    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 3)
    I'm new to Soul ownership and a big question in my mind is how is going to be in the snow. Just looking for advice on weather or not to install winter tires. My GT has 18" rims that are great for handling but probably not the best for snow and I know that taller tires tend to work better for...

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    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...

  11. Problem with tires losing air

    New Member Introductions
    I have a Kia Soul 2014. Two of my tires lose air and the warning light comes on about every two weeks. I, of course, then put air in the tires. This has been going on since I bought the car in 2014. However, it has become more frequent. I have replaced two tires for various reasons. Also, it is...

    New Member Introductions
    Hope do upgrade my wife's 2001 PT Cruiser. Will buy a new Soul Plus before end of year. I'm reviewing the existing inventory of cars & some have the 18" tires & some have the 17" tires. I assume that the 17" tires would ride smoother than the 18" tires, correct? Any other comments on tire size...

  15. Brand New Kia Soul Tires Not Covered By Warranty?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Is this for real or is my Kia dealer pulling a fast one? I leased a brand new Kia Soul in 2016. As a retired Senior, I don't drive that much and so far have put less than 5,000 miles on it in two years. I've gone beyond the required maintenance and have had the oil changed, fluids and tires...

  19. New Rims/Tires

    New Member Introductions
    Got some new wheels and rims for our 2016 Soul Base. We went with the 17s on the rims (Helo HE894s) as a compromise between 16s and 18s, plus the rim we chose only came in 17s so that made it easy. Went with a larger profile 215/55 tire to make up the difference and not roughen ride comfort...
