Multiple choices for wheels - all with Michelin tyres

Maintaining a policy adopted early in the original car's evolution, Kia continued to develop the new Kia cee'd chassis and running gear using Michelin tyres exclusively, so that its engineers could tune the new model's characteristics precisely for a specific type of tyre size, compound and construction.

The close collaboration between Kia and Michelin also allowed technicians to optimise the cee'd tyres to minimise rolling resistance and maximise fuel economy - without compromising road holding, handling, ride and refinement.

The standard wheels for LX and EX new Kia cee'd models are 15-inch diameter 5.5J wide steel wheels with 5-spoke full-cover plastic trims. LX models are equipped with 185/65 R15 tyres, while EX models feature fatter 195/65 section tryes. Range-topping cee'd TX models have 16-inch, 6.0J alloy wheels and 205/55 R16 tyres - as standard.

In most European countries, new Kia cee'd models will be offered with a wide choice of optional wheels and tyres, including a 16-inch steel wheel with 10-spoke plastic trims, three designs of 16-inch and two of 17-inch alloys - including new 'D Type' 17-inch 5-spoke wheels finished in Hyper Silver and supplied as part of the factory-fitted optional Sports Pack.

The 16-inch diameter wheels will be fitted with 205/55 tyres, while the 17-inch wheels will have 225/45 tyres. All cee'd models come with a steel space-saver spare wheel - located in the trunk floor well.
