a wheel balance and allignment for thirty bucks :shock:

mate if you want the tyres to last then get the allignment done at a front end/suspension specialist ie. pedders. Youd pay a bit more but it will be worth it in the end

If he tyres havent come off the rim or been let down they should be fine without a wheel alignment!

I'd get the car aligned and the wheels balanced. But you can probably live without it.

wheel balance doesnt need to be done if they have been done before and theyres been no major kerbages as theyre balanced to counter for the inbalance of the tyre .........id get a wheel alignment, especially if the rims are a differnt size to your old ones....

well i went to get a balance and alinment and it turns out they had retreads on them and the walls of the tyres had started to crack so a $100 trip turned in to $800 trip
