Default Reputable Wheel Balance/Tire Install shop

Any recommendations on reputable wheel balance shop preferably road force balance. Have some issues with my Continental Extremecontact DWS06 tires. Looks like they develop flat spots and vibrate at all speed, more when tires are cold in the morning. Replaced tires for the third time right now and still not satisfied. I am in central jersey, Trenton area.
Thanks

AZP has a brand new road force machine. Not exactly around the corner from you but maybe an hour or so drive on a Saturday.
BTW I have the same tires on my '15, just got them recently, and yes they tend to flat-spot overnight as have most of the UHP-AS tires I've had but then they're fine after a few highway miles. If you've got constant all-speed vibration something's up, AZP should be able to help you figure it out.

Thanks Guys. AZP is a bit of a hike but if i can cure my problem i don't mind driving. Having michelins before was a different story, much better than continentals. i did one road force balance on the previous set at the dealer. That didn't help but at the same time i have the feeling that road force was never implemented, just regular balance.

Get in touch with AZP and discuss it with them, see what they say then decide if you're up for the trip. You will definitely get the RF balance and if there is anything wrong with the wheel/tire combo they should be able to find it.

Agreed, some tires "take a set" (you say flat spot....semantics) fairly quickly. I have run a few sets of the old DWS, currently have a set of DWS06.
I will say, on non ABS cars, locking the brakes WILL tear chunks out of the DWS.
Three choices.....live with it (no way), shave to round, replace.

To the OP, tires "taking a set" is either long term sitting in one place (month or more) or cold temps. Since we are in similar weather, cold is not it.

Let us know how it works out!

For those on Long Island looking to mount tires, please stay away from RCT Performance. Their Yelp reviews are 100% fake.
