    Yes, the side wall tyre tear in rough and patchy roads, must be careful. I twice had problems. Once, a bike skidded and got hit on front side wall. The tyre got burst. By God's grace, No injury to bike ride and for his bike. Second, time while giving way for an ambulance, my left side tyre hit a mile stone. Again it's side wall which burst. The tyre is Good year 205/60R/16. Assurance. It's Top end fully automatic varient. Complaints raised, Good year replacement done. So be careful in Indiana rough roads, on side walls. Otherwise, no issues good and comfort and fun to drive🚗

    I bought this car in nov 2018 and after purchasing this issue occurred after 10 days and now all the tyres are changed but problem repeatedly there is no solution bcoz the alloy of the vehicle is heavy and tyres is not capable of bearing load

    No not at all. But if u install low profile tyres for city driving then there can be a serious issue of side wall tear as low profile tyres are generally for tarmac and track. Go for a 225/55 R17 AT instead
