I have a rear-end whine the dealer has been unable to resolve. I'll probably end up taking it to a local reputable drivetrain shop and get it fixed out of pocket, but that's mostly because there's...

Do you have personal experience with this dealer? There are several dealers in my area that appear to be incapable of getting anything done in less than 2-3 weeks.

This is truth.

With a 'factory' alignment, I would get significantly greater wear on the outside edges of the tires, even rotating regularly.

When you say car wash, are you referring to those automated washes that pull your car through?

If so, The ultralites may be too low. Mine are, but I'm also running lower profile tires.
