Wheel alignment??

Guys I usually get my alignment done at dealer but need to get it done asap tomorrow as dealers are shut and I am going to do long distance. Car has brand new tyres with balancing but its been 3 years since I got my last alignment and it has started to vibrate a little at 100kmh to 120 kmh after I drove over some rough surface towards Wilsons Prom a few days back.
Has anyone had experience at Tyre Power North Melbourne? Wanted to know who had been there before or recently and if they had a good experience for alignment. Many thanks and a happy new year!

Vibration is not from alignment its from bad wheel balance.

I agree with Duck. Hopefully when you get your wheels balanced they're not out of round.

You guys were right. It was bad wheel balance on all four corners and not the alignment. Car is riding perfect now and vibrations are eliminated. Thanks a bunch!
