Affordable 2018 Kia Rio Tires

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 2018 Kia Rio. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Kia Rio tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the tires Kia recommends for 2018 Rios, plus helpful information about Kia Rio tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "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, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Kia Rio tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in south Texas, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. 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 thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Kia Rio'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 Rio to the limits? Adventuring where other vehicles can't? 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 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 Rio tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2018 Kia Rio tire for your needs.

2018 Kia Rio Tire Q&A

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Kia Rio 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 Rio 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 Rio tires.
