An essential but often-overlooked part of the car ownership experience is making sure that you have the right tires installed on your model, and that they’re inflated to the correct level. The Kia Optima is one of America’s finest sedans, routinely at the top of its class thanks to great performance, stellar fuel economy, and a sleek exterior design. Today we’ll show you the 2019 Kia Optima recommended tire pressure and size so that you can get the most out of your sedan every day! 

2019 Kia Optima tire size recommendation by trim level 

Not all tires are created equal, and most vehicles have very specific sizes that best fit their body styles. The Optima has four distinct trim levels, which for the most part all require a different tire size outfitted. The 2019 Optima’s EX trim will require a tire with a size of P215/55R17, its LX trim necessitates a tire sized at P205/65R16, and tires on an Optima S or SX Turbo line need to be at a size of P235/45R18.

Optimal tire inflation level for the 2019 Kia Optima 

To get a more accurate recommendation for how much your Optima’s tires should be inflated, check out the placard that is affixed to your driver’s side door – in most cases, however, the next time you fill up your tires, be sure they’re inflated to a level of 34 pounds per square inch, or psi. This will allow you a smoother and more efficient ride every time you press the gas!
