2010 Hyundai Veracruz Cupped Tires and Rough Ride...Solution?
We bought our 2010 VC Ltd new in 01/11. Minor electrical problems cropped up pretty soon and dead battery problems plagued us the first 18 months. Finally got dealership to put in a new battery to take care of that, but then the past 18 months have been a rough, noisy ride that the dealer attributes to cupped tires. We have 44000 miles on the car and it has been this rough since probably 12000 miles. They decreased air pressure in the tires saying that would make the ride smoother,but a year later, the same service manager now says decreasing the pressure added to the cupping problem. The car has also developed a shimmy at 65 mph, which the service dept also attributes to the cupped tires, which, btw, have been rotated every 5000 miles since the car was purchased. So now their solution is that all will be taken care of if we buy a new set of tires. Of course, it's hard to believe that as we think the problem may be the suspension and not the tire wear. Would like to hear from someone who has experienced a similar situation and if new tires are the answer to the problems. And if so, what are the best tires for VC, not only for a smooth, comfortable ride, but also that won't cup in spite of regular rotations. Thanks for any help you can offer!
