Camber: -0.1/0.3 Positive camber on one side? .4 degree totally unaceptable
Toe: 0.15/0.10 Run 0 toe.

Rear L/R
Camber: -0.9/-1.2 .3 degree difference not good.
Toe: 0.20/0.05 .15 difference in toe **** poor also. Again set to 0.
"
FM, 949, Mnet, Icehawk, etc all have reasonable settings to use. I like 949's for the taller ride height. -2.0 camber front, -1.8 rear camber. 3.5 to 4.5 caster. 0 toe all around. For better tire wear you could back camber 1/2 a degree all around if you like.

That shop did a poor job. Those aren't even close to factory specs which is what they should have been shooting for if you didn't ask for something different.

Factory settings: Suck as they actually call for positive camber in front!
FRONT
Caster +4.43°
Camber 0.4°
Toe 1/8"

REAR
Caster not applicable, there is no adjustment possible
Camber -0.72°
Toe 1/8"

Oh Jesus....

Yeah, sorry dude, but the mis-matched tires are going to feel like ***.
The alignment is...well, I'd be willing to bet that they didn't even turn a single bolt under your car. That ***** INSANE. I cannot believe an "alignment shop" would let a care go with such wack settings.
As was pointed out, it takes a bit of driving to get the mold release off the tires....but I thought that was common knowledge.

I figured the tires as everything else need some sort of break in I really dont think thats the reason the car feels as shity as it does now. Is ridicuolus the bad costumer service around the are, shops just really dont give a ****. Also this service coming from Tire Kingdom O_o really makes you think the standard and sevice quality level. As for the staggered Ill get another set of Neos next paycheck

Bond kiss my ***... Hustler is from Texas you guys take the cake with the dumbasses driving miatas

buffon i hope you learned from this experience and if, you get **** done in the future be more of a stickler with how people treat your car if they do something you do not care for or, act like they dont know what they are doing get your car and get the **** out of there. Eventualy you will find someone, who wants to make the profit on your work, and is willing to do it correctly, as apossed to the shmucks who just gloss through the **** and hand it back to you fucked up.

It's Magna. That only one word was butchered is a big step in the right direction. Magna, props on getting 90% of that sentence right! Don't let the haters hate.

Just don't **** magna off...it makes his grammar worse.

That may be his secret weapon. He makes us put up with his WoW commucation skills and if we bitch about it he turns it up a few notches until our heads hurt just glancing over the post.

I've seen it...it's real..and it's mind-bending.
