The Right Spare Tire Kit Engineered Specifically For Your 2019-2023 Kia Niro (Including Hybrid and EV Models).
Kia and Hyundai are rapidly becoming major players in the Hybrid and EV market. Like other carmakers looking to save space, weight, and boost efficiency, a spare tire is one of the first items to be sacrificed to achieve that goal. Furthermore, this does little for your peace of mind as you travel. The Modern Spare approach gives you back that peace of mind while going above and beyond the quality of that old spare the factory no longer provides
How we do it-
We guarantee the Modern Spare Spare Tire kits to be the highest quality and best choice for your Kia Niro. Here is why:
To make your Modern Spare Kit incredibly simple to use, we designed an aluminum alloy wheel that is significantly lighter and more capable than a conventional steel counterpart. As a result, our spare wheel/tire combination is easier to handle. The low weight improves your Niro’s performance and driving range when compared to a heavier full-sized spare. Also, to maintain excellent standards of quality, our alloy wheel meets or exceeds all the latest DOT highway safety standards.
In addition, each spare wheel is equipped with a durable space-saving tire with a DOT “M” speed rating indicating the tire is tested for a constant speed of 81mph. While it is wise to limit your speed to 50mph as some tire manufacturers state, we have chosen these “M” speed-rated tires knowing the tire’s strength and capability exceed that of normal use. This ensures that the tire is durable and well-built.
This, along with having the proper overall rolling diameter for your vehicle, will allow you to travel the needed distance to a repair shop you trust with your vehicle.
To make our Spare Tire Kit better for your Niro, we considered the frustrations that come with typical spare tire tools. As an example, most scissor jacks are difficult to use and do not provide the needed leverage to easily lift your car. We solved this problem by developing a custom low-profile scissor jack with a unique ratcheting handle mechanism. This handle provides the required leverage to easily lift your Niro and lower it safely. We have carefully designed our jack to lift your Niro properly at the designated lift points. Also, since Hybrid and EV vehicles are generally heavier, the Modern Spare Complete kit will have a heavier 4000lb capacity jack compared to a smaller 4000lb version.
If you find a stubborn or overtightened lug nut, our Modern Spare telescoping lug wrench provides nearly two feet of leverage. You’ll be able to easily remove and retighten your lug nuts to quickly get back on the road.
And something worth noting, modern vehicles have very specific lift points for proper jack placement. More importantly, your vehicle requires a specific jack type to properly lift the car. In other words, the type of head on the jack is critically important for proper use, whereas a typical generic or universal jack will simply not do. We design our scissor jacks in-house and specific to each make and model we support.
As a forethought, we included a full-size, thick plastic tire bag. Transporting a full-size flat tire and wheel can be messy. Therefore, placing the large plastic tire bag over the failed tire will help protect your car’s interior.
By now, you’re aware that your Kia is missing a spare tire. Like many carmakers, Kia is no longer providing this important lifesaver. In many cases, the old factory-provided spares are no longer suitable for newer, more sophisticated EV and Hybrid models. Modern Spare wants to be the best manufacturer and provider of complete spare tire kits hands-down. We have approached our Modern Spare designs from every angle. This ensures that our customers have the best user experience possible with the best product possible. Please reach out to any of our helpful staff for questions and assistance.

The rim appears to be very well designed for strength and lightweight. Kudos to the engineers. And they put a high-quality tire on it. When I had questions they responded within 24 hours, including on a Sunday evening!
1. Wheel diameter is close to the OEM
2. Stores in the wheel well with plenty of room for the emergency kit
3. Lighter than an OEM tire
4. Fit’s all 4 wheel Niro EV locations (KIA EOM donut does not!)
