How to Buy Tires

March 21st, 2019 by

Nobody likes to buy tires. It is one of the more expensive maintenance items, but your personal safety and the efficient operation of your vehicle demand proper attention. We are continually astounded that over 75% of the vehicles that come in for service need new tires. A relatively small percentage of customers take our recommendation and buy them. If we believe that a customer is endangering his or her life, we will press the issue.


Once you have decided to purchase new tires, the price is not the only frustration. There are many brands and many options within each brand. Kia Country recommends trusted tire brands Kumho, Hankook, Yokohama, and Michelin tires for your Kia or Hyundai vehicle. Kia’s TIRE SOURCE will help you get started. See which tires are available and have been specifically engineered and tested for your vehicle.

You can find the correct size tire on your sidewall, inside the driver door, and in your Owner’s Manual. Select the tires which are best suited for the climate and conditions where you do the majority of your driving. Additionally, tire technology continually evolves; see what’ new since the last time you purchased tires.

Our Service team is happy to answer any questions you may have and help you make a selection. Our prices are competitive, you can rely on expert installation by Kia Trained and Certified Technicians and you will get complimentary Road Hazard coverage.
