  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hello all, 2016 Optima LX FE here. I can’t get the TPMS light to stay off. After starting the car, the light flashes, then stays on. I have continuously adjusted the tire pressure, setting all 4 tires at 34 PSI. If the light comes on while driving, I stop and check the pressures; they’re...
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I have a 2018 Kia Optima EX with around 59k miles on it. The other day, I hit a big pothole (I live in New England lol) and noticed an air bubble in my tire. I quickly went to the repair shop & bought a new tire, as the only thing I had at my disposal was the tire mobility kit that came with the...

    I want a wider tire so that the wheels are flush with the fenders on my 2012 Kia Optima. Does anyone have pictures or complaints with this setup?
  4. The Service Center
    Ok, this has happened several times over the last few car trips I've been on... I make sure tire pressure is adequate (36 Psi), and hit the road. About 4-5 hours after starting out, the TPMS light comes on. Haven't hit anything, tire pressure hasn't dropped. Give it 20 minutes, light starts...

    Does your vehicle have a Spare Tire? In the event that your vehicle does have a spare assembly, whether it be full size or a compact, do you know the condition? Like other tires, a spare tire can be impacted from exposure to UV, from heat, and other conditions. To avoid having spare tire...

    Hello all! I have a 2014 SX and I plan on lowering it... more than 1" but hoping I'll still get a good ride. So far I'm seeing a few that went with ARK but wanted to see if anyone else has any recommendations before pulling the trigger. Also, would any supporting parts be necessary as well? As...

    Hello, right now I have a staggered setup. On front I have 245/35/20 rear is 275/30/20. Tires are shot need new ones. if I change from 275/30/20 to 265/35/20 that will fit right? That will be no problem I’m just shortening width and going up in sidewall just alittle? I’m pretty sure it will work...

    Where do I find the size of my tire? How do I know what the speed rating is? These are just a couple of common questions we field from our customers and rightfully so. A tire's sidewall contains a plethora of markings with letters, numbers, and even codes. It's these alphanumeric markings...

    I was just given a set of mounted snow tires for my 2012 EX. There are no sensors in the wheels. If I put these on will it set off the low pressure warning? If so, can that warning be disabled?
  10. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    A multi-store Tire Ctr here told me yesterday their bldg's storage may have 4-5 year old New tires TO SELL (still can't believe it) . Guessed that the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S I'm interested in on arrival may be a 2016-17 Tire (told him no way) . What's the max made-date Age would you feel is...

    Hi all, I'm looking at picking up a used wheel and tire combo locally. I found someone selling a 235, 70, 16 set in decent condition. I'm curious to know if this is too wide for good snow traction or not? The set came off of a 2012 Santa Fe I believe. I like the combo because the tread is...
  12. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Has anyone out there added letters to/colored the letters on their tires? Is there a way to make this mod look good, or is it just too tacky for our specific class of vehicle? Here is an example of what I'm talking about: https://tredwear.com/gallery-tire-paint-lettering-alternative/
