Northwest Chrome Wheel Care

WheelKraft NW has over 28 years industry experience and we invite you to see why we’ve been trusted service providers to the Portland area’s finest Automobile Dealerships and Collision Repair Shops. We have worked on everything from Mercedes to Land Rover, and everything in between. One of the biggest challenges we face are chrome wheels.

 

The relatively high humidity can cause chromed aluminum wheels to peel or corrode and chromed steel wheels to rust. De-icing chemicals and road salt used in winter can drastically accelerate the damage to your wheels. Wheel care professionals in the Northwest generally recommend that owners take off their chrome wheels during the winter months to prevent damage. But with a busy life most people either forget to or don’t have the time to do it. The best chrome wheel care is preventative maintenance.

 

Here are some steps you can take to keep your chrome wheels in the best shape possible:

 

1.   Wash frequently with soap and water to prevent build-up.

2.   Occasionally wipe the rims down with chrome polish or baby oil, then apply sealant or wheel wax to minimize brake dust build-up.

3.   If build-up occurs, use high-quality chrome cleaner such as Mothers Chrome Polish.

4.   Leave the chrome in the garage during the winter to prevent exposure to salt and de-icing chemicals that are used on the roads.

 

Chrome wheels are a unique situation and unfortunately we get to do very little wheel repair on chrome for multiple technical issues.  The chrome plating does not lend itself to repair for curb damage, pitting or peeling.  The one good highlight is that we can help when a chrome wheel isn’t holding air and this fix works very well for the life of the wheel.

 

WheelKraftNW offers mobile alloy wheel refinishing in the Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington metro area. Their experienced wheel repair technicians will come to your home or work and restore your wheels to premium condition, for far less than the cost of wheel replacement.

RC (1996-1999)
Tiburon first began production in late 1996. It was available in a few foreign markets with engine choices of either 1.6L or 1.8L. In the United States, the Tiburon was first offered in 1997 with base models using the Elantra’s 1.8L 130 hp (97 kW) engine while the upscale FX received a 2.0L four-cylinder engine. The 2.0L was rated at 140 hp (104 kW) at the crankshaft (the car’s manual specifies 102 kW (137 hp) at the flywheel). Base weight was around 2,550 lb (1,150 kg), giving the RD Tiburon a higher power to weight ratio than the newer GK 2.0L. The 2.0L produces a 0-60 mph time of ~8.2, with a 1/4 mile time of ~16 seconds. In 1998 the Tiburon lost its weaker 1.8L engine, giving both models the 2.0L. All versions of the Tiburon manufactured from 1996-2002 are known as “RD” Tiburons. There were various options, with or without ABS, 2 airbags, leather, and sunroof.
Various special editions were also produced, focusing primarily on cosmetic modifications and improvements. In the UK, Hyundai’s entrance into the Formula 2 World Rally Championships saw the release of the “F2” and “F2 Evolution” models in 1998 and 1999 respectively.
The F2 modifications included a front spoiler lip, mesh grill, 16″ mesh alloy wheels (with Pirelli P7000 tyres), uprated Sony stereo, customised sill plates and gearstick.
Hyundai Coupe F2 Evolution (UK)
The F2 Evolution, available in Silver or Cobalt Blue, was a limited edition (1500 units) whose design was led by McLaren F1 stylist Peter Stevens in conjunction with Hyundai World Rally Team’s support company Motor Sports Developments (MSD).
Modifications included a bigger front bumper/spoiler, modified rear spoiler, high-lift camshaft, 6″x4″ Magnex freeflow exhaust, 16″ 5-spoke alloy wheels (with Yokohama tyres), cream instrument dials, Thatcham-approved Category 1 alarm/immobiliser, uprated Sony stereo, customised sill plates and lambswool carpets.
The camshaft and exhaust improvements saw an increase in power to 154 hp and torque to 140 ftlbf.
RD2 (1999-2001)
2000-2001 Hyundai Tiburon (US)
The RD2 Tiburon is an update on the original RD platform and was released for sale in 1999. The RD2 received a facelift that altered the front and rear bumpers and also provided a refreshed interior dash. In South Korea, the RD2 Tiburon was marketed as the “Tiburon Turbulence”.
The RD2 headlights have separate enclosures for the high and low beams giving the four headlight look, similar to the third generation Acura Integra and the sixth generation Toyota Celica. The rear bumper is also reformed receiving larger tailights. The same 140 hp (104 kW) 2.0L engine was carried over producing identical performance. ABS, CVT and sunroof were available in a package.

The previous-generation Tiburon expired after 2002. Hyundai launched a revised Tiburon in 2002 for the 2003 model year, giving it new styling, larger dimensions, and an optional V6 engine. Tiburon’s wheelbase and overall length grew slightly compared to the previous version, increasing curb weight by about 200 pounds. Base and GT V6 models were offered, both with standard front side airbags and optional anti-lock brakes. Base Tiburons retained a new 138 hp (103 kW) 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while GT V6 coupes got the new 2.7-liter 172 hp (128 kW) V6 from Hyundai’s Sonata and Santa Fe. A five-speed manual transmission was standard, and a four-speed automatic was optional. The automatic unit had a manual shift gate. Also optional on the GT V6 was a six-speed manual gearbox. Base models and GT V6 automatics rode on 16-inch tires, versus 17-inch for the GT V6 manual models. Both had standard four-wheel disc brakes. Leather upholstery was standard in the GT V6, as well as a rear spoiler (high spoiler std. on 6-speed only). Aluminum pedals and a sunroof were optional.
In 2004, all GT V6’s received the high spoiler, 17″ wheels, and ABS as standard equipment. A “special edition” of the GT V6 was also released. It featured a “Special Edition” decal-style badge underneath “Tiburon”, sport cloth upholstery, a Kenwood stereo, red painted front brake calipers, and multigauges above the radio. Only the 6-speed and automatic transmissions were available. The special edition was available in Jet Black, Rally Red, and Sunburst Yellow only. The new design received praise from a number of automotive journalists, some of which compared it to the Ferrari 456.
In 2005 Hyundai facelifted the Tiburon and reshuffled the model lineup; offering GS, GT, and SE models. The SE was now a separate trim from the GT models. Hyundai’s four-cylinder engine went into the GS, while the other two held the 2.7-liter V6. A five-speed manual transmission was standard. A four-speed automatic with a manual shift was optional for GS and GT models, but the SE had exclusive use of a six-speed manual gearbox. Anti-lock brakes was standard on the SE and optional for the GT coupe, which could be equipped with leather upholstery. GS coupes rode on 16-inch wheels, versus 17-inch for other models. All-disc brakes and front side airbags were standard. Anti-lock brakes were made standard on all 2006 model Tiburons.
In the UK, three models were available before and after the 2005 facelift: the 1.6S, 2.0SE and V6. The 1.6S had a single exhaust and leather seats were optional, although following the 2005 facelift half-leather seats were standard. Both other models have twin exhausts and leather seats as standard. The six-speed gearbox was also standard on the V6 model.
A popular modification saw owners of the first GK model removing the air-filter resonator box. The resonator box was located directly in front of the front left hand side wheel, behind the fender. This allowed for a greater airflow to the air filter, gaining a minimal increase of brake horse power (bhp). Hyundai, seeking cost cuts, adopted this modification for 2004+ models. Hyundai also released a new color for their 2006 Tiburon called Regatta blue, between Tidal Wave blue and Midnight blue, which is Metallic. This color is also available for the 2007 Elantra and Tiburon.
GK F/L (2005 – 2006)
2006 Hyundai Tiburon (US)
Hyundai conducted minor tweaks to the ‘GK’ model in 2005, for the outgoing named 2006. The vehicle incorporated reworked sleeker blackened “smoked” headlights, redesigned rear tail lights, more aggressive front air dam, a different range of alloy wheel designs, colored stitching on leather seats (half leather seats available for the 1.6 range).
GK F/L2 (2007 – 2008)
2007-2008 Hyundai Tiburon (US)
A more comprehensive facelift was launched in 2007, named the Coupe SIII in markets such as the UK, this time altering the appearance of the car enough to designate it the fourth generation or GK F/L reminiscent of the RD1 and RD2 denotations.
The headlights are thinner and angled more aggressively; somewhat similar to the original Tiburon headlights with more straight/sharp lines. The tail lights are similar to the RD2 and GK1 but are somewhat smaller and reflect an aftermarket styling. The fenders lose the “gill fins” and other small changes are seen.
The interior is updated with brushed aluminum accents, new blue backlight scheme for gauges and instrumentation and new seats.
Hyundai later introduced the limited, special edition TSIII (uk). This upgraded, limited edition included quilted leather interior with embroidered logos, stiffer sports suspension, quad exhaust exit pipes, a higher level rear spoiler and an anthracite finish to the alloy wheels. The performance of the TSIII remained the same as the SIII.
Equipment and safety
The exact specification depends on model and the market where it is sold but these are some of the features available:
Anti-lock brakes, Dual Circuit with brake force distribution
Front (variable rate) airbags and side airbags
Side impact protection bars
ESP Stability Control (2007)
Traction Control (2007)
Electric windows, sunroof
Heated front seats
Trip Computer
Air Conditioning / Climate Control
Leather / Half-leather / Cloth interior
Sports seats
Alloy wheels (normally 16″ or 17″)
Infinity Sound system
Additional gauges featuring torque, fuel burn rate and voltage
The 20042007 models received a 4/5 star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the USA.

173 hp (129 kW; 175 PS) @ 6000 rpm and 245 Nm (181 ftlbf) torque @ 3800 rpm.
In 2002 the 5-speed retained standard on the GS, GT, and GT Limited, while the upscale SE model came only with a six-speed manual. A four-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic was available for all models.

2.7 litre: (SE 6-speed)
Acceleration 0-60 mph: 7.2 seconds
Top speed: 145 mph (233 km/h)
Marketing and branding
In several markets the model is sold and branded as a Tuscani. The Tuscani wears a circular badge containing a smaller circle of black and grey horizontal bars which is overlaid with a letter ‘T’ painted gold on the left and silver on the right. Even in markets where the car is sold as a Hyundai Tiburon or Hyundai Coupe, the name Tuscani has become quite popular. Many cars have been modified aftermarket to be rebadged with Tuscani emblems. In Canada, a special edition of the Tiburon is sold as a “Tuscani edition”. A rumour has started to circulate that Hyundai is considering a plan to branch off the Tuscani name as a complete sub brand for more exclusive, sporty, and upmarket models. The existence of the name is most likely to achieve greater sales where the Hyundai name has cloying associations with more budget products.
In some markets secondary badging may denote engine size and variations such as trim, wheel, and other options. These badges include GS, GT, SE and FX, although some use FX across the entire range available. In certain markets, certain exterior colors are not available and identification may require noticing subtle local differences such as alloy wheels, spoilers or dealer fit options such as in car entertainment systems. These can all change from year to year and from market to market, so the variation is quite significant. One notable difference is that the 1.6 engine always has a single exhaust on the right hand side, in all markets where it is sold.

Sarah Jessica Parker Queen Of Shoes

Shopping is the luxurious habit of many girls in modern life and for Hollywood ladies too. Hollywood stars have become shopaholics themselves including Sarah Jessica Parker. Some may think that character Carry Bradshaw probably impacts her somehow, but the love for shopping has originated from her inner.

Until now, Sarah has a collection of estimated 100 pairs of shoes, each of which is worth from $300 to $1000.

Keep your Children Safe!

Our children are one of the most precious gifts we receive and at the same time they can be the most vulnerable in this harsh world we now live in. They seem to be growing up so fast and learn so much more than we ever did, especially with access to the vast amount of information available on the internet. Child Safety is not an easy task but it’s our job to keep them safe and we must do what we can to ensure they have the best chance to grow up and enjoy their life.

Most of us drive our children around everywhere they want to go. We live in a day of the automobile and it’s just a fact of life. It’s also our way of ensuring that we have a handle on what our children are doing and who they are hanging around with. But do you really know what they are doing? When they ask you to drop them off before getting to the front door of school or their friends house you assume it’s because it’s not cool to be seen with a parent, and maybe that is the case. But what if your child is visiting somewhere they shouldn’t be? We just don’t know what kind of people our children are actually hanging out with. As hard as we try we can’t watch them 24/7 and it’s not reasonable for their growth or your sanity to try either.

So here is something you can do that might help you to see who your children are visiting or hanging out with. Next time you are asked to drop them off in front of a home rather than walking them in or they want you to drop them off a block or two from what you thought was their destination without explanation, make a note of the address.

Unknown to your child or yourself, they may be placing themselves in a terrible situation. We want to respect our child’s privacy as well as their independence but we also must make sure they are safe. You don’t want to to get a phone call from anyone telling you that your child has been hurt of even worse. But there is a place you can get more information to make sure you children are not hanging around with the wrong type of people. If you have an address or a phone number, including a cell phone number you can go to http://Search4SomeoneOnline.com, place the information in the search text box and you will instantly have access to reports about who owns the house or the phone plus much more.

You can find out things like if they have ever been charged with a felony or a misdemeanor crime, you can have access to their criminal and civil court records just as a starter. Your child will never know that you have checked up on their friend(s) and you will have some peace of mind knowing you have gone the extra mile to ensure their safety. Too many parents have no idea how to check and make sure their children are safe, but this is one resource that a watchful parent just can’t go without in today’s world.

If you are uneasy or suspicious about who your child is visiting or where they are hanging out, all you need is an address, a phone number or even an email address and you can access a huge resource of information. You can find out if any of them present a danger to your child by accessing their criminal, civil court records, marriage and death certificates. It’s worth it to make sure you child is safe and to give you peace of mind, especially in today’s world, we just can’t assume that our children are safe anymore. You just have to make sure. Utilize the tips and advice above along with this site or another site that allows you to search in this way, so that you can be sure your child is safe.

There is no such thing as having done too much to keep them safe.

Christmas Shopping Year Round

shop photoThere are a lot of great advantages to Christmas shopping year round. Some of these advantages include avoiding the stress of last minute shopping, not having to worry about accumulating exorbitant credit card bills during the Christmas season and being able to enjoy the Christmas spirit all year. This article will take a look at some of these advantages in an effort to explain the benefits of Christmas shopping year round.

One of the biggest benefits of Christmas shopping year round is not having to do the bulk of your Christmas shopping at the last minute. It also may means not having to do much Christmas shopping in the typically hectic time after Thanksgiving and before Christmas Eve when malls and shopping centers are usually crowded beyond belief and most people have a ton of other obligations to take care of during this time. Although there are some people who enjoy shopping during this hectic and chaotic time, most people find it stressful and only do it because they have procrastinated and still have some Christmas shopping to get done before Christmas Eve. However, making a conscious effort to Christmas shop all year round helps to eliminate a great deal of the stress which is typically associated with last minute Christmas shopping. It also helps you to purchase more meaningful gifts for everyone on your Christmas list because you are not rushing around to purchase the Christmas gifts at the last minute. You may find a gift you think is absolute perfect for your sister in the month of April. All you have to do is purchase the gift when you find it and save it for the Christmas season.

People who do their Christmas shopping year round are not only less stressed around the holiday season but they also have more free time to participate in other activities. Those who like to bake may skip baking if they feel like they still have too much Christmas shopping to do while those who did their shopping ahead of time can take some time to relax and bake wonderful cookies to enjoy during the Christmas season.

Another downside of last minute Christmas shopping is the amount of bills which accumulate. For those who rushed to get their Christmas shopping done in the month of Dec. the New Year can bring in a new set of financial problems as repaying the debts accrued while Christmas shopping can be quite daunting. However, those who wisely did their Christmas shopping throughout the year do not have this problem. If they budget a certain amount of their monthly income for the purpose of Christmas shopping they may not have even noticed the financial strains typically associated with last minute Christmas shopping. Although last minute shoppers may save up to do their Christmas shopping all at once by putting their money into a special savings account, it can be difficult to stick to a budget when you are shopping at the last minute. This is because there they may wind up spending more than anticipated on each person on their list because they cannot find anything else to buy which seems appropriate. When this happens and there is a shortage of time, it is common to just purchase the more expensive item rather than keep looking.

Finally, Christmas shopping year round is a great idea because it helps people to stay in the Christmas spirit throughout the year. While many of us get caught up in the spirit of giving during the holidays, those who are always Christmas shopping may enjoy these feelings of generosity throughout the year. Giving is a wonderful experience and although you may not actually be giving the gifts until Christmas you are purchasing them at other times during the year and this can be very fulfilling. Sometimes simply finding a great gift for a loved one can put you in a great mood and make you feel as though you have really accomplished something wonderful.
