Wheel Alignment after tyre change?

Hi,
I am getting my rfts changed to tubeless tyres(michelin ps3) this weekend, i am only getting the tyres changed & not the wheels. Do i need a Wheel Alignment as well?

Thanks.

Look at your old tyres and see if there is uneven wear that could indicate toe or camber out of alignment. I would get it done anyway, you spend all that money on tyres another 100 or so would ensure that your new tyres last longer.

That being said... also depends on who you bring it to. I made a huge mistake of bringing it to Beaurepaires once and they did such a botched job of it.

BMW did it for free when I brought my car in for service and fixed up all the issues that Beaurepaires caused.

Not necessarily a BMW dealer - Just need professional people and experienced technicians and will look after their customers properly.
