Has anybody had there VW aligned in the Athens area recently? Whelchels will no longer do old VWs.

So here's what I have found so far; many places won't even talk about working on our old VWs, but University Tire on Mitchell Bridge Rd. says they can and will align our VWs. I'm taking the Squareback I there tomorrow morning; I'll report back with my findings.

Hit a little snag this morning. The shop says there is a problem with my upper torsion bars. I guess I'll check into that this weekend.

They do want the club's business and they think they can balance wide five wheels as well as aligning our cars. Call and ask for Bo, he is super nice.

University Tire can also get 165/15 tires for us.

Good to know. I got my tires @ Hopewell on 129, but I don't know about alignment.

Hopewell is another company that seems to be old VW friendly. I know in the past they have done alignments. The only problem I have dealing with them is that are not open on Saturdays.
