Honestly, $120 for a proper 4 wheel alignment on a Boxster is CHEAP. My dealer get's $245 for the same service and I gladly pay it because I haven't found anyone yet in Central Florida that I trust...

Any particular reason you didn't use the proper size 18" tires or are these a misprint?

They should be 225/40x18 and 265/35x18.
