Buy Tires for 2016 Kia Optima

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's one reason it's a good idea to visit us when you're ready to buy new  2016 Kia Optima tires. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Kia tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want tire that's made 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 Optima, plus helpful information about Kia Optima tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires and you'll experience our best service. 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 Optima tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. 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 Optima 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. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Kia Optima'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 pushing your Kia Optima to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? 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. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Kia Optima tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Browse Kia Optima tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 2016 Kia Optima tires.

Kia Optima Tire Brands

Firestone Complete Auto Care has plenty of good Kia Optima tire brands for you to choose from. Firestone and Bridgestone are two popular brands. Kia Optima Firestone tires are tires you can count on. The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio by Harvey Firestone. He was a boundary-pusher from the get-go. Firestone saw a future in automobile tires, so he started producing and testing farm, truck, and passenger tires. The company can be credited for introducing the first all-rubber, non-skid tire in 1908! 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 2016 Kia Optimas.

Bridgestone is another top choice for Kia Optima tires. In 1931, Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan. In 1990, the company merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company. Today, Bridgestone Tires has more than 55,000 employees and 50 production facilities throughout the Americas. The company remains an international leader in tire and rubber technology, providing world-class service, tires, and more to communities worldwide.

Questions About 2016 Kia Optima Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Kia Optima 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 Optima 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.
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Kia tires? 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 Optima tires.
