the amount of Tyre shops that have tried to tell me what I want for MY car is wrong. my car is too low *whinge whinge* and that I need more rubber is through the roof.. 1. I understand the risks, 2. ITS MY CAR
Lucky the guys at Taleb know what they are on about..
oh and for wheel alignments if you live in Sydney and don't spend the little extra to go heasmans then keep going back to your local Tyre shop that have no idea about alignments and GTFO this thread.
I use Jax Smithfield for tyre fitting and have had no issues.
Decent bunch of guys who dont mind stretch
This is true, great for getting stretched tyres fitted. Alingments are good most of the time. Next time I go I'll be reminding them to check all the adjustment bolts though.
Oh and they are happy to do the alingment to your specs too. Also don't mind alinging slammed cars (they've done all mine over the years), they take car of getting it on the hoist and all that shit too.
Saturdays are super busy, if you need to get stuff done be there when they open or book it in! Most times there is a wait to do things, but I'm sure if you book you'll be fine (I barely book).

A shop I regually use (JAX Smithfield) did an alingment on the missus' S14 and the dropkick doing it forgot to tighten the rear left camber and toe arm. I didn't notice it until a week or so later (car doesn't get driven much), and fixed it up in the garage.
Speak to Michael, he's the franchisee and a top bloke.
