Are they covered by the same warranty, or do they have a different warranty from the tire manufacturer?

In this article, we will answer these questions and explain what you need to know about Hyundai tire warranty.

Hyundai Factory Warranty Overview

Before we get into the details of Hyundai tire warranty, let’s review what the Hyundai factory warranty covers.

The Hyundai factory warranty consists of several components, each with its own coverage period and terms.

This warranty applies to the original owner only, or to the immediate family members of the original owner for vehicles purchased before 2004.

ii)5-Year/60,000-Mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty

This covers any component manufactured or workmanship under normal use and maintenance.

iii)7-Year/Unlimited Miles Anti-Perforation Warranty

This covers corrosion perforation of the body sheet metal due to defects in material or workmanship under normal use.

This warranty applies to all owners of the vehicle.

Hyundai Tire Warranty Details

Now that we have a general idea of what the Hyundai factory warranty covers, let’s focus on the tires.

The tires on your new Hyundai vehicle are not covered by the Hyundai factory warranty, but by a separate warranty.

Each tire manufacturer has its own warranty policy and terms, which may vary depending on the type and model of tire.

You can find the tire manufacturer’s name and contact information on a label attached to each tire.

The tire manufacturer’s warranty typically covers defects in materials and workmanship that cause the tire to become unserviceable within a certain period of time or mileage.

Some tire manufacturers also offer additional benefits such as road hazard protection, treadwear protection, or free replacement for a limited time.

However, these benefits may have exclusions or limitations based on factors such as tire wear, damage, maintenance, usage, speed rating.

Conclusion

The Hyundai factory warranty covers various components of your new Hyundai vehicle, but not the tires.

The tires are covered by a separate warranty from the tire manufacturer, which may vary depending on the type and model of tire.

The tire manufacturer’s warranty typically covers defects in materials and workmanship that cause the tire to become unserviceable within a certain period of time or mileage.

Some tire manufacturers also offer additional benefits such as road hazard protection, treadwear protection, or free replacement for a limited time.

However, these benefits may have exclusions or limitations based on factors such as tire wear, damage, maintenance, usage, speed rating, and inflation pressure.
