Can anyone recommend anywhere locally that can set up my tracking for me?  I've been to North Lincs Tyres, Bush Tyres and Kwik Fit - none of them had the kit necessary to fit on to 12" wheels.

I'm getting a bit desperate as the tracking is well out!

North Lincs Tyres used to have one that fit, they just didn't know how to use it  Laughing  I took one of mine in years ago and they said the track rod ends wern't long enough but got it close as they could (bearing in mind there was nothing wrong with it when i took it in, i just wanted it checking).
When i drove up the road the tyres were squealing!  Laughing by the time i got it to Grimsby Tyre and Exhaust it had scrubbed about 5mm off the tyres  Crying or Very sad They tracked it up spot on and said there was nothing wrong with the track rod ends.

It was North Lincs Tyres in Grimsby that I went to - their gauges fitted the front wheels but the brackets for the ones on the rear were too long and wouldn't make contact with the rim, just the tyre, which is no good.  They offered to have a go but I said no - there's no point trying to set the tracking if you've not got matching contact points.

I don't know Grimsby Tyre & Exhaust - where are they?

Yeah if your paying them to do it, you want it doing properly.
Grimsby Tyre and Exhaust was on Ladysmith Road Opposite where Blue Crest used to be. It's now Kingsway i think so they could be worth a try, or there's National Tyres on the dual carriageway bit in cleethorpes (The old Audi Dealership).
Failing that you'd probably have to go to someone like Sleaford Mini Centre or somewhere.
