Default Wheel Balance in Northern VA

Can someone recommend a good wheel balance shop in N. Virgina? (Hunter Machine??).

About a week ago, I hit a large pot hole on 14th st bridge going into DC. Took it to local NTB for wheel alignment and balance but they did a **** poor job. I then took it to a Honda dealer where a friend of mine works and confirmed that the alignement was way off and got it corrected but still having vibration problem. At this moment, I don't trust NTB (any local shop I don't know) and I am looking for a recommended shop for a wheel balance.

Thanks in advance!

Try Hollin Hall Automotive on Ft.Hunt Road. They are TireRack recommended and very good people to work with.

I used Merchant's at Duke Street near Landmark. They use Hunter for wheel balancing.

Default RE: Balancing

Hello, If you feel like traveling to Frederick, I have a Hunter TCS3500, and a Hunter balancer in my garage at my house. I have 2 GS 430's with 20's, and a LX470 with 23's, and never have a problem. If you are still in need, feel free to come use my machine, won't cost you anything.

Now there's one great offer. Maybe we should have our spring meet near your house... a wheel balancing party. Who's in?
