Tyres are the only point of contact your Kia has with the road surface; therefore they should be checked regularly. Worn or incorrectly inflated tyres can be dangerous and can cause serious accidents. Ignoring the wear and tear on your tyres could result in a police fine and points on your driving license. Make sure your tyre pressures and tyre wear are checked regularly. For the recommended tyre pressure of your vehicle, please refer to your Kia owner's manual.
Kia dealers offer a wide range of tyres at extremely competitive prices. For more information or for a quote contact your nearest Kia dealer.
New EU tyre label legislation came into effect on the 1st of November 2012 to help customers make an informed decision when buying tyres. The new tyre label contains information such as Fuel efficiency, Wet grip and External rolling noise.

During winter, 48% of all car accidents in the UK are as a result of skidding. Winter tyres are designed and developed to outperform regular tyres in cold weather conditions. When the temperature drops below 7°C, braking distances on winter tyres in wet conditions are 10% less than summer tyres and braking distances on icy conditions are reduced by as much as 20%. Thanks to the specific winter tyre tread pattern design, the adhesion on dangerous wet, snowy and icy surfaces is maximised, improving grip and handling.
