Well when I got the Falkens on the SSEi at Sears they tried three times and never got them balanced right. Took them to NTB, and they got it perfect first time.

They've been doin' 'em forever. But it will depend on who they have back there. Read your labor guarantee, just in case...

I give Sears the thumbs down! I had my Bonneville in there to get aligned. I think all they did was screw it up in the opposite direction. They showed me the alignment numbers for before it was aligned but not after. I took it to a different tire place a few months later and they got it great. Had a 90 day warranty there too.

Like MOS95B said, check the service agreement...look for a warranty.

Every single place is different..and has different people. Ask around your area..find the relliable places.

All the tires that have ever been on my bonne were bought there. Decent prices and seemed to do a good job.
