I'm having new tires put on (who knew that would take a month?). I decided to go back with the Goodyear F1 Supercar tires.

I don't have a Fisker dealer nearby (or anything close to it), so the GM dealership is the one doing the job. They've never worked on a Fisker, but they do Corvettes and Cadillacs, so I figured they can do the job. They also have the ability to work on wheels up to 30", so they have the equipment.

The manager called, though, and said that it looks like they need to be aligned. I explained that the tires are designed to melt, but he said that the wear was obviously greater on the inside of the front tires than the outside.

Since they have no experience with the car, I don't know if what they're seeing is normal for a Fisker, or do they really need to align it? I'm nervous that they're going to do more damage than good.

I did end up opting for the alignment. He said that the front was bowed out a little, and the rear were bowed IN a little, so it definitely needed it. I can't tell a difference in how it drives, but I guess it was $80 well spent if it makes the tires last longer :-/
