  1. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hi all - my 2010 soul+ was totaled by a hit & run, with 4 new Michelin Premier A/S I just bought in December. I took them off and plan on selling them. I bought a 2014! but the tires are crap. I'm sliding all over the place. I'm in Florida where we have a lot of rain during hurricane season...

    Picked up my new 2020 Soul EX with 18" wheels last week. Great car! While flipping through dash screens, I noticed the tire psi was 48, so obviously the dealer failed to deflate them before delivery. When I checked the manual, it shows 36psi for all 3 wheel sizes but the inside drivers door...

    2016 Kia Soul+ New York City (four season, potholes) Have a tire with a small bubble so it’s time for my first tire replacement. Not worried about esthetics, my only concerns are value for the dollar (total cost installed) and impact on mpg and maintaining reliability of dash trip meters if...

    Will a 17”x7.5” with a +35 offset wheel work on our cars? I’ve searched the forum, googled, and posted the question on a Facebook page and can’t get a definitive answer. I know the wheel width & diameter is okay, it’s the 35mm offset that is in question. I don’t mind them being almost flush...

    As many of you know my daughter has a 2010 Sport that she got from her brother a couple of years ago. it has the `18 inch wheels and what I call rubber band tires(225/45/18) My son had just put new tires on it just before his sister got it. Since he was living in Mass. at the time I assume they...

    Tire warranty 'not worth the paper it's written on,' B.C. man says after manufacturer refuses to pay out We should probably replace the OEM tires (circa 47K kilometres) on our 2015 Kia Soul before next winter so I have been looking at a few posts on the subject. I thought this article might...
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, I have a vibration issue with my 2011 Kia Soul Plus. Vibration is felt at idle/park in right front tire. When hands are placed on top of tire, a vibration is felt through the tire while running, in park. All other tires have no vibration. Also, vibration is felt through the floor and...

    This is a request more directed to those who live in the Great White North or the Midwest although any opinion is desired. My Daughter is looking for a set of new tires for her 2010 Sport. I believe the size is 225/45 18. Anyone who owns and drives a Soul knows that although they are an...

  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So 2 weeks ago I looked in the spare tire area and found 3+ inches of water in it. Got it all out and didn't see any where it could be coming from. It rained again and again I had like half gallon to a gallon of water. Dried it out went underneath and smeared rtv silicone on over the grommets...
  11. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hi all, Hope this is a quick question. My 2019 Soul Base came with 205/60/16 and I am looking for a set of white letter tires. The only thing have been able to come up with is the Cooper Cobra GT in a 235/55/16. Anyone know if this will work on the 2019? The height is only .50 more and the...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    As far as I know, these are factory ones? Yesterday morning, I went to fill up the tire with air and had to use a wrench to get it off, which ended up breaking the valve stem and causing air to rush out in a matter of seconds (probably fully deflated in 15 seconds). I switched to plastic ones...

    On the 2019 Soul (or the 2018 since the ‘19 Is brand new)... does it come with a spare tire? If not, is there a storage spot below the trunk to store one if you buy one? Donut or full size?
  14. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I have new 2018 Kia Soul under 5,000 miles. I had a dangerous blow out on major 4 lane highway. My tire looks like it has been sliced off. I hit nothing and I was traveling 65 mph. Dealership said tire isn't covered. I have driven for 48 years, accident free and 2 flat tires. Why wouldn't...
  15. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Will changing my wheel size from an 18 inch wheel to a 16 or 15 inch wheel (hence bigger tires, more rubber) improve the rough and bumpy ride I experiance today? Will it affect anything in a negative way like tight turns?
  16. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I found a killer deal on a set of 2018 Optima take offs and installed them on my 2015 Soul base. The improvement in handling and ride quality was impressive. Very happy. The only issue is a tire sensor on my dash that will not go off. Yes the tire air pressure is perfect at 33psi. Is there a way...
  17. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I'm 75 and definately "old school" so my recent 2016 Soul purchase had one troublesome deficit. No spare, not even a compact version. Just a bottle of jelly and an air compressor:frown-new: So I looked here to see what others had done. Most dealt with getting the compact spare kits from the...
  18. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hello, presently I have the 235 45r18 and was considering switching to the suggested size of 215/55R17 for the Soul + 2016. I highlighted that word since I'm at a loss as to how things work in as far as the sizes one's allowed to make use of. Now, the reasoning (which may very well be off?)...
  19. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Hi everyone, new to the forum, I am trying to re use my wheels from my car on my wife’s Soul, as they look better on it. The front is a 18x7.5 +45 and rear is 18x9 +63. I’m trying to get new tires that will be similar in sidewall height etc, I just don’t know what size for the rear that wont...
  20. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I'll be needing new tires for my 2016 Base this summer or fall. I'm looking for the all-season tire that performs best in snow and ice. I use winter tires in the winter, but I want the "summer" tires to be all-seasons that won't get me killed if a surprise snowstorm hits before I install the...
