Does the Niro EV come with a spare tire?

Fri Nov 30, 2018 9:57 pm

Or is it like many other electric vehicles I've learned about from forums that they don't have a spare tire, only a can of tire-flat goo stuff??

No it does not come with a spare tire, sorry. Same as all the other SUVs, they shave weight to increase the range.

Looks like Kia kept the retaining bolt for the spare tire, so you could buy one from Kia.

Or, there's gotta be another KIA vehicle with the same bolt pattern as the Niro EV, so you could buy one cheap at the wreckers and bolt it down in place of the charging cable organizer...

Thank-you! This is the information I was looking for.

I will talk to my dealer and start researching other tires from older KIA models.
