I’m baffled right now and very disappointed with my OEM Michelin tires. I only have 8k miles on them and my left rear tire is literally falling apart. There are multiple chunks of rubber all over the tire that keeps coming off while driving. Worst part...Kia service won’t replace them since there is NO warranty on new vehicle tires. They claim it’s normal wear & tear from the soft rubber in the Michelins and simply need to be replaced. Unless I’m mistaken I still see the “wear warning” marks in the treads and they seem like they have plenty of miles left in them. I feel like Kia is trying to take advantage of me, but I’ve already talked to two managers and they still won’t cover them. I’ve had dozens of different “high performance” tires on many of my cars and never had this problem. Is this a defective tire? Is this something worth fighting Kia over to replace? Or should I believe Kia and just blame the Michelin’s for POS tires that fall apart in under a year... Any suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated.
