Default Do you need alignment if only change wheel and tires ?

i just change from 18 stock to 19 after market wheel and the high gap between fender and tire rear look so stupid

but i am thinking about leaving it like that for a while until i save enough to buy a whole set of coil-overs instead of just spring and camber arm

the question is that do i need alignment ? everything stock except 10mm spacer with stud replacement on the rear

Wheels, tires, and spacers will not affect you your alignment. Unless there was a problem before hand there is no reason to get an alignment.

You can always go to your Nissan dealer and ask them to check if you need alignment. They will give you a print out free of charge after.
I paid them $90 + tax few days ago to get the alignment done.

$600 will only buy you garbage coilovers. You'll need twice that.

FWIW Swift springs will handle better than $600 coilovers.

Hell, stock springs and shocks will handle better than $600 coilovers.

would be cheaper, faster, and more comfortable to take the bus

than to buy $600 coilovers

hell just keep your stock stuff, cut your springs, and give me the $600

it will make you happy since you have a lower car
and me happy since i have $600

i see no downside
