KIA SEPHIA TIRE PROBLEM

2000 Kia Sephia • 88,000 miles

Greetings. Will 215/60/14 tires have clearence on my car? I had the same tire size/rims on my old Chevy Lumina. I live in Florida and rain is a problem. Need the extra traction.

Extra width does not mean better traction when we are talking about wet road surfaces. You have a higher risk of aquaplaning.

Standard is 185/65/14. I think you are overdoing it by going for 215/60/14. The tires would most probably be caught by the fenders and you most probably would not be able to make full turns without the tires brushing against the wheelhouse.
