Changing Your Kia Tires

How do you change a car tire on a Kia vehicle? To change the tires on a Kia vehicle, you’ll need a jack, lug wrench, spare tire or new tires, and your owner’s manual. Replacing your car, truck, or SUV’s tire should be a simple and straightforward process if you follow these instructions:

  1. If you’re on the side of the road near Smithton, move to somewhere safe and put your hazard lights on.
  2. Wherever you may be, apply the parking brake and wheel wedges under the other tires.
  3. Remove the wheel cover or hubcap from the tire then loosen up the lug nuts.
  4. Use the jack to lift up your vehicle and remove the lug nuts.
  5. Remove the current tire and put on the new or spare tire.
  6. Tighten the lug nuts, then put your vehicle back on the ground.

How Often Should You Change Car Tires?

The answer to how often to change your car tires depends on how often you rotate your tires and how well your tires are constructed. You should be able to get the full mileage promised by the manufacturer if you rotate your tires regularly. Still, you’ll want to check your tire pressure and tread regularly to ensure that you’re on the safe side in Trenton. If you’ve got too much wear, you’ll need new tires, and you can count on Auffenberg Kia’s tire experts to help you out.
