Les Schwabb, wheel works, big-o tires, firestone.....any tire shop can do an alignment doesn't need to be a "performance shop"

Before you take your car anywhere, I would find out the settings you want and tell the shop this is how you want it set, and make them give you a post alignment print out. It's a trust but verify thing. I have found very few shops with an alignment tech that truly understand performance settings. Most will just go off what the computer tells them and call it a day. Especially if you take it to one of the shops just mentioned. Big-O is owned by TBC Corp. which owns Tire Kingdom and NTB. Two company's which I am very leery of.

Before you decide on a tire shop give them a call and ask them if they will do custom alignments. One of the big advantages of moving from the factory to a performance alignment is the smaller "green zone" with a performance alignment. With a smaller tolerance range you will end up with overall more predictable handling and potentially more consistent tire wear.

Here are our alignment recommendations. Let me know if you have any questions!
