Thanks for the link, I used Wembley Tyre Services to realign the wheels. Appears the toe was out on three of the four wheels causing uneven wear. Hopefully sorted now!vchachanidze said:

Had a long chat with the bloke on the phone and he seems very knowledgable, helpful and reasonable.
They charge £38+VAT for the initial measurement, which basically gives you a print out of where the car is currently at.
They can also tell you about worn bushes etc etc.
Then it's a similar rate per hour for adjusting stuff. I was banking on it being around £100, so should (fingers crossed) get it all sorted for that kind of money - subject to any new bushes etc being needed............
I'll post feedback so we all know whether this is a good place or not.......

Did they need to make any adjustments to the wheel angles?
You tried a good body repair center?!illjah said:Anyone else done this recently? I really think I need to get mine done, as the lack of grip in my tyres at the moment is concerning me, and i feel the quality of the tyres and tread left should not be giving me the problems I have at the moment.
Also my closest place according to http://www.alignmycar.co.uk/ is a bloody Kwik Fit centre!!! I don't really have faith in these types of places....
I was after a full kds allignment, and only know how to find "hunter" equipped garages using the link I posted above. I guess I'll try speaking to my nearest which is a kwik fit, but there is also another one in cambridge listed, so i might drop in and see how competent they appear.BURTON said:You tried a good body repair center?!
I don't think you are being too harsh. Personally, I wouldn't go anywhere near them..............illjah said:Am I being too harsh on Kwik Fit? Should I speak to them as well?
A good bodyrepair place should be able to do this. I know the place in Chelsmford can do it.Rob Plummer said:I don't think you are being too harsh. Personally, I wouldn't go anywhere near them..............
Would you trust the kind of place which sprays WD40 onto your granny's shockers, tells her they're knackered, and then flogs her 4 new ones......?
(Legal note - not suggesting for one minute that Kwikfit do that kind of thing, but I know it goes on within the tyre/exhaust industry - just in case someone wants to sue!!)
