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

Kia Carens RP (2013-2018) 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.
