If the vt comes with the same performance tires that are on the Genesis, plan on buying new tires annually. We have a Genesis and the performance tires lasted around 14,000 miles plus they are useless in snow and ice. Taking into consideration that we bought the car for style and not performance and are conservative drivers, this was most upsetting. Ended up getting new tires PLUS a set of snow tires, an expense we didn't count on. My question is, will the vt have to be outfitted with snow tires for those of us who live in the northern states or is this a summer only car?
