Default Wheel Alignment Prices and where?

I've read that pepboys are bad but can someone chime in on this? They currently have a $10 coupon off alignment on their website which is very temping.

I've also had friends that went to firestone and come out with good feedback. I'm also considering discounttire. Does someone know where to get a quality four wheel alignment for a good price?

It isn't the name on the building - it is the person who does it. We've got a guy who has been doing it for 27 years and gets the alignment perfect. Another guy only cares about getting the adjustments in the green for his .8 and backing it off.

Talk to guys from your local car scene, they'll know. Heck, a guy around here works at the Honda dealer and hes so well known evos, corvettes, and whatever else are constantly in the parking lot for an alignment.

BTW, if you go to a Firestone Complete Autocare and get the lifetime alignment don't let them sell it to you for $179.99. They can sell it at for $159.99 at the lowest.

They can go lower if they are really hurting for ltas but it's rare. Firestone also will send out 50 dollars off an lta to returning customers.19accord97 is right though, it's all about the tech.

Discount doesn't do alignments, and I wouldn't even trust them rotating my tires.

my local firestone does a lifetime for 150~, so if you plan on keeping your car find a location with a really low bay
