Butler Tire?

Does anyone have any experience with this store? I need an alignment and they are $40 less than the dealer. What is the best route for an alignment for a BMW? Dealer or Butler?

Have not had an alignment at Butler but did get a set of tack tires there (north Fulton store). They seemed to know what they were doing and fas as I can tell, did a good job. Butler tire hslps sponsor some of the local BMWCCA chapter events, like the HPDEs, so I try to return the favor when I can.

Thanks for the reply. Where do you get your car aligned?

I got my last alignment at Grand Turismo East (http://www.granturismoeast.com/) in Chamblee when I got my previous set of track tires. GTE did an excellent job in that they did a non-standard alignment "tuned" for a combination of track and stree use.

I've heard good things about GT. They were the third option:

Dealer
Butler
Gran Turismo East
