Get the Right Tires for 2020 Kia Optima

Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2020 Kia Optima. 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 Kia-recommended tires for your 2020 Optima, plus useful info about Kia Optima 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.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Kia Optima tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

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 a smart way to capitalize on Kia Optima'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 pushing your Kia Optima to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? 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 tires that can stand up to dirt, gravel, stone, sand, 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 plan on sticking around town, a Kia Optima 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 Optima tires online. You can buy 2020 Kia Optima tires online now!

2020 Kia Optima Tire Questions

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.

  • Is Kia tire inflation important? 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 Optima tires mean? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • How do I check the tread depth on my Kia tires? 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 Optima tires.
