DO NOT GO TO CRAPPY TIRE !

They'll charge you like $1 000 000 for shitty work. They have like one certified mechanic and 20 apprentices.

Worst case scenario is that you may have a bent suspension component (tie rod end, control arm, etc.) or you might just need an alignment.

don't know any alignment shops out there in RM, sorry, but in mississauga, the International Automotive ...something, (check the yellow pages)

probly not much help ... huh?

One of the best allignment shops is Woodbridge Allignment. The owner name is Tony I think. They are not cheap but they know what they are doing.

And the other Cavy guy broke his car too?

You should be able to get an alignment anywhere, I didn't like the job Crappy tire did on my car - it felt slightly better but I know it wasn't done right.

Now the body shop is gonna fix it

Don't go to AMD auto ( at woodbine between HWY7 and 14th)either, they steal your belongings there. I've seen it in person when I was working part time there.

Yes, I agree. AMD is a very sneaky shop. They stole my BMW tool sets from my trunk and I'm postive they drove my car around for a joyride.
