Kia Spare Tire Kit Information and Facts!

Kia Spare Tire Kits aren't just a want, they're a need. We never want to have to use them... but the security they provide is immense. One of the worst feelings can be a flat tire on the side of the road and no Kia Spare Tire Kit to get you moving again safely. Take a look at this video for an idea of what purchasing a Kia Spare Tire Kit comes with.

Here are a few tips for you when it comes to Kia Spare Tire Kits.

When you order a Kia Spare Tire Kit from us WITH a mounted tire, the tire always comes fully inflated. However, we recommend checking the air in your spare tire every few months to ensure it is ready when you need it.

When you place your order with us it will be based on the year and model of your vehicle. If you opt for a Kia Spare Tire Kit WITH a mounted tire, we will mount the kit with the tire size that is factory to your Kia wheels. Your Kia Spare Tire may not be the same exact size as the everyday tires you have on your vehicle. This can be for a few reasons, one of them being that your Kia Spare Tire is compact and meant to store securely in your vehicle. Another reason is your Kia Spare Tire Kit wheel ratio is different than your factory wheels, making them seem different in size. No matter the case, they are still the correct size for your vehicle. 

A lot of customers have noticed their Kia came without a spare tire kit. Kia stopped supplying spare tire kits back in 2008 and have substituted them with Kia Tire Mobility Kits.

If you are wondering where you can find the place in your vehicle to store your Kia Spare Tire Kit, I've got a few places you can check. Forte's have storage under the floorboard of the trunk area for a spare tire kit, as well as the Sportage, Soul, Niro, and Optima models. However, the Sorento spare tire location is underneath the vehicle. It's a good general rule to always check under the floorboard of your trunk or cargo area, as well as under the back of the vehicle for a Kia Spare Tire Kit location. 

If you don't have a spare tire in that space, have no fear! You can always come to us at KiaStuff if you'd rather have the Kia Spare Tire Kit instead, or as an extra precaution. We have most spare tire kits ready to ship within a few days.

Above is an example of a sticker with tire size and tire pressure information. This sticker is usually found on the inside of your driver side door or door jamb. As you can see, it will clearly show what size Kia Spare Tire is needed for your vehicle.

Here is a list of Kia Spare Tire Kits that we offer:

All of the Kia Spare Tire Kits have the option to purchase with or without a tire. 

You can also purchase a  Kia Spare Tire Donut directly from us without the kit included.
