Default How long can I drive on coilovers before getting an alignment

So my new coilovers just came in and I want to put them on. I can't get an alignment until Saturday because my workdays are too long I commute 100 miles per day and was wondering if I can safely drive on them until Saturday morning before getting an alignment.

Install Thursday, drive to work Friday, align Saturday. Once you lower a car, toe is messed up and will eat tires. But you also need some time to troubleshoot issues and let things seat and settle, which 100 miles will do.
