    Question 3 year tire recall coming to an end - which tire is best?

    Members don't see this ad
    I know over the years their has been much discussion on best tires to switch to (because of recall). Now that many 2015 G2 sedan owners are nearing the deadline to switch - can owners who made the switch earlier, give the rest of us your wisdom of the good and the bad tire experience, so those still sitting on the fence can now make an intelligent choice.

    My recommendation: Avoid the Michelin tires that Hyundai has designated as the replacement at all cost. So many people reporting steering wheel vibration issues, it's definitely related to that specific type of tire. Multiple threads on here about these tires.

    It cost me four trips to two different dealer service departments, two trips to Discount Tire and five weeks of driving crap box rental cars to get that issue resolved. For the time and money I spent getting the issues with the damn Michelin tires sorted out, I could have purchased two sets of different tires myself.

    The issue is know at Hyundai corporate, yet they still use the Michelin tires as replacements - the "why" is beyond my understanding.

    Are the Michelins my only choice and do I have to deal only with a Hyundai dealership?

    I was given no choice except Michelins.....If I could it would be Conti DW06

    I have the recall Michelins on my car and while they are not bad, I still feel vibrations particularly when first driving and also under other circumstances. I also find they are not as quiet as other tires. I had a Gen 1 previous and when the Dunlops wore out (17000 miles), I replaced with Bridgestone Turenza Serenitys. I was extremely happy with these tires both with smoothness and quietness. ( I wear hearing aids so quiet is important to me). I also had 40000miles on the Bridgestones when I traded the car and they still had half of their tread left. I don't know how they are for "handling", but I found them to be extremely smooth and quiet under most circumstances. Just waiting for my recall Michelin's to wear out)

    There have been posts that if you have the original Hankooks, you can go to a tire dealer and get them replaced. Some have reported success at Discount Tire.
    I had Michelin Primacy MXM4s on mine, so not in the recall. I had the vibration issue, and they replaced them with more MXM4s. Still had the issue, and Hyundai authorized a one time adjustment to replace mine with Conti Extreme Contact DWS 06. No issues. Great tire.

    During the process I did have a chance to drive another Genesis that has a set of Michelins with no vibration issues. Other than my problems with the vibrations, the tires were fine. They were even pretty good in the snow, although the Contis DWS 06s are better.

    Michelin's quality is all over the place

    Many years ago I bought something called Michelin Silhouettes at Costco.

    Worst tires I ever had - apparently some sort of cheapie replacement tire

    So true. I think Michelin has always made excellent Summer and UHPAS (Ultra High Performance All Season) tires.

    What kind of tire are you looking for? Something more performance oriented or more grand touring?

    I've had no problems with the Michelin Primacy MXM4s that were installed last November. The original Hankooks had about 30,000 miles and were getting pretty noisy.

    Not looking for anything fancy- just want a good replacement tire for a nice quite ride. Can I insist on the Conti DWS 06 from the dealer or am I allowed to go to any tire dealer (I have the original Hancook tires that came with my 2015 G2) and have them honor the recall.
