Does My Kia Come with a Spare Tire?

Kia Sportage Spare Tire

 

As a result of the increasing demand for more trunk space and greater fuel efficiency, Kia vehicles no longer come with spare tires. Instead, you get a Kia Tire Mobility Kit, which consists of a set of tools to assist you in the event your Kia has a flat tire in Greensboro. However, you can still opt for a Kia Spare Tire Kit as an accessory if that’s what you prefer. Carolina Kia of High Point has all the details below.

What’s Included in the Tire Repair Kit?

Kia spare tires stopped being supplied by the company in 2008 to increase trunk space and maximize the fuel economy of their vehicles. Many other automakers made the same changes and replaced it with a tire repair kit. Tire repair kits consist of a set of tools that allow you to temporarily repair or patch your Kia’s flat tire and get it to a certified Kia service center for a replacement. Please note that the Kia Tire Mobility Kit is not meant to be a permanent fix.

The following tools are included with your Kia Tire Mobility Kit:

  • Tire sealant
  • A filling hose
  • A compressor
  • A tire gauge
  • Necessary cables and hoses

How to Use the Kia Tire Mobility Kit

Your Kia Tire Mobility kit can be found in the trunk under the floorboard. You can temporarily repair a Kia flat tire with your Kia Tire Mobility Kit by taking the following steps:

  • Attach the inflator hose to the tire valve stem
  • Turn on the unit; this will inject sealant into your tire
  • Inflate the tire using the compressor
  • After determining it is drivable, head over to your nearest Kia dealership for professional service

If you would like more information or have any questions on using the Kia Tire Mobility Kit, consult your owner’s manual, or feel free to contact us.
