Estimating how long your Kia Sportage tires will last is not easy. Kicking Tires estimates a tire can last between 20,000 and 50,000 miles on average. The lifespan of your Kia Sportage tires is dependent on how you drive and whether you are driving on summer, all-season, or winter tires. Driving on under-inflated tires and with your Sportage out of alignment will shorten your tires’ lifespan as well. There is no set interval for when you will need new tires, but here is a list of Kia Sportage tires for when the time comes.

Kia Sportage tires vary between trim levels. Kia advises adhering to the Sportage’s original tire size. “Kia does not recommend modifying or altering your Kia vehicle’s specifications including tire size in any manner. As with any modification, if a failure occurs on the vehicle that can be attributed to the modification, the warranty of any affected components may be voided,” according to Kia.
