^this!

with factory alignment my stock tires had a lot of cupping and inner wear.
you have a few option for some affordable wheels. xxr is pretty popular (not my cup of tea). option lab is another. how wide and aggressive of a setup are you planning on running?
I'll throw this up there again just because I didn't take the advice that was given and had to listen to cupped tires. If you're unaware of how it sounds and plan on keeping them for a bit, just think "really bad wheel bearing". Thousands of miles on those things made me regret not taking it to get an alignment after purchase.

That's absolutely wrong. Most tuners prefer Open Source (Tactrix OpenPort) for tuning but you can still get a pro-tune with an access port. Not sure if Sniper was trying to say something else and it didn't come out right. From many posts that come about people tend to agree that, in hindsight, they should just have gone Open Source and not paid the extra cash just to have the Access Port hanging on their dash. But some also prefer it because they don't want to have gauges hanging from their dash. This is only part of what it does and, again, can be used to pro-tune and flash maps as you can with Open Source.

Thank you. I am highly considering going to AMS to get a protune now that i know they are nearby. and yes they offer COBB AP tuning for a decent rate. Although it would put me back around $1200 for the AP itself along with the tune.

I just checked, theyre located in chicago. This would be a bit of a drive so im wondering how much better a protune would be than just an OTS map. Would it be worth the extra $600(not including gas there and back) to get it?
