I have a dim recollection of reading that spare wheels are not equipped with tpms valves, as they are only needed temporarily.

5 months waiting now. I've been using my wife's car for longer journeys as having no spare in the Niro is a bit worrying. Have just begun to look around again to see what is available with a full-size spare. Would be a financial loss to trade the Niro, but I would do it for peace of mind.

Looking around it seems a direct match tyre and alloy together with jack and brace will cost about £250. Have any members done this already with their Niro. Any info' re' this would be appreciated.


Hi i don't know if this helps Dear Mr Lay

Thanks for your email. I'm delighted to hear of your interest in the Kia Niro!

Whilst we plan to release a spare wheel kit for the Niro, at present we can't provide an estimated date for when it'll be available.

The kit will include, a full size 16" Alloy Wheel (not a space saver) and the relevant tools (jack, tyre valve, wheel brace etc) and will retail at £106.92 + VAT.

If you could provide me with your postal address, I'd be happy to have a brochure sent out for the Niro.

If there is anything else I can help with, please get in touch on 0333 2022 990

Kind regards

just been looking at: kiaaccessoryguide.com -it is the US site.

There is a spare wheel kit on it !! Must be coming soon surely?

Part No GSF40AK920 Looks to be generic but you get the wheel size for your vehicle presumably..
