    Default Best place for tracking and balancing

    Where would you guys recomend I take my car to have the wheels rebalanced and the tracking checked?

    Are Kwik-Fit ok? Or would you suggest the stealers?

    I also have a small tyre specialist place near me.

    The stealer will do the wheels for £4.50 a corner and check the tracking for free (if it needs adjusting its £35!!)

    Kwik-Fit will do the balancing for about the same and only charge £21 for the tracking.

    Just need to know who I should 'Steer' clear of!!

    Thanks

    Standard Design 17s mate.

    I take it that the stealers will be just as good as a tyre specialist with the ballancing?

    I'd look for a garage that has laser alignment kit, much more accurate.
