    Each trim of the 2017 Kia Sorento has the same size wheels. The front wheels have a diameter of 12.6 inches while the rear wheels are 12.0 in diameter. The only major difference is the painted calipers in the SX V6 trim and the SXL V6 trim. The former has red painted calipers while the latter has black. Not a major performance booster, it's simply a decorative or aesthetic concern worth understanding.
