    Hello i had my tundra for about 6 months love it and ran off two drive way curbs around 5 mph twice in one day both on passengers rear tire i was having a blonde moment. Can that mess up the alignment or the truck bed alignment i noticed that one tire seems offset my husband noticed it not much it sicks out the body a little on the driver side the passenger seems like its even with body. Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpfull. Um think the truck is tuff and can take a lil drive of a crub on a left hand trun i hope.

    Hey Julia..........No way will that light of a hit mess with your alignment. These trucks are designed to take a beating like a truck should. Not sure about your bed alignment. Probably would have never noticed it until you ran off the curb and checked the truck for damage. Ha Ha ! Good luck with everything.

    Thank you for your advise it dosent seem to be miss aligned the bed all the body lines are intacted. We did notice that when parked on streert the passenger side leans a little bit is that normal really didnt notice it till it happened. When driving its stright my huabans drove behind me and was normal and parked on even ground normal but on our street leans maybe cause the curve of the street any thought would be appreciated.

    Check the sidewall of the affected tire & see if there is a visible split in it. If no visible split then with the palm of your hand & tips of your fingers lightly slide your hand around the the perimeter of the sidewall on both sides & see if you can feel a bulge somewhere, then do the same on the treads. Any splits no matter how fine, or bulges, indicate damage. If you're still not satisfied have your tire put on a balancing machine at a tire dealership.

    Think you're stressing a little to much over probably nothing. I know it's a new baby to the family, so maybe run it by the dealer and tell them your concern and leave out the curb jumping part. Oh........welcome to the forum too !

    My wife has moments all the time. We chalk it up to "shit happens" LOL
    These trucks take a lot of getting used to...curb checks and not parking evenly between the lines.

    If you search this forum you will see there are many worries about one rear tire sticking out farther than the other. It seems to be normal on Tundras.
