Second generation PS (2014-2019) / Kia Soul 2014-2019 PS Owner Manual / Maintenance / Tire and wheels / Low aspect ratio tire (if equipped)

Low aspect ratio tires, whose aspect ratio is lower than 50, are provided for sporty looks.

Because the low aspect ratio tires are optimized for handling and braking, it may be more uncomfortable to ride in and there is more noise compare with normal tires.

CAUTION

Because the sidewall of the low aspect ratio tire is shorter than the normal, the wheel and tire of the low aspect ratio tire is easier to be damaged. So, follow the instructions below. When driving on a rough road or off road, drive cautiously because tires and wheels may be damaged. And after driving, inspect tires and wheels. When passing over a pothole, speed bump, manhole, or curb stone, drive slowly so that the tires and wheels are not damaged. If the tire is impacted, we recommend that you inspect the tire condition or contact an authorized Kia dealer. To prevent damage to the tire, inspect the tire condition and pressure every 3,000km.

CAUTION

  • It is not easy to recognize the tire damage with your own eyes. But if there is the slightest hint of tire damage, even though you cannot see the tire damage with your own eyes, have the tire checked or replaced because the tire damage may cause air leakage from the tire.
  • If the tire is damaged by driving on a rough road, off road, pothole, manhole, or curb stone, it will not be covered by the warranty.
  • You can find out the tire information on the tire sidewall.
