I have used Hounslow tyres to do mine in the past - some of the staff are young (although thinking about it they have all been there for years) - I also always buy tyres there - prices in the local area are pretty much the same everywhere, while they look a little ramshackle perhaps, I certainly feel they are honest, they know what they are doing and I'm happy to take my car there if my preferred garage is not free soon enough etc.
*The young chap who did my alignment (using old engineers numbers) did not understand at first... I had to make him show me the screen stats until he finally understood what i was showing him - he did a proper job after that. And did warn me that I was deviating from spec blah blah...
I have to say though that my tires did still wear on the inside really fast - i got maybe... 12 to 14months only. these were the cheap acceleras(spelling?) which weren't that great. I since had another brand fitted (cheap - forgot the name) they were better, but didn't last long either. I will do my alignment again in a couple of months at the same place.
My rears have not worn at all - i get that on all the car's I've owned (front wheel drive)

Reason: Edited to not sound so rude about the garage - as I do like and use them often!
