Take the bumper off when you get to the shop? It only takes me a couple minutes. But then again, I have had a lot of practice.

My car still makes it on to the rack at the shop I go to.



But I'm in CA. Might be a bit of a drive for you.

The only thing I do myself is camber and some caster adjustments. Other than that I take it to a shop and let them zero in all other aspects

I first took my car to Sears and they did awesome. I asked for -1.5-2 degrees of camber, to max out the caster, and everything else to factory specs and the tech had no problem with it. Although they were worried about mounting 17x9 +38 with 245/40's on a car with an OEM size of 16x6.5 +55? (or 53?) with 205/55's

Also, my Subaru dealer has an alignment rack that sits flush with the garage floor. Theoretically you could drive onto the rack while laying frame.

Where do you guys go for tires? Have any of you guys bought from tire rack? Or just local? Looking to buy from tire rack then have a shop mount, balance, and maybe align

I get tires from Americas tire, but they order from Tirerack (from what i was told from the tech), which they dont charge shipping on me for(looking at the bill).

From there, Americas tire mounts, and balances.

So far, I've bough two sets of tires.

First set was a set of stock 205/55/16 RE92 tires I got off a guy on i-club for $200 with about 400 miles on them.

Second set was a set of 235/40/18 Toyo Proxes T1R tires that I got from Auto Innovations in Milpitas for $400 new.

I've gone to Auto Innovations for all my wheel/tire needs. I've gotten all of my alignments done by them and I have bought a set of wheels from them in addition to the tires.

+1, they usually have the best prices on tires. They can become more expensive if you buy the extra warranty though -_-

Thegonz-lookin good, reminds me of digital Dillion's setup what suspension mods do you have?

Looks good, needs tint. Not a fan of the fish bowl look.

I've been wanting to but the influx of gas prices raped me of my spending money.
