What is the recommended tire pressure for the 2019 Kia Sorento?

We don’t really give our vehicles’ tires enough credit for the work that they put in to ensure that our drives are smooth. Keeping them inflated to the correct level is essential for keeping your fuel economy and performance where it should be, especially in the case of larger crossovers and SUVs. So, if you’re wondering “What is the recommended tire pressure for the 2019 Kia Sorento?” we’ve got your answer at Boucher Kia today!

We should elaborate – the reason that keeping your tires properly inflated is really two reasons. First, if your tires are under-inflated, it places much more strain on your Sorento model’s chassis and axles – this, in turn, can lead to diminished performance or worse, broken or damaged parts in your suspension.

Keeping your tires overinflated, however, is still a problem, as you run an increased risk of popping or a loss of control while driving. This is because an over-inflated tire will only have traction in its innermost treads, in turn leading to poor handling around corners or in slick conditions. You need all of your treads working together to make sure your Sorento model is running properly.

So, our recommendation is to keep both your front and rear tires at an inflation level of 35 pounds per square inch, or psi. However, you should still consult your owner’s manual for a more accurate and detailed inflation level, depending on your Sorento’s trim.
