    When I lifted mine, I drove it for a week before getting aligned, but I only have to drive 12 miles to work so I only put a little over 100 miles on it. I'd say you could put a couple of hundred miles on it without hurting your tires, but no more than that.

    I could be wrong but I'd think the speed in which you drive would matter more than how many miles. 50 miles of 65-70MPH driving on a highway would probably be worse than 100 miles of 50-55MPH driving on rural/city roads.

    A couple hundred miles shouldnt be bad, keep an eye on the tires.

    You can check/adjust the toe yourself with a tape measure. That would be the big thing to worry about.
