Looks like they extended the deal.

I got it done this week and it was pretty much what I expected for $10. Car was put on a lift and my summers were taken off and my winters were put on with a pneumatic impact wrench. Overall, it was quick and they had a very clean shop but I was disappointed that they didn't use a torque wrench. Can't complain much for $10+tax. Hope that helps for those on the fence!

Thanks for info, I went ahead and bought one. BTW whats the disadvantage of a pneumatic impact wrench over the torque wrench

Thanks.

Pneumatic impact screws in the lugs, torque wrench measure the tightness of the lugs. If they don't do it after installation you should torque it yourself...the tightness on wheels is very important.

Correct. And hope that they used a/or correct torque stick with the impact. Without, it'll be way over torqued or under torqued if they used even the correct stick.

Cold deal since 95% don't own a torque wrench. What shop doesn't torque to spec?? It's literally a 2min process.

Looks like they extended it again.

Does anyone know when the voucher expires?
They don't indicate it on the site.

Hoping to get it so that I can switch back to my Summer Tires in March/April
I bought 1 voucher in December. It expires in June 2013.

if they used an impact wrench to tighten bolts than this is a pretty cold deal. good luck changing a tire in the future by yourself if you don't have a breaker bar, let alone a flat on the side of the road with a tire iron.

as for the alignment, 4 wheel for $60 is a better deal (ksl, altech etc) than $40 for 2 wheel as offered.

You can go to any reputable shop with a torque wrench and get it done for $30. Cold deal.
