I am going form the stock 15' to 17' they come mounted and balanced, and ready to put on, so will i need to have ther alligned somewhere? My if are perfectly alligned and dont pull at all, so will that just keep on working on my 17's?

Thnaks for the Help! :bow:

It is always a good idea to get an alignment with new tires. You will get more even wear out of the new tires and possibly better gas milage. As your suspension ages and also takes an ocassional hit it will get a little out of align. Just because it doesn't pull won't always mean its 100% correct.

Ask for a before and after print out if you do get it done. You might be surprised with the measurements.

P.S. Always get a four wheel align. Thats my $.02

Hey bro. I just bought some 18's from www.discounttiredirect.com and they were mounted and balanced and I have had no troubles with them. I brought them to my local tire shop and they said they were good to go! They are a great ride.

Not needed if it is already good. But it can be off and not be too noticeable. I get
mine done often since I have changed the suspension so many times. I got a lifetime
aligment from Firestone.
