Kia Forte: Tires and wheels / Low aspect ratio tire

Kia Forte 2019-2021 (BD) Owners Manual / Maintenance / Tires and wheels / Low aspect ratio tire

Low aspect ratio tires, whose aspect ratio is lower than 50, are provided for sporty looks.

Because the low aspect ratio tires are optimized for handling and braking, they may be more uncomfortable to ride in and more noisy when compared with normal tires.

CAUTION

Because the sidewall of a low aspect ratio tire is shorter than normal, the wheel and tire of a low aspect ratio tire is more easily damaged. Therefore, follow the instructions below.

- When driving on a rough road or off road, drive cautiously because the tires and wheels may become damaged. And after driving, inspect the tires and wheels.
- When passing over a pothole, speed bump, manhole, or curb stone, drive slowly so that the tires and wheels are not damaged.
- If the tire is impacted, we recommend that you inspect the tire condition or contact an authorized Kia dealer.
- To prevent damage to the tire, inspect the tire condition and pressure every 3,000 km
