I have investigated Sears Michelins. They could not tell me if they were made in US or Europe. The sales person thinks USA. This falls into the category of tires not worthy of being on a MB. As far as alignment, I have found out, as most of you all have replied, only certain MB shops should attemp the alignment or balancing. Most of this is common sense for MB owners. We all need to try to save money, but not at the expense of inferior products and or maintenance. The Tire Rack offers good tire prices, however after shipping, mounting and balancing you probably can find a comparable price in your area. By the way, I think Price Club's tires are of the same caliper as Sears, being made in the USA. Thank all of you for you feedback, it was very helpful. You probably saved me from a $800 mistake.
