View the tires Kia recommends for 2021 Fortes, plus helpful information about Kia Forte tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. 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.”

Beyond the correct tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Kia Forte tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. 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.

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 a smart way to capitalize on Kia Forte's performance and safety throughout the year. 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 tires that can stand up to sand, stone, gravel, dirt, and more. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability 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. 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 click or two away from a new set of 2021 Kia Forte tires.

2021 Kia Forte Tire Q&A

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.

  • Is Kia tire inflation important? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • 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!
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Kia tires? 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.
