 Description of the problemAfter 15,000 miles tire developed a huge bubble on the side wall of the front left tire. Bought the car brand new with original tires from dealership(nexen). These tires should be outlawed. Right after i got it to a mechanic shop, it exploded and was sitting on the rim. I was very fortune to not be driving on the highway when this occured. I can send picture also. I have had two flat tires within the first year of purchase. Not including the 2nd pair that the bubble developed at the front. The nexen tires tread life is very short too.. They seemed to drive better in slightly wet conditions than dry; odd. :/ i received no compensation from the kia dealership i bought it from.
