About Kia Optima Tires

The cabin area has an exquisite styling design, spacious and decked with upscale interior amenities to give you the best in riding comfort. All you need is a set of the right tires to enhance your vehicle’s performance and safety on the road. In this regard, CARiD has lined up a competent pool of professionals to help you make the right choice for your car. They also stock a wide selection of Kia Optima tires in a bid to meet the differing needs of their clientele. The type of tire you need for your car will largely depend on the prevailing weather conditions, the terrain or roads you will be using and the expected performance level. Regular tires will suffice on any paved road especially around the neighborhood. However, if you are considering taking a long trip in uncertain territory with the possibility of going through some rough roads then you need a sturdier tire. An all terrain tire will provide the confidence you need to take on such challenge. A run-flat tire is also a good choice for such a trip because it allows you to continue with your journey even after damaging your tire.
Other available options include summer tires for the warm weather period and snow tires for the colder periods of the year. If you live in an area that experiences short winter periods then consider the all season Kia Optima tires. These tires bring convenience to your car because they eliminate the need for periodic change of tires between seasons. Always consider the state of your tires before you embark in your journey. Replace all worn out tires because such tires have increased porosity and experience more leakages than newer tires. Additionally, install TPMS sensors on your tires to monitor air pressure and temperature. These devices also alert the driver when significant deviations from the standard are noted.

- TPMS SensorsNew TPMS Sensors | The Best Choice With Your New Wheels & TiresTire Pressure Monitoring System sensors (TPMS sensors) are fitted in place on the inner surface of your wheel, inside your tire. Attached to that sensor is a valve stem that protrudes outside the tire for the purposes of adding air. A built-in pressure detector monitors tire inflation at all times when the vehicle's ignition is on. That pressure detector has its own battery and transmitter which relays information to the car's main computer. Vehicle control systems read input from all four tires, and will alert the driver via a warning light if the pressure in any one of them drops 25% or more below a pre-determined level. The idea is to give a driver an "early warning" if any tires are low, so that the tire pressures can be corrected.
