Cool Xi and Alignments

I've searched the forum and couldn't get a definite answer concerning the Xi model and four wheel alignments. I recently purchased an 06 325Xi for my wife. I'm in the process of replacing all four run-flat tires and want to know if I need to get it aligned just like my E46. Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't think you'd need an alignment if you're just replacing the rubber. Assuming they speed balance the wheels when they're done you should be good to go.

I also have a 2006 325xi and just put on new tires. I had a four-wheel alignment done immediately afterwards because of uncertainties in what existed. Adjustments were called for. Why would one want to possibly compromise a new set of expensive tires for the less than $100 it takes to get it right?
