I have inner an outer edge tyre west on the front tyres so needs to get the alignment sorted.

My local place that does 4 wheel laser alignment with a printout is £78!

Do kwik fit so similar places do laser alignment?

I had it 'tracked' once and left the garage worse Raman when I got there so don't just want the fronts aligned to the rear.

Any suggestions?? Cheers.

£78 :'( Im not tight.....but i wouldnt pay that! My local tyre fitting store [independent but big] charges £50. Id ring round all your local tyre bays if i was you. You'll save at least £20 im sure :)

Is that for full 4 wheel laser alignment or just getting the fronts tracked?

They put the reflector things on all 4 wheels and they have in the past taken a blow torch to the rear of my Alfa to adjust something on the rear so I assume 4 wheel? But I'm not that technical

I pay £15, but I have got to know the chap well over the past few years.

His full price for all wheel alignment is £40.

But he is based in Dudley.

The one I'm after is the one with the print out.

Formula one auto centres do it so will be contacting them tomorrow.

I got mine done here for £45. Properly done using a rig connected to a computer so was super precise unlike the older laser methods. Also got a nice printout of the before and after for comparison :)

I paid £74 for a full geometry set up, using the hunter system. I know this has come down a bit but its worth every penny imho. The car will be more sure footed than the usual/old tracking way :)
