Cross-posting from the S-Cross Official Review thread. Member Sree73 has reported cracks in the OE fitted JK Elanzo tyres:

Noticed this in JK ELANZO today. Will it be covered in warranty?

Could not attach the pic earlier. Really disappointed with the quality of tyre. Have done just about 12k kms on my S-Cross. Everybody said change the tyres when I brought the car and I said Suzuki is a responsible company wont compromise on tyre quality but I was wrong.

Since the AStar_AT was not available, I borrowed my sister's Alto last Saturday. On Sunday, while running through a general checkup (oil, coolant, battery, brake-fluid, tyres etc), I open the rear hatch to top-up the spare tyre and see this.

Was shocked to see the cut-open tyre with the steel wires poking out. But not at all suprised given the many prior experiences with JK tyres.

Went and bought a Bridgestone for the stepney. Ofcourse, this is just the start. In the coming months, I am sure I will have to replace the other 4 tyres too. Just a matter of when, not if.
The story continues on the A-Star_AT as I expected. After replacing the faulty tyre, all was well for some months. Now, the vibrations /jumping is back, which indicates another JK Vectra is breathing its last. Car is not with me currently, so could not check which tyre is the culprit. Will know next week.

Yes, another tyre showed the same bulge symptom. Plus also had cuts on it as seen below. Replaced it today with a Bridgestone B290. Put the 2 new Bridgestones at the front.

Checked the other 3 tyres and one is in the initial stages of deforming. Made it spare tyre for now.
