View Kia-recommended tires for your 2018 Sportage, plus useful info about Kia Sportage 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 Sportage tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Kia Sportage snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

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 winter and one for summer. It's a smart way to capitalize on Kia Sportage's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Kia Sportage 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 a tire that can handle 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 on bumpy roads. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Kia Sportage tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse Kia Sportage 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 few clicks away from finding the right 2018 Kia Sportage tire for your needs.
