Kia Niro: Tires and wheels / Wheel alignment and tire balance

Kia Niro (DE HEV) Owners Manual / Maintenance / Tires and wheels / Wheel alignment and tire balance

The wheels on your vehicle were aligned and balanced carefully at the factory to give you the longest tire life and best overall performance.

In most cases, you will not need to have your wheels aligned again. However, if you notice unusual tire wear or your vehicle pulling one way or the other, the alignment may need to be reset.
