As one of our tire managers, Ruben, says, “I make sure you know which tire is the best fit for your car, not only for performance but safety.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Kia Forte tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. 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.

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. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Kia Forte's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Kia Forte? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want strong tires that can take on gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. 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 mostly drive around the city, a Kia Forte tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want.

2017 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 check Kia tire inflation? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Kia Forte tires? 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? All you need is 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.
