Question Cheap shop for alignment+ putting on tires?

I should be getting some tires soon (online) and was wondering if anyone knows of a place that can give me an alignment and put on a set of tires, balance ect.

Kenwood Tire in Bridgewater, they do a good job and usually have coupons on their website. My car will be there next week after I get my new struts installed.

You've won the lottery, TFT is about the worst you can get IMO. They fudge numbers, ignore stuck/frozen adjustments, terrible.

Must depend on who you get. The last guy I went to was very good and thorough. I heard him saying that if there are frozen bolts, you can replace them and come back and they'll do another alignment for free. I did, however, take my Miata to Tire Pros in Seekonk. NEVER again. Horrible.

I just had my truck at Kenwood last month and did it for $69 with coupon.

They are also affiliated with Tire Rack and are great to work with. I've found them to do excellent work and would recommend them to anyone.

I've always found that Firestone presents you with this ridiculous recommended repair list of things that are "wrong" when you go in.

I've used TFT in the past but I totally get the dislike. When I special ordered a wheel/tire package for my last car through them I had to fight to get the tire size I wanted for the wheels because they claimed it wouldn't fit the car w/o rubbing. They also will not mount tires on wheels that aren't mounted on the vehicle already without signing a waiver. The guy then quoted me with "we can't guarantee we won't damage your wheels" which was a huge red flag.

Kenwood had zero issue and were competitively priced. They matched the cost of Tire Rack plus shipping on my last set of BFGs for my truck. Unless I find the elusive 2011+ BBS takeoff set for sale with tires, I will use them for the next set of tires on my STi.
