Kia Forte: Maintenance / Tires and wheels

Kia Forte 2019-2020 (BD) Owners Manual / Maintenance / Tires and wheels

Tire care

For proper maintenance, safety, and maximum fuel economy, you must always maintain recommended tire inflation pressures and stay within the load limits and weight distribution recommended for your vehicle.

Recommended cold tire inflation pressures

All tire pressures (including the spare) should be checked when the tires are cold. “Cold Tires” means the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours or driven less than 1.6 km (one mile).

Recommended pressures must be maintained for the best ride, top vehicle handling, and minimum tire wear.

For recommended inflation pressure refer to the “Ties and wheels” section in Chapter 8.

All specifications (sizes and pressures) can be found on a label attached to the driver’s side center pillar.

WARNING - Tire underinflation

Inflate your tires consistent with the instructions provided in this manual.

Regularly check the tire inflation pressure, and correct it as needed.

Driving on under-inflated tires not only compromises your vehicle's driving stability but also may lead to tire damage and the risk of an accident. Severe under inflation (70kPa (10 psi) or more) can lead to severe heat build up, causing blowouts, tread separation and other tire failures that can result in the loss of vehicle control. This risk is much higher on hot days and when driving for long periods at high speeds.

Failure to maintain specified pressure may result in excessive wear, poor handling, reduced fuel economy, deformation of the tire and/or wheel, harsh ride conditions, possibility for additional damage from road hazards, or result in tire failure.
