It was that time to get the Toyos in the ES rotated (once every mid-fall and mid-spring season), but also an alignment since it had been slightly pulling to the right on the roads. Decided to give the local Sears a try tonight (they're usually open till 9PM, and the mall is right there to linger around)
Rotation and alignment totaled $72 for 2 hrs work, which is not bad.
The guy who diagnosed the tires was pretty knowledgeable and answered the right questions for me. Sears was using a Hunter DSP alignment machine, which is pretty accurate and up-to-date. The data sheet below proves my finding of the car pulling to the right. Now no more worries about any alignment or handling whack in the future
Anyone have any experiences using Sears for general tire services?
