Elantra Touring 4-cyl

  • 56,000 miles


Cracked/fractured 17" rim in the 2011 Hyundai elantra limited my tire pressure light illuminated and, after checking all of the tires' pressure, filled the driver's rear tire with roughly 7lbs of air. I proceeded straight to a tire facility & was shown that the driver's side, rear tire was perfectly fine but the 17" rim was actually cracked and causing the tire to leak air at the point of the crack. The mechanics were in awe and expressed how rare it was for a rim to crack or fracture as it had. I was advised that the rim is extremely dangerous to drive on. A couple of months prior, I had to replace the driver's side, front tire due to a sudden bulge in the sidewall. I have since learned that I am not alone. There have been elantra owners who have been involved in very serious accidents due to rim/tire related issues. There are mentions of too low of profile rims/tires on this body style car. Of course, I would prefer this not happen to anyone, let alone myself or someone in my car, and have chosen to voice my safety concern. I have contacted Hyundai and am actively awaiting a response.

Please read through the following forum: www.cargurus.com/cars/discussion-T35968_ds499866 Hyundai equips the SE model of this car with 17" alloy rims and low-profile tires. This combination has caused a lot of problems, and I believe it is the tip of the iceberg. I had problems with leaking tires from this rim/tire combo and have had to repair a rim so it would no longer leak. Now, it is costing me about 1500 dollars to switch to 15" steel wheels to fix what appears to be a design flaw. Tires are not a joke. When they fail it can cause serious injuries. I believe that investigation would reveal far more people have this problem than has been reported.
