im a flight nurse in a different city and have to drive 27 miles one way to the hospital and i need my ride to be smooth and still keep my bad ass low look, if i have to i will trade for the prokit

thanks to all

Can you be more specific about what you're calling a flat spot? Are you referring to a completeley bald area such as the edge of the tire. Is it in only one area of the tire (localized), is it a series of cupped like bad areas around the tire? Can you post any of the printouts from your alignments as those numbers could be very helpful.
