When should I replace the tires on my Kia?
Kias are renowned for their reliability and subtly-aesthetic design. While their durability often allows them to stay on the road for years, the tires on your Kia might not fare quite as well. All those miles will begin to add up, meaning eventually you’ll need to replace them. Find out when you should replace the tires on your Kia here on our blog!

Some people run into problems with maintaining their vehicles because rather than taking them in at the first sign of something going wrong, they’ll wait until the issue gets worse. This can be catastrophic down the road, as waiting on maintenance can cause both financial hardships and possible danger. Your tires are no different. They need to be well maintained and replaced when needed. The proper rule of thumb is to replace your tires once they get to 4/32”, as they will have a harder time withstanding wet, slick roads. If you live in an area that frequently gets snow and ice, it’s best to change them before the tread depth falls below 5/32”.

How can I make my tires last longer?
There are a few measures you can take to extend the life of your tires. For starters, brake slowly instead of quickly and with greater pressure. Slamming on the brakes will cause the tires to slide on the pavement more. The same goes with rapidly accelerating or “burning out”. Regular tire rotations will help even out the wear and tear, since some tires bear more weight than others.
