Is it always necessary to have wheels checked for proper alignnent by mechanics after changing new tires?

You should have alignment checked every 12,000 or 15,000 miles, or once a year, Also if you see uneven wear, have an accident, or hit curb or large pothole consider it.

I'd do that every 60,000 miles when putting new tires on.
A good tire person can look at the old tires to see if they have any outstanding alignment wear.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

It is NEVER necessary, but it is ALWAYS the proper way to do things.

No. Wheels should be BALANCED after installing new tires, but unless your old tires were showing really unusual wear, it's not necessary to do an alignment.

It is not necessary but is certainly advisable.

No. If the old tires were wearing evenly, no. An honest mechanic will also say no.

Necessary? No. Advisable? Definitely.
If those tires are misaligned those new tires you had put on could very well be chewed up in a matter of weeks. Then you'd not only need to put on and pay for new tires again you'd be struggling to keep your car under control while driving with those misaligned tires.

No, but balancing is.
