4 Wheel Alignment

Recommended Posts

I've just had all 4 tyres replaced and balanced, I've noticed some posts saying that its best to take the car to a lexus garage to have a 4 wheel alignment done, is this really needed or just a belt and braces approach?

Getting the time to take it in is a real pain.

Any advice gratefully received

No not really, they looked even, apart from one tyre which had a gash in it and the tread was lifting away from the casing. Caught that just in time I think.

peace of mind has no vlaue!

I have an IS300 Sport. My front tyres are fine and still on 4mm at 32000. I replaced my rear tyres at 30,000 miles even though they were still on 3mm. The reason was because although they looked fine the insides had gone done to the braiding and were illegal but I did not realise this. When I spoke to Lexus about it and asked if I needed a 4 wheel alignment they just said it was an issue with all IS models and it did not need 4 wheel alignment. Any suggestions?
