Sonata tires - our picks

Recommendation #1 - Bridgestone DriveGuard

The Bridgestone DriveGuard is a touring tire that is suited for all trim levels of the Sonata. Designed with the comfort and quality of a strong touring tire, the Driveguard is also engineered with run-flat capability. This means that you will be able to drive briefly on a flat tire in the case of an emergency. Bridgestone has ensured the strongest safety measures for run-flat capability by incorporating a Nano-Pro tech rubber insert on each tire.

The DriveGuard also provides strong all-season traction in wet and dry conditions through a silica-enhanced compound and an optimized contact footprint to promote proper weight distribution throughout the life of the tire. With a 60,000-mile warranty, a set of these tires will keep you protected on the road at a great value.

Recommendation #2 - Toyo Tire Extensa HP II

The Extensa HP II also has wide shoulder blocks, full-depth multi-wave sipes and optimized block stiffness for responsive handling, forward traction and better braking performance overall. Backed by a 45,000-mile warranty, this tire is suited for the SEL Plus and the Limited trim levels of the Sonata.
