Best All-Season Tires for Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is a compact crossover with a design intended to draw people's emotions to the Kia brand. It has earned a number of awards encompassing design, safety and value. Many Soul drivers request a tire that features good snow traction; and since snow is the most difficult surface to deal with, it only makes sense to prioritize that area.  

There are a number of different tire size options used across the various trim levels that Kia offers. With that in mind, always double check the size you have on your current tire to make sure you get it right the first time. The following are some top picks for the commonly used size of 205/55R16.

Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus 

The best all-season option for drivers who covet good snow traction is the Pirelli P7 All Season Plus. While it does give up some wet traction in exchange for winter capabilities, most people will never use more than half of their available traction. That makes it a worthwhile trade-off if you have to deal with snowy conditions. 

Michelin Premier A/S

The tire's expanding rain grooves minimize loss of wet traction over the life of the tire. It also offers very respectable snow traction. It's always hard to go wrong with a Michelin tire!

Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Continental's PureContact with EcoPlus Technology provides excellent wet and snow traction. Ride quality falls a little shy of the other options, but nothing too concerning except for the most discerning of riders.
