The wheels should be a 5x114.3mm or 5x4.5" bolt pattern.

Wheel hub size will have to be correct as well, if not, you need to get the correct hub rings to make them fit snugly onto the hubs, or you will experience wheel vibrations due to them not being centred properly on the hub.

offset is important too, most Kia's use a +35 to +45 or even +50 offset (this determines where the centre line of the wheel width is in comparison to where the hub/mounting point to the vehicle sits.

You can google all this info for your kia to find out the exact measurements, then ask the people selling the rims if they know what the details are for the rims they are selling.

If all else fails, take one wheel off, put the wheel you're looking to buy onto the vehicle and see how it fits, how far the edge sticks in or out of the wheel wells etc. and make your decision on that.
