    Don’t go to pep boys they’re not very trust worthy but it depends on the car how much it will cost what kind of car is it? It also depends on their labor fees. I go to a local mechanic and I pay low labor fees sometimes no labor fees because I used to work there.

    Go to another shop and get a second opinion just to make sure. Many shops will try to sell you work that you don’t need. I had been a mechanic for 12 years and worked for different shops.

    Have them show you the untouched parts.Show you the manual specs (the minimal thickness)for that year make and model.Tell them to show you that they are undersize.By taking a micrometer and measuring the thickness.If they won’t or can’t you,tell them to put wheels back on and go to another place.
