Thanks fellas. My SantaFe came with Hankook tyres and they seemed ok and certainly better than the Avon’s I replaced them with when they wore out lol

Tyres - yet again lol

Well my car is now back on the road however I am running on 15 year old tyres 😲 Now they have been stored in the dark not on their edge and have no cracks or any signs of perishing and the rubber still feels like rubber.

Reconditioned gearbox se5a
