Tyres are the only point of contact your Kia has with the road surface; therefore they should be checked regularly. Ensuring your tyres are up to standard can help reduce your risk of accidents and avoid any unnecessary police fines or points on your driving license.


 

What should you look for?

Tyre Pressure

It is important to regularly check that your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure, especially before a long journey. The correct values can be found in your Kia owner’s manual or give our aftersales department a call, we would be happy to help. Keeping your tyres at optimum pressure reduces your running costs and CO₂ emissions.

Damage

Check your tyres regularly for any visible signs of damage, which can include the tyre sidewall and foreign objects embedded into the tyre. If you spot anything unusual, why don’t you get one of our trained technicians to take a look?

Tyre Wear

A common issue is your tyres wearing more on one side than the other, this can be simply fixed by adjusting your wheel alignment, just bring it into GWR Kia and we’ll put it right.

Tyre Tread Depths

Tread depths affect your vehicle’s stopping distance, the lower the tread the longer the stopping distance, especially in wet conditions. Our recommendation is that tyres should be replaced if your tyre depth is less than 3mm; this will maintain optimum driver performance and road safety.
