Denver alignment recommendation?

Just put my winter wheels on and Discount Tire is recommending Brakes Plus. Is that the best option? Or is there an indipendent shop out there somewhere that knows what they are doing? Thanks?

BMW dealer. They don't charge too much more than other independent shops and they know the exact specs on our cars.

Im having SCR do mine, but I am having them de-camber and de-toe the rear wheels a bit, so that way they dont wear so damn uneven on the insides....mine were literally on the cords. They said the only thing it will cause is the rear end of the car to feel a bit more 'free', which is fine by me anyway, as I have always felt that the car had a bit more understeer then oversteer. I prefer it oversteer

you mean more positive camber in the rear? Most cars will have a little bit more negative camber in the rear than the front.

Sure, whichever makes them point more outward and makes them more straight instead of in. They will adjust it as much as they can with the stock adjustments.

Go to Firestone. The one of arapahoe is where I go. Ask for Aaron. It's like $100 for lifetime alignments as long as you own that vehicle. You can go get one every week if you would like.

This sounds too good to be true. I'd pay more than $100 if it's really lifetime
