A properly set up computerized wheel alignment machine, used properly
by a trained operator, will give you an excellent alignment every
An uncalibrated unit, run by an untrained tire installer at a chain
tire store has as good a chance of giving you a good job as you have
of winning a lottery - twice.
Find an alignment expert - with ANY kind of equipment, properly
maintained and used.
The computerized system just makes it faster and easier.
