Affordable 2012 Kia Sorento Tires

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 2012 Kia Sorento. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Kia Sorento tire options. Whether you want tire that's made to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View the recommended tires for your 2012 Kia Sorento, plus helpful information about Kia Sorento tire pressure, tire size, and speed rating. 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 consider a handful of other factors when buying new Kia Sorento tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Kia Sorento snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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. That way, they can maximize their Kia Sorento's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Kia Sorento 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 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're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Kia Sorento tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly 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 Sorento tires online. You can buy 2012 Kia Sorento tires online now!

Kia Sorento Tire Brands

You have so many options when it comes to tire brands that work for Kia Sorentos. Firestone and Bridgestone are two popular brands. Kia Sorento Firestone tires are tires you can count on. Harvey Firestone founded the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio in 1900. He was a boundary-pusher from the get-go. Firestone recognized the overwhelming potential for automobile tires, so he started making and testing truck, passenger, and farm tires.

Firestone Tires has been dedicated to staying one step ahead of the competition since day one, all thanks to Harvey Firestone. Firestone is now one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world with 8,000 different tires for a variety of vehicles — including the 2012 Kia Sorento.

Questions About 2012 Kia Sorento Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Kia Sorento tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check Kia tire inflation? 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 Sorento? 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? 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 Sorento tires.
