Buy Tires for 2012 Kia Forte

Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2012 Kia Forte. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Kia tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you need a tire that's designed to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Kia recommends for 2012 Fortes, plus helpful information about Kia Forte tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Kia Forte tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Kia Forte snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one for summer and one for winter. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Kia Forte's safety and performance from January to December. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Kia Forte? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want a tire that can handle dirt, gravel, stone, sand, and more. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Kia Forte tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Kia Forte tires online. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2012 Kia Forte tire for your needs.

Kia Forte Tire Brands

Firestone Complete Auto Care has plenty of good Kia Forte tire brands for you to choose from. Firestone and Bridgestone are two popular brands. Kia Forte Firestone tires are tires you can count on. Harvey Firestone started the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1900 in Akron, OH. He was a passionate inventor from the get-go. Firestone recognized the untapped potential for auto tires, so he began testing and producing farm, truck, and passenger tires. One of the company's pioneering efforts was the introduction in 1908 of the first all-rubber, non-skid tire! Firestone Tires has been passionate about leading the industry since day one, thanks to Harvey Firestone's industrious spirit. Today, Firestone is one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world. They make 8,000 different tires for all sorts of vehicles — including 2012 Kia Fortes.

Bridgestone is another top choice for Kia Forte tires. In 1931, Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan. In 1990, the company merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company. Bridgestone Tires now has more than 50 production facilities and 55,000 employees throughout the Americas!

2012 Kia Forte Tire Questions

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Kia Forte tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why does Kia tire inflation matter? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • What do the tire sidewall numbers mean for my Kia Forte? The numbers on your tire sidewall give you information about tire speed rating, traction, treadwear, tire size, and load carrying capacity. Chat with a tire technician to learn how to read the numbers on your Kia tires!
  • Is there an easy way to check Kia tire tread depth? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Kia Forte tires.
