Where is the best place to take my Zaffy for wheel alignment?

The inside top surface of both the front tyres wear away, it did this on the standard rims and suspension setup but i've since replaced the suspension with eibach springs and put bigger rims on so it's probably worse now.

Cheers for the link Sterl but unfortunately there isn't one local to me.

Found this one in Cardiff that looks good http://www.aatyres.co.uk/align.html there is a printable 5% off coupon on there too.

I went to A&A tyres in Cardiff today the tracking was out by more than a degree on each wheel. Got it sorted for £27 with the 5% discount

being out by a degree isnt that much at all considering the state of the roads, we dont do tracking unless there more than 3 degree's out because it feels like we would be ripping customers off...

hmmm maybe i misunderstood what he said then because he said they were well out and the insides of my tyres were wearing away. The steering definately feels better now. I've got an alignment report printout but it doesn't make much sense to me.

lol if you think how small 1 degree is it would'nt make it wear unless they were out by alot more you hit a pot hole or a curb and it pushed it back inj the right direction. but if they are worn that bad and you didnt replace the tyre's, the tyre's will just push the tracking back out anyway...
