I have a 20 ioniq EV limited, it's started to use 205/60/16 tires, when I bought it it had 4 different sides I found out when I went to replace a year ago,I didn't realize the your shop put on 205/55/16,s and I must admit the difference in sizes is obvious, but the 55,s ran another quieter and range increase, just recently I bought purchase 鹿 buya set that are 60,s car looks better but the ride and handling is shitty鹿 front end shakes and there's a humming noise, sound like I'm driving in low hear on freeway at 60,70 mph,I only just noticed r. It after installing new tires was wonder if anyone else experienced this, I'm going back to size 55 when I buy a new set next week, a bit long sorry 馃榿

Was it the same brand on the two sets?

I'm on my fourth round of tires and would say that there is more difference between brand and model than between 55-profile and 60-profile.

Michelin Energy Saver 205/60-16 were originally fitted, noisy and bumpy.
The first winter I drove on 205/55R16 Bridgestone Blizzak LM, soft and quiet, unfortunately the error reading on the speedometer was a lot, almost an inch difference in height between them.

Changed second winter season to 205/60R16 Hankook Winter icept Evo2 - they were quieter than the Blizzak 55 tires.

The second summer, I had changed the original tires to South Korean 205/60R16 Nexen N blue S, which run significantly smoother than the Michelin Energy Saver in the same profile.

Then I think you should stick to the tire dimension the car had from the beginning, the fact that the 2020EV got a 60 profile is because it was slightly heavier and the 55 profile tires that were on the 2017-2019EV:s have a lower Tire Load Index and are probably at the limit of their load capacity.

In Europe, we have a statutory classification on tires that ranks rolling resistance, wet grip and noise level.
Unfortunately, harder (and thus noisier) tires roll more efficiently, so it is difficult to find a tire that is both economical and comfortable.
Some new tires are harder and have 25% less tread depth from the start just to be able to show good values, unfortunately they are usually more uncomfortable, maybe the ones you got last time was victims for this.

Hey appreciate the feedback, I started to get Micheline's but the lowest I could find was $180 each, I look at the car look at the Micheline's and send on some off brand named land golden, they came highly recommended but noisy as **** on freeway and the ride is not a smooth one, when I first bought the car I had no idea that it had 4 different tires and sizes, got to love the car dealers,I mean who looks at tires when buying a brand new car, I think I'm try the hankook once I convinced the guy where I bought these to replace then, let you know for they turned out, you know it's a shame Hyundai didn't do more with this model year the 20 ioniq I mean it's really a nice car drive it cross country twice last summer, was thinking of trading it for a new one but I only owe about 14 grand on it got it for half price only reason I bought it
