Oh trust me. Before they put the new tires on last week it felt like I was going to die. I was afraid to drive on the freeway, and I had to take a friend to a doctor's appointment. 80 miles round-trip. I was terrified. 

I'm probably not going to be able to get it fixed before Thursday... and I have a doctor's appointment myself that is 110 miles round-trip... Gonna be interesting.

Is the work being done by a Ford shop?  I went to a tire shop that specifically told me that they could not get the rear tires within spec during the alignment and that I should take it to the dealer.

Yep, getting the work done at the Ford dealer. They even had problems previously getting the alignment in spec, even with the bad rim. It seems to be the trend with the C-Max. They ended up having to use a torch to get the parts to move around enough!

My mechanic retired last year before I traded in my Focus, and I haven't been able to find a new shop that I like.

Yikes!  A torch?  No wonder they had problems aligning the wheels with a bad rim (the alignment equipment bolts to the rim).  Make sure they redo the alignment after they put on a good rim!

Oh absolutely. They're doing alignment and balancing with this new rim. I want them to throw in a free detail or something since this has been in a pain in my rear-end for six months!
