Hi, I want to buy brake calipers from an America dealer but they don’t have my exact car model in their system (2013 Kia Optima Platinum). Is there an American kia model that has calipers with the same specs as my car (size and configuration)?

Thank you for writing in. I was not able to pull up any part information on your particular model's brake calipers in order to compare them to other models. The Kia Optima TF MY14 Platinum was only released in Australia. The easiest option may be to call a Kia dealership and speak with their parts department. They have factory databases that can give you all of that information. Good luck!

You will need to purchase brake calipers from a Kia dealer or from an independent shop that can get either the OE part or a good quality after-market part from an independent parts supplier.
