wheel alingment

I'm getting new tires for my 2007 95 and wondering if I should also include
front and rear wheel alingment. Having bought this car with 95000 miles I don't know if it was ever done. Thoughts ???

I think the rear is a camber alignment so I do not think that they would take a look at that or at least they will mot charge you for doing it. The procedure for the job is located in WIS

Alignment is not usually necessary when installing new tires, but after 95k miles it is a good idea.

Do not pay for 4 wheel alighnment for the rear has NO adjustment, although it could tell you how far off it is

In my experience, you wouldn't even have to worry about wheel alignments if you choose a good rim and tire combination. I happen to purchase these wheel and tire packages and so far, I have no complaints (and so does my car).

Your front suspension has struts and have no adjustment for camber and caster, only toe. The rear axle has no adjustment. You should have the toe checked because it could be out of adjustment due to an accident, pot holes, etc and toe affects the steering (does the vehicle wander?), handling and tire wear of the vehicle.

Rear comber is adjusted using shims behind the hubs

or adding an adjustable cross-stay

The 9-5 has negative rear camber but if it beyond spec you will get inside edge wear and could lead to cupping and can be adjusted as above

There is camber adjustment up front. Camber bolt holes are slotted. You can use camber adjustment bolts. If it is far out, you can grind the slots out more.
