Tyre issues

Post by aubreyd » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:59 pm

Hi there I have a Niro 4 fitted with 18inch alloys, and Michelin tyres.
It may be bad luck, but I’ve had 3 different tyres rapidly deflate, 1 was down to a puncture, but the other two seemed to have occurred when they clip a kerb.
I have never experienced this on any other vehicle I’ve owned, and I note on the Michelin side wall, they have a pronounced ridge.
Has anyone else had issues?

Not so far in the 15 months I've had it, and I've clipped a kerb a couple of times with the nearside rear tyre.

I have a 3 with 18" wheels and not had a problem so far. The pronounced ridge is to protect the alloy wheels when you clip a kerb.

Ah, ok, must be bad luck I guess.
