Brand is just half the story.

On this pic: http://www.cleanmpg.com/community/index.php?media/31373/full&lightbox=1&last_edit_date=1482977994, you can see the front undercarriage of a Niro. There is no central front point to lift. The best would be near where the torch is pointing there is a black rectangular part sticking out, you can also see one on the other wheel. Those you can use as lift points.


The rear underbody is here: http://www.cleanmpg.com/community/in...ate=1482977994. You would normally use the center of the shaft between the two wheels, because it's the only flat sturdy part. But the exhaust runs there, so you can't. And I don't see anywhere else that is flat. So you can't (or shouldn't).


Edit: By the way these are from the 2017 Niro car who did the Guinness World Record...

Done. I got to the fronts by jacking with an adapter at the rear welds and lifted the rears under the springs (with a rag on the plate), as pictured. No problems.

Sorry, I'm not psychic. OEM is not a tire model. Your tire model is printed on each tire. Asking a simple question.

As far as I know, the exact same tires come with every Niro in North America, differing only in size. Do you not own one? The only tires I've ever seen mentioned here as coming with the car (OEM installed) are Michelin Energy Savers A/S.

OK, thanks, that's all I wanted to know.

No, I don't own one. I am a Soul Man.
