Kia Stinger: Tires and wheels / Wheel alignment and tire balance, Flat Spots

Kia Stinger CK 2018-2020 Owners Manual / Maintenance / Tires and wheels / Wheel alignment and tire balance, Flat Spots

Wheel alignment and tire balance

The wheels on your vehicle were aligned and balanced carefully at the factory to give you the longest tire life and best overall performance.

In most cases, you will not need to have your wheels aligned again. However, if you notice unusual tire wear or your vehicle pulling one way or the other, the alignment may need to be reset.

If you notice your vehicle vibrating when driving on a smooth road, your wheels may need to be rebalanced.

CAUTION - Wheel weight

Improper wheel weights can damage your vehicle's aluminum wheels. Use only approved wheel weights.

When the vehicle is made ready to drive again, lower the tire pressure to the recommended levels as shown on the Tire and Loading Information label in the driver’s side center pillar for your vehicle (Refer to “Tire specification and pressure label” in chapter 8).

Tire replacement
