Um, no. YOu ae just changing the wheels, not messing with the suspension. No Alignment will be needed at all.

well alteration of suspension, isnt the only reason alignment of toe and camber moves. There are other reason to. In my personal opinion, depending on ur height right now. If you put 16s on there, this will cause ur riding height to do down also. If the car is slammed, u probably need an alignment. Just check this scenario out. I have 18s, changed from 7.5 to 8.5, camber and toe was off, but not much. It depends whether or not you car about the little off alignment. It wont be noticable if,thats what u are asking.
