Bender at OK TIRE seems like a pretty good idea to me.

Dale's Alignment in Surrey/Langley. I know it's a distance from Vancouver, but is a quality shop ~ $80 for an alignment. Jason, who works at the shop, is a member of the club. I think he posts under Jason T.

Dale's is also great, I just thought it was out of the way for Jo. Yes, Bender's does allignments...I think most wheel/tire shops would...you should get an allignment when getting a new set of tires.

JP, they are located right behind Wolfe Subaru. In fact, if you were to get an alignment done at Wolfe, that's where they would sent your car.

either Super Racing (they have some hi-tech european gizmo that dosen't touch the wheel lip when mounting the tire), or advance automotive in richmond (8 years and they've always been good to me). advance has the laser thingy for alignments, and it's friendly to cars that are too low (like me! )...

well, technically, we do, but since I'm usually the guys that does them and I HATE doing alignments, I try to do as little of them as possible.........unless you're really really special

I think Dale's would be the place to go. He does a good number of subies, and he's been a cool guy on the phone.
