Tire Balancing Question

I was looking at other options than the MT street comps and the tire shop told me they will only install my tires if I get the four wheel alignment done afterwards.
First of all, do you need an alignment after switching tire and rim sizes? and four wheel alignment? what

That's bull they are only doing that to make up money lost for not selling you the tires and there is no point in a 4 wheel on our cars you can't do one unless you have an irs set up I would try to find somewhere else but that's just me.

I haven't put them on yet, I decided to wait as I didn't want to get an alignment for no reason.

4 wheel alignment on a solid rear axle huh? Did they at least throw in a free blinker fluid check?

That's what I said, and rather then arguing I said I could come back next week and left. Is an alignment at all necessary for changing wheel and tire sizes or were these guys just trying to grab a few extra doll hairs from me?

No it isn't but a front end alignment is a good idea if you haven't had one done in awhile. Especially if you have pricey tires and don't want them to wear unevenly. Any decent wheel/tire shop should charge $20/tire to mount and balance and then probably $50-$75 for an alignment. If you do it as a package you can probably get a deal. I would not go back to that place just for the fact that they tried to sell you a 4 wheel alignment on a solid axle car. They're either morons or shysters or both.
