Taking Care of Your Tyres
Well maintained tyres mean better performance, improved fuel economy and more grip in adverse weather conditions. Find out how to keep your tyres in good working order.
What you should know about caring for your tyres.
Your tyres can have a significant effect on driving safety due to their inflation pressure, tread depth or wheel alignment. Checking pressure and tread wear (at least once a month) is relatively simple. Knowing when, how and whether you should rotate tyres demands more expertise. So does identifying and resolving incorrect wheel alignment. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, your local Kia dealer can help you.
Pressure makes a big difference to how your tyres perform. If you have received an alert on your dashboard about your tyre pressure or haven’t looked at them in a while, they will need to be checked. If your tyre pressure is too low (A), you’ll end up with uneven tyre wear and poor grip when cornering – something you’ll especially want to avoid during wintery conditions. If the pressure is too high (B), you’ll suffer from severe tread wear – so your tyres won’t last as long. It will also make steering difficult and increase fuel consumption. The wrong pressure also increases braking distance. Tyres with the correct pressure (C) last longer, reduce fuel consumption and contribute to safe road holding. If the tyre pressure changes suddenly or repeatedly, you should contact your Kia dealer immediately.
Incorrect wheel alignment may cause greater wear on the inside edge of your tyres (A) or the outside edge (B). Correctly aligned wheels are parallel to each other on each axle and at 90° to a level road surface (C). Wheel alignment requires specialist equipment and expert knowledge. If you suspect your Kia's wheel alignment needs adjustment, contact your Kia authorised dealer.
Tyre rotation can help to minimise tyre wear and maximise tyre life. There are several different ways in which tyres can be moved around on the vehicle depending on the type of tyre and whether the vehicle is front-, rear- or four-wheel drive. Rotation sequences include: (A) always moving the most worn tyres in the worst condition to the front; (B) a rear to front, front to rear and side to side rotation; (C) a simple front-rear swap. Talk to your Kia authorised dealer for up-to-date advice and guidance.
Checking tread depth
Most tyres have wear indicators: rubber bars incorporated into the tread pattern. When they are level with the tyre surface, the tyres must be changed. However, it is generally recommended to change tyres when they reach a minimum 4 mm tread depth. Your Kia authorised dealer can check your tyres and change them for you if required.
Professional tyre change for your peace of mind
