Tire alignment

I am in naples florida traveling in a 1999 bambi. I have discovered one tire is badly worn on the out side. I have found a replacement at a local goodyear dealer and he reported it was caused by bad alignment. I am having a hard time finding someone to align the tire becaus all the tire is not exposed. anyone have any experience getting tires aligned?

I'd recommend that you find a shop that will do a road force balance. Have both tires balanced. It might be about $20 per tire and some labor costs but this style of balancing will lead to longer tire life and less vibration.

JBinKC: Do you know of any shops that will do this in the KC area?

Jeff:Northtown Auto Clinic at 2235 Taney St. in North Kansas City did mine. The service manager and techs are very competent and AAA recommended. The lot in front of the store is big enough that you can easily get your trailer in and then back it up to a service door. Northtown is at 816.842.1777. Best wishes, John
