Wheel Alignment Question

I have BFG TA KO 265/70R17's on my 2010 JK. I had an alignment done in October when I installed my Synergy Leveling kit. I am going to be putting on GYD's 33X12.50 with 15X8 Level 8 Trackers -19 tomorrow. Do I need to do another alignment?

You don't need an alignment for just changing tires

Tires and rims. Still not needed?

Still not needed. Have them mounted, balanced, torque the lugs and roll on.

Thanks. They came mounted and balanced from DTD. I have a torque wrench and look forward to rolling on!

I've heard from 3 people who said alignment isn't needed. Anyone disagree?

No alignment is needed unless you hit some road hazard and have reason to believe something is messed up. Otherwise no need.

unless you have adjustable control arms etc there is not much you can do to a stock or bb lifted wrangler other then set toe in which should not change but if it does is easy to set your self, same as centering the steering wheel. Unless you have added aftermarket parts you can not set caster or camber anywhy.

No problem, anytime. And eh i had a guy offer me 500 but i felt that was just a little too low. But hey just a heads up remember when you take your stock wheels off to pull the rotor retaining clips off as well so the new wheels will sit flush. The stock wheels have recessions in them for the clips where as the aftermarket wheels don't.

Thanks. Don't know exactly what you are talking about but I am sure I can figure it out.

Yes I did. Did it in my garage. Couldn't feel my fingers 1/2 way through doing it. Man it was cold. Thanks again for telling me about the rotor post things. I took them off and they were a bit of a pain. Torqued everything 100 foot pounds and the spare 60 foot pounds. Man, what a huge difference in look and stance. I absolutely love them. Rims are awesome too. It was getting dark and my hands were numb so I will take pictures tomorrow.
