Wheel alignment Queens??

Hi guys, I am looking for a good wheel alignment place in forest hills, flushing area. The dealer wanted to charge me 179 for an alignment but I'm trying to find a cheaper place. They mentioned that not all shops would be able to align a BMW cause BMW has some steering angle software which requires some special equipment.
If anybody can recommend a shop to me based on personal experience or word of mouth, I would appreciate it, thanks.

You should go to RCT Performance. They're good at everything with cars.I told another member here about this place. They've done a wheel alignment for my M6 and for a good price too.
Here's the address.

12216 15th Ave College Point, NY 11356

I went to these guys: 106th St Tire & Wheel
Tire shop is 24/7 but Alignment is 9am-7pm
Its only 59$ for my e39.

One caveat, tell them to be careful with your rims, those 3d alignment pieces that attach to each wheel have prongs that WILL ding your rim, I'd tell them to be careful not to scuff the lip! Hell, put painter's tape!

Those guys will search for your spec (toe in/out camber/caster etc..) and align, but I am sure they will do custom!
Let me know how things go!

A $59.00 alignment is not a complete alignment. You might as well just keep your money in your pocket. We will be posting a detailed article on alignments because we have seen way too many customers coming into our shop from other places because an alignment was not properly done. We invested in one of the top of the line alignment racks at our shop. Our customers notice the difference after they drive. We invite you to come down for a tour and look at our alignment technology.

Can you PM me a quote on installing new tires: mount/balance/alignment???

I was checking this other place around queens, they have good ratings at tire rack and I asked them for a quote, they said all these would be around $150

$55 alignment
$110 mount/balance

If you are saying $55 is not a full alignment then what is?

Thank You!
