    My wife is only 5'3 and she has to do a lot of parallel parking. She is constantly hitting the curbs, and scraping the rims. Sometimes she even leaves her back right tire on the curb. Will this kill the alignment?

    LOL. Before I clicked on your link @HiHoeSilver I thought of that one from a few months back.

    A few possible solutions:
    - hire a chauffer
    - invest in a tire and alignment shop
    - get a vehicle with automatic park assist

    How'd she pass the parallel parking test for her license?

    well, i see this is an on going issue. her height dont have a damn thing to with it. her use or maybe even non use of the mirrors is the issue here. teach her how to park, or start making her buy new tires and alignments and worn out parts due to her poor parking habits.

    Yeah, buy one of those 5 year wheel alignment policies at places like Tire Kingdom and make sure to get the top of the line road hazard and abuse package too for the tires! You'll never get her to pay for it so forget about that happening! Mine was driving around on flat tires and thought nothing of it the other day. But she does enjoy dropping my truck's mileage into the single digits!
