Alignment and possibly tire installation in Northern Nj

Looking for a place capable/comfortable of doing a full alignment on my car this spring. Also looking for some place that is able to mount w/o scratching 345/30R19 on 12" wide wheels.

Needs to be located in NNJ, suggestions?

I will be looking for a place also snice I will be doing a full SPL rear suspension upgrades and also need track alignment done.

I always pass by this shop and has high-end cars parked outside with race numbers and slicks. I haven't reached out yet but I will probably give them a call and feel them out.

AZP Installs in Kenilworth does my alignments and tires.

A bit farther north, SJF Performance in Oak Ridge is another solid choice.

As result, both extremely busy - call ahead.

Yes the quoted me for the alignment. They are also looking into tires for me that I have yet to purchase for the Apex wheels I have. I asked them about mounting/balancing and they have a very nice Hunter machine there it looks like from a video on their website.

If things go as planned I will be buying tires from them, getting them mounted/balanced, and the alignment done. They discussed going beyond just factory values and come up with a setup based on my usage in conversation. I have some complaints with swinging to the right under WOT that they'd approach.

I have already relocated the harness in the rear drivers side and flattened out the material. I still have to notch the MRC up front.

I've spoken to them and sold them parts. Seem really knowledgeable and they service the local track guys well.

As far as alignments I can’t recommend “Ivan’s alignments” more. He does amazing work, located in cliffsidepark

+1 for apex. I know the owner well and have been working with him for several years now for track alignments, tire changes, and some maintenance. He's my go-to for setup and we've done a bunch of events together w/ PCA.

He will set your car up exactly based on what your goals are and knows what he's doing.
