So I purchased some new tires through Sears today, getting them put on next week. If all the current tires wore evenly, do I need an alignment when getting new tires?

Probably not if the old tires had even wear


How many miles on your vehicle since the last alignment?

Nope, leave it alone.

Only had it a year, haven't done one. It has 51k miles on it, the tires are original

If your streets there are as full of potholes as most streets, it doesn't take hitting too damned many to start to skew your alignment. It's worth checking.

It's pretty easy to set your alignment at home.

If it is a Chrysler product or a Chevy/GMC truck you need an alignment otherwise no.

Don't touch it unless you notice a real problem.

Just give the tire guy $70 and tell him have my car ready in 10 minutes. He won't have tiime to do anything but take your money, but you'll feel better.

Leave it alone if it was working fine.
