My 2006 Hyundai Elantra’s driver side front tire unexpectedly blew out yesterday on the highway. I very slowly drove it to safety - < 1mile - and proceeded to change the tire. After driving on the spare for about 50 miles, I get out of the car to check it. It was HOT!! I check the rim, and that center - cylinder thing, and they are hot as well! Curiously I check the passenger side front tire. That tire is barely warm, but the rim does also have some heat to it.
Is there potentially something wrong other than a blow out, and can these two instances possibly be related? Or am I making things up, and just need to put a new tire and carry on with my day?
