Why is tire pressure important?

Many people don’t pay attention to the health of their tires until something goes wrong, but regular maintenance and upkeep of your tires can keep the overall health of your vehicle up. If your tires are underinflated, then you risk wearing out your outer tread faster, adding stress to your suspension and making it more difficult to maintain control of your vehicle. Overinflated tires wear out the inner tread faster, making them more susceptible to popping. In the 2017 Kia Sportage, the recommended tire pressure is 35 PSI.

How do I check the tire pressure in my Sportage?

To check the tire pressure in your Kia Sportage, follow these steps:

  1. Remove the end caps on your tires’ air valves and put in a safe place
  2. Place the tire pressure gauge into the valve stem and press down to get a reading
  3. Compare the valve reading to your Sportage’s recommended tire pressure of 35 PSI:
    • If your tire pressure is too low, fill your tire with air until you reach 35 PSI
    • If your tire pressure is too high, push in the valve to let out some air
  4. Replace the end caps on your tires’ air valves
