Default Austin Area Alignment Shops?

It's alignment time, and with the tire wear I've had I feel like a proper 4-wheel alignment is in order.



Where I live, I don't trust the local shops, so I'm willing to travel and spend a day to get this done. I saw that there's a few shops in Austin, anyone have a recommendation for an alignment place?



Thanks!

This seemingly one man shop has always done me right :

Call and make an appointment, then bring walking shoes to walk around to kill time. On Oltorf just east of Congress.

Whelp, I went to this place and they did a good job with the alignment. Car tracks like a train now.

Only problem is the steering wheel is cocked about 15* to the right.

Long story short, I didn't have time to take it back, being 3 hours out of town and having already killed all day waiting on it. So, I'll be taking it to Firestone after all to have the toe adjusted to re-center the steering wheel.

They seem like a decent place, and if you're local and have time I'm sure it's worth it, but not centering the wheel was a pretty lame rookie mistake. YMMV.
