2021 Kia Seltos SX Turbo - Steel Grey
First road trip with the new ride. Absolutely LOVE this thing.
235/40R19 - they don't affect the speedometer hardly at all. I think it's 2kph difference at 100kph. (102kph instead of 100kph).what size are your wheels and your tires ?

I don't remember the offset of the rim. I think it's 40. Factory is likely around 55. So they do sit out flush with the fenders. Looks great. Not really great for the driveline. But meh, my factory winters are on for about 7-8 months out of a year anyway.
19s will be more noisy compared to 18s (less sidewall).
I've had this out in the mountains all 2020. I did 27 summits.Not sure what state you are in, but how did it handle going up hills? Any transmission heating problems? How did the turbo do?
I haven't tracked elevation gain or anything like that, but we have lots of steep hills and curves and it's been fine. Out in the backcountry it heated up a little bit going slow, but I was moreso 4x4 at that point and that's harder on it than driving up hills and curves.What is the highest altitude that you have had it to? I have heard that the trans heats up going up hill. I haven't had any problems with mine, but I haven't had to take a trip to the other side on the Continental Divide yet. Was just wondering how the transmission reacted going up steep hills and on curves.
I've noticed in the mountains it has a habit of gear searching, idk if anyone else has found that issue? I no longer run my seltos in "smart" and never ever use cruise now as those two things seemed to help.Thank you very much for the info. There has been so much talk about faulty transmissions, I was curious about using them in the mountains. We have plenty of mountains here in Colorado, I just haven't had time to visit them.
I think the big thing is to get them re-programed. Seems like the ones that have been are doing OK. I think the engineers got ahead of themselves when they approved the first program that runs the transmissions. But who knows.
the thing is, here in southeast asia we seltos user get 215/60R17 as standard (for both our 1.4L TGDI and 1.5L CRDI engines) and I’m planning to transfer my rims and tyres set from Kia Senot to my Seltos when it get delivered. They are 235/45R19 and mazda cx5 19x7 ET45 wheels.235/45R19 will throw your speedometer out. Just an awareness for you. And it could rub on the inner fender well.
You can do what you want. However, as a former mechanic I never recommend upsizing more than 0.5% with the overall diameter.
Your setup above is 3.9% difference.
