As a side note, it's a good thing I got the 4 wheel alignment. It was fairly off front and back. :)
I use to do an alignment every year and even after a year the specs were always off although now I've been slacking on that front but I also got an alignment in the summer when I got new tires.

Too many bad roads, I'm guessing. Not sure how it is in your area, but where I live can be a bit sketch at time.

Anyway, thanks again for the advice and comments. :)

One final thing. After work, this evening, I thought, "what the heck, I'm gonna check my tire pressure." Three of four tires were 42 or higher!! You'd think that a company who replaces tires everyday would know to look on the plaque to see what the required pressure is for my car [32PSI]. :cautious:

Trust no one.

When I had my (directional) PA31s installed, the genius at the shop put them all on backwards.

The ride home felt a little squirrely, so I checked them when I got home, and of course took them all off and put them on the proper sides of the car.

Pretty much every time I've had tires installed they were always over inflated . They just use a machine to inflate the tires and never adjust them I always check the tires when I leave the shop and adjust pressure accordingly myself. Make sure you check pressure when tires are cold.

Yikes, scottyrocks!!!

kev, I checked my PSI after work, before driving it, so they were cold. But silly me,.....I just assumed a tire store would understand the required PSI for a specific vehicle.
