Recently had two new tyres fitted as the fronts were wearing away on the inner edge, the garage that fitted the tyres couldn't properly hang their alignment sensors on the tyres as the car is lowered.
So I had to find a local 4 wheel alignment centre that could perform the task on my E46 Coupe, luckily I'd heard about DP Tyres and they're only a couple of miles away.

I called up off spec and was promptly informed that yes they can fit their alignment sensors to my car
The Hunter Hawkeye Elite alignment equipment they have is only a couple of years old and the sensors locate on the face of the alloy wheel gripping the tyre with 2 opposing clamps , see pic.
This type of clamping method allows the sensor to be secured at the area of the wheel arch with the most clearance which is ideal for lowered vehicles.
Sure enough the camber was out so with no location pin in the topmounts they were slackened and adjusted into tolerance.
One more adjustment on the track rods & we were done, the owner Darren had talked me through every adjustment then asked me to pop back in
after a few miles to see if everything has settled ok , so I called in today and had to have a minor adjustment made.
I'm very happy to recommend DP Tyres , for anyone in the Wigan area it is a great bonus as the closet other alignment centres are at least 15 miles away & I doubt they can compete with their friendly & informative service.
