Kia K900 Tires: Sizes, All-Season and Winter Tires
It’s hard to pinpoint how long your Kia K900 tires will last. Kicking Tires estimates a tire can last between 20,000 and 50,000 miles on average. The lifespan of your Kia K900 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 K900 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 K900 tires for when the time comes.
Sizes for Kia K900 Tires
Both Kia K900 trim levels have the same tire sizes. Keep in mind that the front tire size is different than the rear. Kia advises adhering to the K900’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.

Kia K900 Tires
We will take a look at tires from these dealers: Bridgestone, Continental, Yokohama, Goodyear, Dunlop, Michelin, and Nexen. All of the tires shown here will fit the front and rear tire sizes.
- The Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT tire has a 3-D shape that improves handling. Ride comfort is improved thanks to a cooling fin sidewall design and a nanopro tech sidewall reinforcement rubber compound. An arc-shaped leading edge improves performance in wet and dry conditions.
- Yokohama’s ADVAN Sport A/S tire has 2-in-1 large blocks that improve handling in dry conditions, while wavy sipes help with handling in wet conditions. The performance shoulder helps with cornering stability and optimized sidewall construction helps to provide a comfortable ride.
- The Nexen N7000 tire is an ultra, high-performance tire that has a round block edge that provides a quiet, comfortable ride. Its rigid shoulder block improves cornering stability, while wide, straight grooves help move water away from the tire’s tread.
- Continental’s ExtremeContact DWS tire has a solid outer shoulder that maximizes the tire’s contact with the road. Rolling resistance is lowered due to Dynamic Temperature Distribution. This helps improve fuel economy.
Goodyear, Dunlop, and Michelin have all-season tire options, however they didn’t meet the size specs for front and rear Kia K900 tires.
Although all-season tires can perform in wet conditions, winter tires have better handling and traction on snowy roads. Winter tires are also made to perform better at temperatures below 45 degrees.
- Bridgestone’s Blizzak LM-32 tire has a high-sipe density pattern that improves traction in snow and on ice. Large shoulder blocks help with cornering stability. The tire’s optimized construction improves fuel efficiency.
Nexen, Continental, Yokohama, Goodyear, Dunolop and Michelin have winter tire options, however they didn’t meet the size specs for front and rear Kia K900 tires.
