2004 Sonata Tires

After getting brand new tires 2 years ago at Michel’s Tires Plus, 3 of the 4 have gone completely flat or consistently lose pressure. I went to the tire place and asked if there was a problem with the tires and the guy there said that it the tire is not sealing right and it is a Hyundai problem, not a tire problem. The tires on there now are Firestone. Anyone else hear of this?

Do you have alloy rims?  If so I would guess they are trying to tell you that it is not a tyre problem, but rather the rims are even cheaper than most and the leak is through a pours rim problem.
