Does The Kia Forte Have A Spare Tire

Does my Kia Forte come with a spare tire?

Have you checked if your 2019 Kia Forte has a spare tire included? You never know when an accident can happen, and you can never be too prepared. Most Kia owners assume there is a spare in their trunk if they find themselves in a tire-related emergency. Contrary to popular belief, spare tires have become increasingly more uncommon in new cars. The more recent your Kia Forte model is, the more likely it is that a spare tire is not included. The 2019 and 2020 Kia Forte models do not include a spare tire. In fact, if you purchased a Kia Forte and the model year is after 2013, it most likely does not include a spare tire. Instead, Kia owners will find a Tire Mobility Kit (TMK) under the trunk floorboard.

Why do Kia cars no longer include spare tires?

Replacing spare tires with Tire Repair Kits is a growing trend among many car manufacturers. Kia no longer includes spare tires because:

-          It  considerably lowers the weight of the vehicle

-          It increases cargo space

-          It boosts fuel economy

Improving the fuel economy rating saves gas, which saves you money, and protects the environment by lowering gas emissions. The benefits of replacing the spare tire outweigh the cons.

Kia offers Tire Mobility Kit (TMK) as a substitute to a spare tire

In your 2019 Kia Forte, you will find a Kia Tire Mobility Kit in the trunk under the floorboard cover. The Inflator Kit contains an aerosol sealant, a filing hose, compressor, tire gauge, cables and hoses. For more in-depth information see your owner’s manual. Tire Mobility Kits are made to repair small punctures until you can get your car to the nearest service center.
