Yes, I agree that NTB is probably about as bad as sears, but I haven't had any
bad experiences there.  I have switched to a place called Butler Tire, and
they are very professional, fast, and do excellent work.  As far as your
mystery alignment goes, since I always feel that I am getting screwed at the
shop (no matter which one) so I usually find an excuse to stand with the tech
while the work is being performed.  Perhaps an annoyance to him, but I feel
better that way.

BTW, that is interesting that they will match mail order ad prices.  Did that
price include installation?
