Kia Rio rim sizes 2001-2012 ...rim contour designation/tire bead profiles
Well I`ve got a new 2012 Rio lx. It has P185/R65/15 tires. The dealer wants like $100.00 CDN., plus for a black steel rims. So I asked them if the older model Rio`s rims would fit. They gave me not sure and a bunch of other dumb responses. So can anyone tell me if the rim sizes have gone up from 2010-2012 or even 2001 -2012 intotal? Also the tire contour designation is J. Actual manual says 5.5J x 15.It has 4 x100 bolt pattern. Hub and offset..I`m not sure. This confused alot of tire guys off in other shops I went to. It`s also called the Tire Bead Profile. If the rim sizes have changed then the wrecking yards won`t have what I need. The wheel size designation is probably written inside all the original owners manuals somewhere as it is in the 2012 Rio. So if anybody has some help on this one I`d be greatful.
