Recommended tires for Hyundai

Hyundai, is by far, one of the best car models in the world. While it had a lot of shortcomings to deal with in its earlier years of production as the North Korean invasion of 1950, the company stood against all the odds to become one of the most recognized car brands in the world.

Cortina was the first Hyundai model to be introduced into the market back in 1968. But with the hiring of top-notch car producers and designers, the Cortina model was followed by the Hyundai Pony model which was the first mass-produced car in South Korea.

The two models were soon followed by other models. By 2000, the company had exported over 1 million cars to different parts of the world.

The company’s all-new Genesis model produced in 2013 was revolutionary that it ended up scooping the top spot in the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards held in America.

Strategies for choosing the best tires for Hyundai

Things to consider

• Tread life aspect: Always have an estimation of how long you want your tires to last. Users are advised to not rely on a tire’s wear rating as it is subjected to manipulation by the producers. Always look for the Uniform Tire Quality Grading rating where the tests are done following stipulated government guidelines. The rating will be accurate and can be relied upon.

• Wet weather requirements: Depending on where one lives. If you live on a wet-weather condition, then you must go for the type of tires that are suitable for such a condition. For people living in the Snow Belt areas, users should opt for the different types of four-season tires. They can also opt for the winter type of tires.

• Speed rating: It would be naïve to go for tire rating of higher than 150 mph where in many cases you will be driving at 80 mph. Getting your speed rating right will mean you go for the right type of tires saving a lot of money in the process. This is why it is always recommended that users should go for  V-rated type of tires.

Note: 99 mph S= 112 mph, T= 118 mph U= 124 mph, H= 130 mph, V- mph Z= 149 mph, and W= 168 mph, with Y= 186 mph.

• Ride quality:  Low-profile tires tend to be good as they tend to have stiffer sidewalls which improve a car’s handling capability. It, however, increases a car’s ride harshness. This is why the low profile type of tires tend to look good but is extremely harsh when it comes to potholes and bumpy places.

• Noise: It is common knowledge that some trend designs tend to be noisier than others. For people who do most of their driving in highways and driving in pavements, then the noise aspect of the tire is a must-consider aspect. Such drivers should always opt for tires that are quieter among the ones that you will have in mind.
