Do any of you know of any shops in the GTA that have a scale to weigh cars, like either the entire car, or (preferably) with independant wheel scales, so you can see the weight distribution of the car?

Most junk yards have weigh scales, but they're usually off (so i've been told). And I can't see a truck weigh station letting me in, although I have yet to try.

A couple of buddies of mine actually went to a truck weigh station ans asked the guy if they could, and let them do it. This was a couple years ago, but you have nothing to lose trying. Just dont go when they're busy with trucks. Anyone else suggest anything?

Go to the truck scale on Dixie and 401. Randy and i have been there a couple of times, so we can use the G-tech meter.
Make sure you say the bimmer guys are the cool ones, He might ask for so cash depending on the guy working. Go later at night when it is not busy, i think it is still open 24 hours.

It depends on when/if I'm working.

Today's the last chance for you to come during the night (less trucks)

I'm there from 10pm to 6am.


Then I'm in on the weekends. 2pm to 10pm

ya,but the odd's of finding which one does in advance and planning a meet around it would be hard...not to mention the line up's for it
