#5 of 9 FLAT TIRE
Dec 16, 2011 (1:22 pm)
Recently, I bought a 2012 Hyundai Accent GS hatchback, and had a slow leak puncture in one of my tires, one day. I used the air pump with the sealant which replaces a spare tire on the newer Accents, but without success. I had to call Hyundai roadside sevice for a tow truck to be taken to the nearest dealer for repair. On 11/1, Hyundai said if I sent the bill for the new sealant canister to them, they would reimburse me (about $35). I did, but then they called to say that they wouldn't! So, a flat tire costs them the towing; and for me - $52!
#7 of 9 tire rotation pattern for '12 Accent
Aug 30, 2012 (2:48 pm)
I've got a 2012 Accent and want to rotate the tires (I've got over 8k miles on it). In the manual on p. 7-39 there's a paragraph on tire rotation but it doesn't specify a pattern (front to back, side to side, criss cross, etc).
Anyone have a recommendation? I don't know what kind of wheels and tires I have off the top of my head, I'll check an report back. It's a GLS.

Move the front tires straight to the rear and cross the rears to the front (left rear to right front, right rear to left front) You probably want to rotate a little sooner than 8,000 miles as well. I have a buddy who owns a tire shop/garage and they recommend rotations every 6,000 miles. Rotations on a regular basis will really help maximize how long your tires will last for you. (Driving conditions and habits will certainly factor in as well)
