Tires and wheels

CAUTION

When replacing tires, use the same size originally supplied with the vehicle.

Using tires of a different size can damage the related parts or make it work irregularly.

NOTICE

  • We recommend that when replacing tires, use the same originally supplied with the vehicles. If not, that affects driving performance.
  • When driving in high altitude grades, it is natural for the atmospheric pressure to decrease. Therefore, please check the tire pressure and add more air when necessary.
  • Additionally required tire air pressure per km above sea level: 1.5 psi/ km

Recommended lubricants and capacities - (Kia Niro EV)

To help achieve proper vehicle performance and durability, use only lubricants of the proper quality.

These lubricants and fluids are recommended for use in your vehicle.

Recommended lubricants and capacities - (Kia Niro EV)

Recommended lubricants and capacities (Kia NIRO Hybrid)

To help achieve proper engine and powertrain performance and durability, use only lubricants of the proper quality.

The correct lubricants also help promote engine efficiency that results in improved fuel economy.

These lubricants and fluids are recommended for use in your vehicle.

Recommended lubricants and capacities (Kia NIRO Hybrid)

* 1. Refer to "Recommended SAE viscosity number"

* 2. Requires <ACEA A5/B5 Full synthetic> grade engine oil. If a lower grade engine oil (mineral oil including Semi-synthetic) is used, then the engine oil and engine oil filter must be replaced as indicated severe maintenance condition.

* 3. To maintain your vehicle's best performance, use Kia genuine oil or those of an equivalent standard oil.

* 4. Different type of coolant or water may damage the electrical component.

Recommended SAE viscosity number (Kia NIRO Hybrid)

Recommended SAE viscosity number (Kia NIRO Hybrid)

An engine oil displaying this API Certification Mark conforms to the international Lubricant Specification Advisory Committee (ILSAC). It is recommended to only use engine oils that uphold this API Certification Mark.

CAUTION

Always be sure to clean the area around any filler plug, drain plug, or dipstick before checking or draining any lubricant. This is especially important in dusty or sandy areas and when the vehicle is used on unpaved roads. Cleaning the plug and dipstick areas will prevent dirt and grit from entering the engine and other mechanisms that could be damaged.

Engine oil viscosity (thickness) has an effect on fuel economy and cold weather operating (engine start and engine oil flowability). Lower viscosity engine oils can provide better fuel economy and cold weather performance, however, higher viscosity engine oils are required for satisfactory lubrication in hot weather.

Using oils of any viscosity other than those recommended could result in engine damage.

When choosing an oil, consider the range of temperature your vehicle will be operated in before the next oil change. Proceed to select the recommended oil viscosity from the chart.
