I was checking my tires last couple days and the tread has worn down very fast. The Hankook Optimo 426 rated at 60k miles although all the reviews i found said their tires have worn down vast as well. I only have 25k miles but they just seem to of worn out way to quickly. I was curious if anyone else is having this problem?

My wife's Sonata had those tires from the factory and they were done at 24000 miles...I have 6500 miles and I'd guess mine will be about the same. The roads suck and that really does not help I'm sure.

Driving style and average weight capacity plays a roll in tire wear too. If you're car is always full of passengers, or you like to take turns hard, even without breaking loose or roasting tires, you are going to lose tread depth quicker then a 100lb grandma driver that never has passengers or cargo.

My car is usually always just me driving to school and work. But I took it to Kia and they said I should have about 5k to 10k left. I wasn't satisfied so I took them to 6 different tire places and all of them said my back tires were in the red of their reading and yellow in the front. Since the tires are low profile I guess they just wear out even though they were rated at 60k. So I just went ahead and switched them out to some Michelins that were 60k rated and by Consumer Reports.

I just bought a 2020 brand new Technology Cadenza at only have 12,500 miles. My back tire blew out yesterday (hence why I'm on here searching). Both my back tires were completely bald and worn to the wire mesh. I am not sure if this is an alignment problem with the Cadenza. I had a 2014 which had similar issues but not 12 miles worn bald like this 2020.

See my recent post ‘Tire wear’. I think this goes a long way to answering my problem.

Just doesn’t sound right. Think about it. Unless you’re carrying a 1000 lbs of bricks in your trunk your tires just roll, no driveshaft, no wheelspin from burnouts etc. if under inflated you get inside and outside wear, and over inflated the middle wears out. The car is nose heavy. Fronts wear faster than backs. Is it possible that someone switched tires prior to your buying the car. Or after. Not blaming the dealership but weird stuff happens. Did the dealer say this is not supposed to happen or just blame the tires. How about the tire company rep. Did they involve them. I’m driving over 50 years and never saw that. I would pursue the dealer and tire company as your time permits. Or just call the KIA hotline and complain. Good luck.

Spent time yesterday evening at the best shop in town deciding what to do - they were the ones who discovered the problem initially. They inspected the car again and found that the front tires are now showing the same problem as the back, but not quite as bad yet.
Only solution. Full alignment check and four new tires, Bridgestone Quads top V rating, total cost $1380.00 . Quite a pill to swallow at 11,800 miles !

I check tire pressures weekly and we are 82 years old, so I try to keep burnouts to a minimum!
