Just got a new SXP and trying to love it. Having issues with the factory Goodyear Assurance tires. I don't drive with a heavy foot and had vehicles with more HP and torque but these tires slip in dry and wet conditions. I noticed that most of the other tires on the LX and EX models are Michelin or Continental tires. Does any one else have an issue?

I have the same issue with my Cadenza. Pushing 290 hp through the front tires of the Carnival is near the limit of what they can handle. You just have to learn to launch more gently, or get some wider tires to give you more traction.

I don't have a Carnival yet, but have a '16 Sedona. It's "only" 276 hp, so I don't have as much problem spinning them, other than the occasional chirp, or maybe a little spinning on wet roads. My '14 Cadenza is 293 hp FWD and I'm chirping or spinning the tires way too often.

I think Kia should put in a limited-slip diff. That would help. Or offer AWD.
