Gran Turismo East Tel: Call Kieran at 770-455-0347 3306 Shallowford rd,. Chamblee GA 30341. This is the ONLY tire store in the Atlanta area that I found (DickA) CAN, and WANTS TO, do the highest quality work when it comes to Tires & Wheels. They will first balance your wheel/tire assembly on a computer controlled machine and then mount it on the car & do it AGAIN - using two (2) people to actually spin up the tires! It will be PERFECT at all speeds. If your wheel and/or tire is not perfectly round they have the equipment to true it! You will find that Gran Turismo is ALWAYS very competitive and they FULLY GUARANTEE their work.
ALL the Racers and all the "high-buck" car dealers & shops use Gran Turismo East - the ones that have customers that won't stand for anything less than perfection. I might add that they also do REAL Alignments, Quality brake work, Suspension Tuning and are Fast & Courteous. Website MAP Email Put cursor HERE for important notes on Balancing
From our Dec 2005 issue of TFRB
May 2002 TFRB BP Rebuilders, Inc., 1420 Canton Rd., Marietta. (770) 427-5872. This firm specializes in the rebuilding of generators and starters. Returning home from the recent Easter parade, the generator again started overcharging, fortunately with the amp meter installed I was aware of the situation immediately and turned on the headlights which cut the charging by half. This has been an ongoing problem for several years with the '39. I took the generator to the firm and it turns out the armature was just about burn uped (melted solder inside the generator), the bearings were worn severely, and the brushes were on their last leg. The firm installed a new armature, bearings, and brushes and tested the rebuilt generator along with my voltage regulator to insure that it was putting out about 6.5 volts. They did this work in 24 hours so the car was not out of commission very long.
