I have a new-ish Kia Cerato Sedan which I bought new last October, While driving home tonight one of the rear tyres went flat and I had to switch it over for the tiny replacement tyre.
The Tyre appears to have burst on the inside (the side facing into the car) for no apparent reason.
Am I entitled to any replacement under warranty? The Kia 7 Years warranty apparently does not cover tyres (of course it doesn't) My searching is not coming up with much and it seems a bit ridiculous for a tyre to fail after not even a year on the road.
I'm wondering if I need to go through the manufacturer, but if I have to buy a brand new tyre so be it.
Edit: pics of damage
Mystery solved, upon further investigation in proper lighting I found a nail in the tread of the tyre which punctured all the way through to the side and must have teared open this hole.
Thanks for everyone's assistance, I'll be taking it in to the shop tomorrow.
