I plan on getting an alignment and wheel balance performed soon and have a couple of questions.

Would a truck tire dealer or an RV service center be better? (I have Goodyear tires).

What is the typical cost and amount of time to perform the operation?
Should I remove the wheel liners myself to save time (and potential damage)?

I am located in Southern Connecticut. Would anyone be able to recommend a location based on personal experience?

Any help appreciated.

I had my alignment done at a Goodyear truck tire service center. They are set up for the large vehicles. Most Rv service centers wont be able to perform that service. I paid about $90.00 for the alignment. I didnt have the tires balanced. Takes about an hour and I would recommend removing the liners first.

You've posted this same question twice, which creates confusion with responses in two different places. If you think you need to have a message referenced fro two different sections, please create a link to it rather than duplicating the text itself. That way, all the answers will be in one place.

Here's a link to the duplicate question and the answers there.

Same question

I had my new Sightseer 29R wheels alligned and balanced at a Goodyear Truck Tire Service here in Washington State. They asked why I wanted this done on a new motorhome. I said humor me. They had to add wedges to align the tires properly. Alignment and front wheel balance cost 150.00.
