4 Wheel Alignment in LA?

Just putting new Michelin Pilot Super Sports on my 135 today, and wondering if I should do a 4 wheel alignment. The dealer recommended it when I was there for my 15k service and my rear tires were shot and apparently worn slightly unevenly (even though I do pay attention to inflation)... Better to have them do it or an independent shop? Any recommendations? I'm on the west side in LA.

Cheers,

ryan

go to Firestone, if i'm not mistaken you pay a certain amount 100-150 and can bring your car back for additional alignments all year long. This way you will be paying full alignment price but can bring your car back anytime!!

ps. yes I have a friend who brings his civic in for alignments every other day LOL

Alignment for BMWs is different than other cars. And most Firestones cannot do it. The honest ones will tell you straight up they cannot do it. my friend had very bad experience at Firestone, didn't ask to fill up the tank, didn't pop the pin, and no report. it was bs....

if you were gonna spend $100+. go get it at some where good that can let you sit in the car while doing the alignment.
