    To anyone whinging about bob jane/jax or your local tyre shop charging more for a alignment when you've got adjustable everything(toe, camber, caster), you have no idea how long it takes to get it all right
    Most tyre shops have a set price and thats for a simple front & rear toe and maybe the occasional camber adjust, and the reason is coz it generally won't take more than 30-45 mins to do it properly, so labour isn't much and the price is low
    Now when you wanna get done a 2 hour wheel alignment for the price of a 30 minute wheel alignment you can't really complain if 1. they make you wait, 2. they charge you more and 3. if they fuck it up because they're not used to it
    Its the equivalent of taking your supra into a toyota dealership to upgrade your turbo, fit a bigger intercooler, fit other aftermarket parts etc etc

    Always take care when putting tyres on my various different rims. Dont rip you a new asshole for basic fit and balance or strips. Happy to stretch even refitted a tyre for me when it lost pressure and came off the bead (235 on a 10 inch). Cheap Achilles for the drifters
    I'm only surprised that you put it back on..

    its not much stretch and i've run more then that previously.

    Sometimes like sticker on the side of the tyre causes air to come out not a big deal. It wasn't on the car when it lost all its air pressure

    I think one of the guys who works there is on here and drifts or something. I cant remember.
    Anything wheels related I always go to jax livo
    Keiran is a top bloke who knows his shit and he's on jdmst as well
    And yeah he drift his s13

    The wheel alignment bloke - aaron is another top bloke
    He will spend 2 hrs if he has to just to get the right spec you wanted

    I've had numerous wheels stripped and fitted without any dramas
    Wheel alignment always 100% satisfied with it

    Highly recommended
