Need to get mine all lined up after ive fitted the hicas lock out bar but rang pro tyre and they wanted £130 + VAT which is alot more than i expected to be paying. I aint paying over the odds just cos its a Skyline.

Anyone used anywhere else in Bristol?

thats about right since you need a proper 4 wheel alignment (not the usual 4wheel alignment where they only align the fronts to the rear), adjustments made to all 4 wheels for toe and then camber set too.

make sure you specify they MUST adjust the rear.. not just align the fronts to it..
(fukwits that did mine left one with 9degree toe in and the other side toe out! even though id told them it needing setting beforehand)

have you removed your hicas? if not its not the same thing since it wont matter if they dont adjust the rears as theyre still controlled by the ecu.

im not sure about the tyres mate never had any fitted perhaps pro tyre is the one for that as they have done loads and if they do scratch them they can sort it and they are just down the road

I guess the money i save on the tracking/cambers i can afford to spend the extra few pennys on getting pro tyre to fit the tyres lol.

Cheers for the info maff
