    also, you would do a major service to other members in your area by naming the dealer as a warning to them.(y)

    I used to have 2005 Prius with a Scion 17 wheel. Prius with a rear axle beam does not have a camber adjustment. Only toe. If you have a premature wear on the inside of your tire, you can adjust the toe more IN to reduce inside tire wear.

    You're saying 3rd gen style solid rear axle you can adjust toe? I can't see that. The operative word being solid.

    No worries. I think barring the use of shim, there's squat you can do with the 2nd/3rd gen.

    However, and I missed it completely: OP has a Prime (4th gen with extra electrons), with the independent rear suspension. Not sure what's adjustable, but it certainly doesn't have the restrictions of previous Prius gen's.
