What Do the Tire Numbers Mean? 

If you’re like many Lynn drivers, then you were probably glancing at the numbers on the Kia Forte tire size guide and wondering what those numbers mean. To help you better understand, here’s a breakdown of an example Kia Forte tire size number:

What Is the Tire Pressure for a Kia Forte?

Now that you know what size of tire your Kia Forte needs, you’ll want to be sure that your tires have the right amount of air pressure in them.
