Buy Tires for 2016 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  2016 Kia Forte. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Kia tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want a tire that's built to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View Kia-recommended tires for your 2016 Forte, plus important information about Kia Forte tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Your vehicle can't drive correctly without the correct tires. As one of our tire technicians, Brianna, explains, "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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to consider a handful of other factors when buying new Kia Forte tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Kia Forte snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. 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 prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. Do you enjoy pushing your Kia Forte to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. 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 uneven road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Kia Forte tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. 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 2016 Kia Forte tire for your needs.

Questions About 2016 Kia Forte Tires

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 check Kia tire inflation? 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 numbers on my Kia Forte tires mean? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Kia tire numbers.
  • Is there an easy way to check Kia tire tread depth? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Kia Forte tires.
