Kia tyre information
Kia Motors is Korea’s second largest car manufacturer. The company opened its first integrated automotive assembly plant in 1973, the Sohari Plant. Starting in 1986, in partnership with Ford, Kia produced several Mazda derived vehicles for both domestic sales in South Korea and into other countries.
Europe is Kia’s core future growth market. To differentiate itself in the market from other Korean and Japanese cars Kia has introduced a new corporate grille to create a recognizable ‘face’ for the brand. Known as the Tiger Nose this will be rolled out across the existing range and visible on all future models.
Changing Kia tyres
When changing your Kia tyres it is important to take into account the overall quality of the tyre, the speed rating of the tyre and your local weather patterns. It is important to fully assess your driving style and needs before purchasing your new Kia tyres to ensure you get the best performance from your vehicle.
If you are looking to change the size of your wheels you need to ensure the tyre size will be valid. For example, if you fit a larger wheel size then you will need to reduce the profile and/or the width of the tyre to prevent damage occurring to the drive train. As such a 195/65/15 Kia tyre on a 17 inch rim, could become a narrower 165/65 or a shorter 195/55 but could not stay a 195/65 as before. To find out what sizes are valid for your Kia use our tyre size calculator.
When changing your Kia tyres it is important that they are re-fitted using the correct amount of pressure to tighten the wheel nuts. This pressure setting is called torque and the settings for the most popular models can be found in the chart here.
