  1. 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...
  2. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    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?
  3. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I'm rebuilding the front end of my car (raccoon collision), and I'm thinking if I line my wheel cowls with dynamat, that should cut down on road noise... Is this a viable plan?
  4. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Just spotted these in an Instagram ad: https://www.ebay.com/itm/402122800796 Apparently there are some forany brands, but none in the "K5", or better still, the "Flying K" yet... Thoughts? Is this a good look, or just chintzy garbage?
  5. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    About a couple of months ago (September 2019), I noticed that the indicator light on my heated steering wheel button remained lit while driving despite no heat being emitted from my steering wheel whatsoever. This has been an ongoing problem so I decided to take it to my local Kia dealership...
  6. New Member Introductions
    Had the car for a year, been like this since we got it. Basically they all do different things. For example, volume down turns on Bluetooth voice control, track skip up is volume down, volume up is mute, etc. Done a little bit of searching and sounds like its just wiring issue. I've seen little...
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I’m going to be getting rid of my 2012 SX in the next few months. On the outside, the car is in great shape. A clear bra has kept it free of stone chips. I am hoping to get a slightly above Blue Book payout for it. But...I have an issue on two of the pizza wheels. There is a corrosion issue...
  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    hi all, the trip/eco/reset button on my wife's 2012 optima has fallen into the steering wheel itself. how is it attached in the first place and can it be fixed or does the button itself need to be replaced? thanks! (google photo of the steering wheel):
  9. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I scratched my steering wheel the other day. Not very deep but it leaves a rough touch. I tried some leather healing milk but no luck. I decided to cover it for now and when I get a chance I'll ask either my dealer or a detailer about the scratch. For now I found a steering wheel cover...
  10. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    So as I research wheel options for my 2016 hybrid, I see Kias lists as 5x114.3 and 5x115 wheel bolt pattern. Is it safe to assume these sizes are interchangeable? It's a very very slight difference. It's also astounding to me some Optimas came with 235 45 18 tires. I was concerned 225 45 18s...

    Hello all I am in the process of the following as I have been wanting to put a system in this car since day one. That being said the staging in this car is phenomenal from factory. I am pretty big on SQ and even in my base model with he speaker placement it is very good. Anyways here is what I...
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Washing the car yesterday I discovered - Both Rt-side McGard Lock Nuts Missing - and no one had touched the tires since my 9/26 New Tire install. Turns out the installer Stripped my Key sometime in the process, and so logically they couldn't have been tightened correctly. [ EDIT: While...
  13. Engine and Technical Discussion
    While I'm driving and turn the wheel left and right, the car's front end wobbles a bit but I'm not sure if it's due to the winter tires. Or could it be rack and pinion? Anyone else know what I'm talking about?
  14. The Service Center
    As the temperatures drop, I went to use my heated steering wheel for the first time this year on my 2012 Optima EX and it isn't working. The indication light that is supposed to light up on the button does not light up when pressed and the wheel is not heating up. I already checked the fuse...
  15. The Service Center
    This may be a bit hard to explain, but I've noticed that my 2012 Optima (in great shape, no damage or collisions) takes more effort than it should to make minor corrections. It's easiest to notice if I'm moving at freeway speeds. If I'm on a freeway going straight and I need to make a very minor...
  16. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Can anyone recommend a good touch up paint (not a spray can) to touch up some small scratches on my 2018 Optima EX with the stock silver 17" wheels? Is there more than one shade of silver?
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    With Lane Keep Assist I keep getting the warning to keep my hands on the wheel, even if they are. For example, if I am going down a very straight road and dont need to move the wheel yet my hands are on it, I'll get the message. Any way to change the sensitivity of this message? Or delay the...

    hi all, long time no see! a little while ago i asked about changing the steering wheel from the 2012 model, for a 2014/15 model, someone kindly posted some part numbers up for us, but can't find them now, tried searching, but no record for some reason, maybe i used the shout box or something...
  20. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I live in Ellicott City, Maryland. Other places nearby are Columbia, Md, Silver Spring, md. etc. I am looking for a shop that will put custom wheels on my 2014 kia optima ex. I know what wheels I want, but major tire dealers like Merchants Tires, etc, say they don't put the custom wheels on the...
