Adam’s Tire Shine 16oz

Shiny! Shine last for WEEKS.. Shine last even during the rain.. The “Chemical” doesn’t get slung all over your car (If you wait 20 – 30 minutes after using).. It smells GREAT, easy to apply (I use the adams foam block).. It last for a LONG TIME (It just takes a couple drops to do your entire tire).. Overall, GREAT STUFF!! I love it and will continue to buy it!!

Tips
1.) The bottle says it does take 2 hours to fully dry. I wash my car at a carwash (Safely) and I made the mistake of using this “Last” during one of my washes.. It did sling onto my car but not bad (I left right after I sprayed this). Now I use this first after washing my car.. I then detail the interior, clean the glass, and vacuum the car.. All which takes about 30 – 45mins.. Now this doesn’t sling on my way home!

2.) If you want more shine you can just spray this on your tires and no wipe off! Just give it time to dry. You get a deep SLICK shine the

My REAL LIFE FUEL Economy
Base Infotainment System Review

I normally don’t do car reviews (Because I don’t buy a new car often) but did recently get this and wanted to let folks know what I LIKE about my new car!

Short Review (Summary): Great CAR! Excellent GAS Mileage, full of features and you get a lot of car for the price!! I would recommend anyone looking for a hybrid to give this a shot! A lot of features and car without the Hybrid “Premium” price tag.. Size wise, this is between the Soul and Sportage.. It also falls between those two price wise so again a Hybrid without the premium tag

Version: LX
Color: Black
Mileage : Purchased with 4 miles now I have 1201 on it (only on the third tank of gas and it is at “F” at the time of this review)
Average MPG: After 2 tanks, on my third I average 51.2 MPG

Vehicles are very personal.. What I like, you might hate.. What you like, I might hate.. What meets my needs might not meet yours.. With that being said, this review is based on what I LIKE about this car and how it is performing for my needs

Pros
1.) Hybrid – Gas/Hybrid Engine..
2.) Dual Clutch Transmission – No CTV like a lot of hybrids have.. The dual clutch is awesome and in “Sport” mode this has a lot of power for a hybrid
3.) Gas Mileage – I normally average 50MPG by the time I empty a tank.. It starts out looking like you are going to have pretty bad gas mileage, but wait until you empty the tank!! You will then probably have the average up to about 50MPG in the LX version
4.) 500 – 550 miles per tank of gas! Great for road trips!
5.) AndroidAuto and Apple Carplay – Mine doesn’t have GPS built in but no need with AndroidAuto which is standard in these. I can use google maps or waze
6.) SiriusXM
7.) Stock stereo is pretty good.. If you get the technology package you get a GREAT Stereo
8.) Sports Mode – Sports mode is very sporty for a hybrid!!
9.) Great interior – Doesn’t look or feel cheap! Yeah, its not the fanciest interior but its not some cheapo feeling $10,000 car interior
10.) Great Size – I test drove this, a Soul, and a sportage.. The Niro is sized right in between both of those..
11.) Great PRICE – Not only is it sized in between the sportage and the soul, it is also priced between them!! You don’t really pay a premium for the Hybrid Motor.
12.) This little car will travel for about 10+ miles on EV only if you are level and doing between 40 – 60! That’s great for a hybrid
13.) Push button start
14.) Plenty of room for travel and friends!
15.) Very Smooth Ride

Cons
1.) When using battery power the “Range until Empty” doesn’t seem to go up so as far as I can tell the “Range until Empty” is just an estimate based on what the gas motor is using. I am sure something is taking into consideration the electric motor when it shows the range but it doesn’t update.. For example, around 40MPH going down hill it will use the battery motor for several miles and the entire time it will say 432 miles until empty even though that hasn’t changed in about 5 miles and has been on EV mode for about 5 miles..

2.) Does not include spare tire.. I purchased one online for about $160 though. The wheel well for the tire is there but the car only comes with a can of goo and a pump

Overall I love this car and so far I haven’t found anything I can’t stand about it! Yeah, there are a few things Kia can probably change but by no means does that make this a bad car! Its excellent and I would highly recommend anyone looking for a Hybrid to give this a testdrive

Genuine OEM Factory 2017 Kia Niro Spare Tire Kit (Applies to all factory wheel sizes)

Note:  This is more of a “Safety” review than product review.. I recommend everyone always have a spare tire, especially if you enjoy the outdoors like myself!

As all Niro owners know, we get a can of goo and a pump for a flat tire.. for a lot of folks, this is enough.. they never plan on changing a tire themselves and will just call roadside assistance.. nothing wrong with that BUT I got a spare and here’s why

Reason 1: In the past 10 years I have only had two flats.. both ended up being blowouts and a can of goo will not fix those.. id rather change the tire than wait on a wrecker.

Reason 2: I travel a lot in the mountains.. Limited cell phone coverage so now way to call a wrecker

Reason 3: One of my flats was on a Sunday.. no tire shop in my area are open on Sundays so I’d have no transportation

So yeah, I purchased this and am very glad I did! Fits my Niro perfectly and locks into the wheelwell without any issues.

I highly recommend this
