It is vital to maintain proper tire inflation pressures for Kia tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation while high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can reduce fuel efficiency, lead to uneven tire tread wear and decrease tire life, compromise tire safety and cause tire blowout. Check Kia tire pressure regularly, and monitor Kia tire inflation pressures to avoid driving with overinflated or underinflated tires.

Tire inflation listed on tire sidewall is the maximum air pressure the tire can hold to carry its maximum load, and not the recommended tire pressure for Kia. Use Kia recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in Kia owner's manual, on a tire placard on driver's door or door jam, inner trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended tire pressure for your Kia tire sizes will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your Kia may have different recommended tire inflation pressures for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your Kia tires inflated at recommended tire inflation pressures at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace Kia original equipment tires or switch to plus size tires, make sure to follow guidelines for the application of load and inflation tables to find proper tire pressure for your new Kia tires. Kia tires with the same load index, regardless of tire size, may carry the same load, but may require substantially different inflation pressures. Tire load index may not be used independently to determine replacement tire acceptability for load capacity. An equal or greater load index does not always correspond to equal or greater load capacity at all inflation pressure settings. Kia replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your Kia speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the Kia owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your Kia replacement tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, your vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires. Original equipment tires that come on your Kia will have the proper tire load index, so use same or higher load index when choosing replacement tires. Tire load index tells you how much weight your tire can carry. Putting too much weight on your tires will overload them, and can cause premature tire wear, tire damage or even tire blowout. Refer to your Kia manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and load ratings. Always refer to the Kia owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of Kia replacement tires.

Kia tire pressure may fluctuate with ambient temperatures, so check Kia tire pressure when ambient temperatures change. In winter when temperatures drop, Kia tires may deflate by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degree Fahrenheit decrease in temperature. Maintain proper Kia winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.

Kia tire pressure should be checked when tires are cold, after your vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours. It is best to check your tire inflation pressure in the morning, after the vehicle has been parked overnight, using a reliable tire pressure gauge.

If your Kia is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on. Ensure Kia tire pressure sensors are working properly to stay alert and enjoy a safe ride. If your tire pressure warning light is on, check front and rear tires to make sure they are properly inflated.

What is the recommended tire pressure for Kia?
Recommended tire pressure for Kia is determined by the manufacturer based on your vehicle's characteristics and original equipment tire sizes. Select your Kia year or model to get recommended tire inflation pressures for Kia tires.

Where do I find recommended tire inflation pressures for Kia?
You can find your Kia recommended tire pressure in Kia owner's manual, on a tire placard on driver's door or door jam, inner trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended tire pressure for Kia will be listed in psi, bar or kPa.

How to check Kia tire pressure?
Proper Kia tire inflation is essential to the overall tire performance and safety. To check tire pressure for Kia you will need to know its recommended tire pressure and a tire pressure gauge. Check cold inflation pressures in Kia tires with tire pressure gauge and adjust to Kia recommended tire inflation pressures as needed by adding or releasing air. Make sure to check tire inflation for your Kia regularly to ensure safe and comfortable drive.

Is my Kia equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)?
If your Kia is made after 2007, it should be equipped with tire pressure monitoring system. To confirm if your Kia has TPMS, turn on the ignition without starting the engine. If a tire icon with an exclamation sign lights up on your dashboard, your Kia is equipped with TPMS. You can also check Kia owner's manual for more information.

Why is Kia tire pressure warning light on?
If your Kia is equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) it will alert you when tire pressure is too low and your tires could be underinflated, which can lead to uneven tire wear or can cause tire failure. If Kia low tire pressure warning light is on, check all Kia tires for low air pressure and inflate tires to the recommended tire inflation pressures. Keep in mind that Tire Pressure Monitoring System does not replace routine tire pressure check and maintenance.

How do I reset Kia tire pressure monitoring system?
To reset tire pressure monitoring system for Kia, make sure front and rear tires are inflated to the recommended levels. Refer to your owner's manual on how to reset Kia TPMS.

What is recommended winter tire pressure for Kia?
Recommended tire pressure for Kia is the same for any season, but you may inflate your Kia tires 3 to 5 psi above the recommended tire pressure set by the manufacturer to compensate for lower temperatures during winter. Make sure to check your Kia tire pressure more often in the winter to keep tires properly inflated for a safe ride on snow and icy roads.
