Custom Wheel Alignments at GMP Performance!

Just wanted to pass this along to our local Southeastern US people! We are fully capable of alinging your ///M's suspension for street or track!

Click here for full details!

We are excited to offer in-house custom wheel alignments using the latest, state-of-the-art alignment equipment from Hunter Engineering. Our mission in the alignment business is to incorporate our passion for performance oriented upgrades to provide the best possible custom alignment tailored to an individual's driving style. Today's vehicles are increasingly technologically dependent and thus these advanced type alignments require state-of-the-art equipment to reset a vehicle's computer programming, in addition to the mechanical adjustments.

In addition, preventing damage to standard and custom wheel packages with low-profile performance tires requires extreme attention to detail and with our staff and equipment, we 100% guarantee that your wheels will not be damaged.
Our revolutionary equipment also allows us to offer to perform a detailed alignment check free of charge. Stop by today and take a tour of our shop and the latest alignment equipment.



WinAlign Software

WinAlign is Hunter's proprietary alignment software. It is unrivaled in the industry. When it comes to award-winning software, WinAlign® is unmatched! Here are the features of the WinAlign software.

It all starts with a wireless VIN Scanner that allows us to quickly and accurately read the vehicle's identification number giving us exact details on the make and model.


+Express Align - Perform every alignment with a streamlined procedure. ExpressAlign analyzes each job and presents the optimal action sequence with the minimum steps required.
+WinToe - Ensures a straight steering wheel every time without repeated adjustments or using a steering wheel holder.
+Tools and Kit Database - Saves trips back and forth to the tool box. Hunter presents all of the tools and aftermarket correction kits needed for each alignment.
+Virtual View - Picture your alignment job in 3-D using real-time 3-D models. Used by experts and novices alike.
+Control Arm Movement Monitor - Cut adjustment times in half for front-shim, dual-cam or dual-slot vehicles.
+Shim Select - Shim Select II quickly calculates and displays the template we need for proper shim installation.
+Automatic Bushing Calculator - Calculates the proper bushing size and position adjustment without wasting time with a zero bushing.
+Suspension Body Dimension Audit - Quickly screens vehicles to determine alignability and collision repair needs.
+Live Ride Height Adjustment - Measures and adjusts ride height in real-time.
+Symmetry Angle Measurements - Instantly access symmetry angles and setback for your body shop customers.
+WinAlign Tuner - Perform alignments on tuned suspensions and other modified vehicles with tools to monitor tire wear and handling.
+Customized Printouts - Customize Hunter's detailed printouts to help explain service needs to customers or to document repairs.





The HawkEye Elite Alignment System Consoles include powerful Intel® processors, running Hunter's latest patented version of WinAlign® alignment software on a Windows® 7 operating system. HawkEye Elite systems include Hunter's patented and award-winning CodeLink® electronic steering system reset device and a VIN bar code scanner as standard features. The software supports the use of a drive-on camera to assist with positioning the vehicle on the lift and the TouchRemote™ feature, which lets a technician operate the system remotely using an Apple® iPhone®, iPod touch® or iPad® device.

New and patented QuickGrip™ adapters and three-dimensional targets accelerate service with set-up times in seconds instead of minutes. Spring-loaded clamping arms adjust easily to various wheel sizes, and a simple thumb lever locks the clamp in place. Technicians can quickly attach the adaptrs without concern for a perfectly centered target; off-centered positioning has no effect on measurement accuracy.




The system's patented clamping arms grip the tire tread instead of the rim edge, removing the worry of damaging expensive rims from metal-to-metal contact. Only a protective rubber ring at the base of the adaptor contacts the rim. The entire adapter and target assembly weighs only six lbs., making it easy to handle and install. A special shop-tough polymer construction makes the assembly tolerant of accidental drops. The target itself contains no electronics and requires very little maintenance. Additionally, the assembly's ultra-compact profile easily fits between narrow lift posts and other tight constraints.

New and patented HawkEye Elite digital imaging sensors include four high-resolution cameras that instantly update adjustment readings on-screen. Working with the newly designed targets, HawkEye Elite sensors provide 3D modeling of wheel position and orientation for the most accurate alignment measurements. Roll-forward compensation, exclusive to Hunter, allows a technician to compensate all four wheels and capture initial measurements in one quick motion. AWhen equipped with the timesaving capabilities of an FIA (Fully Integrated Alignment) lift, the system produces vehicle measurements for the customer in as little as 90 seconds.



Code Link

CodeLink recalibrates the steering angle sensor (SAS) to match the final alignment angles of the vehicle, as required by the OEM, to complete an alignment.

Currently over 10 million vehicles require a SAS reset after alignment. Over the next couple of years that number will rise significantly with manufacturers adding electronic stability control (ESC) systems in all new vehicles by 2012.



Our mission in the alignment business is to incorporate our passion for performance oriented upgrades to provide the best possible custom alignment tailored to an individual's driving style. Today's vehicles are increasingly technologically dependent and thus these advanced type alignments require state-of-the-art equipment to reset a vehicle's computer programming, in addition to the mechanical adjustments.

In addition, preventing damage to standard and custom wheel packages with low-profile performance tires requires extreme attention to detail and with our staff and equipment, we 100% guarantee that your wheels will not be damaged.

Our revolutionary equipment also allows us to offer to perform a detailed alignment check free of charge. You can click on this link to get a full detailed overview of the equipment. Stop by today and take a tour of our shop and the latest alignment equipment. We will get your car on the rack and provide a free alignment check including a full color graphic printout.

Here is a shot of an E46 M3 getting an alignment the other week. Not an E90/92, but still an M3

I can vouch for these guys. Had my E90 M3 aligned there last Fall for a track alignment. Steering wheel was dead on straight and car tracked true. Customer service was excellent too, I was in Charlotte for a grant meeting and couldn't get away to pick up my car so they delivered it to me. Would definitely use them again.
