?? Comments - I have a 2010 2.0T coupe - well maintained.

Dunno about that, I am a 65 year old woman who only knows what I like in a car, not how to examine it. I didn't tell the shop (a national tire shop) how to install them - if you are in the business of selling and installing tires, I shouldn't have to explain to them how to do it! I only drove for 2 weeks, at most 60km per hour so not fast.
