Smile Tire Rotation

I had the tires on my "07" e350 rotated (all 4 the same size) at BJ's in Jensen Beach FL, this am, cost was $2.00 each tire total of $8 with no tax, about a 30 min wait and I was allowed to observe. Absolutely amazed.

Get the guys working for 30 minutes with expensive equipement for 8 bucks is amazing.
It would cost at least $75 at my local stealer.
But they would wash the car.

I'd worry about use of impact wrench.

As I said, I observed, no problem with impact wrench, are you able to observe service on your car at the dealer? if not are you sure everything is done correctly and properly, if so I have a bridge in good condition to sell. Also they will balance each tire for an additional 6 bucks each which I opted not to do.

Now...about this bridge.... Is that the one over the river? If so, I'll take it, but I want photos first.

Watching help a bit but I wouldn't exaggerate it.
Have you guys hear about torque adapters for impact wrenches?
Now is that bridge in Arizona over the river where it ends to the Ocean?

Glad you talked about torque adapters, torque was set to 70, The bridge is an older one that extends to eastern part of Cuba which is populated with several non-native types.

Rotation/balance at my dealer is $49.95 but the last time I had that done there was a special for free if I bought some other service which I had a "B" service. That was a road force balance for what that's worth. And to Kajtek1, I got a free carwash also no cappucino, they are cheap bassturds.

depends:

If they used the proper "torque stick" your fine. I've used them for years and rarely check with a torque wrench anymore. Torque was so consistent and within a few lbs of the reading on my torque wrench I became a believer.

Have a set that goes between 40lb/ft and 160 lb/ft and they are amazingly accurate.

With a good floor jack and rattle gun, I can rotate tires in the driveway in less than 30 minutes. got it down to less than 30 minutes to swap out summer tires for studless winter tires on my silverado.
