Hi all, my car just failed due to rear tyres showing cord in one spot, both rears are well worn 2.5mm lowest, though much more so to the inside edges on both wheels. Kwik Fit in Preston did me 2 N2 PS2s for £480 which seemed great as they were the only place with them in stock, but where do I take the car for a proper alignment locally where I won’t have to wait ages to get it done ?
Kwik fit suggest the wheels are out but can’t undo at least one of the nuts!
Any suggestions gratefully received, plus price indications if poss !
Thanks in advance
Rick

Kwik fit. They say they can't undo one nut because the wheel is in the way and limiting access. If they removed the wheel, undid the nut, then put the wheel back on they'd be fine.

Thanks Alex, I put that to them and they said they just can’t undo it and referred me to OPC ....
