I bought the tires from DT/AT with lifetime balance/rotation. The tires have only 10k miles and was rotate/balance twice. I don't know if they require alignment, if all 4 tires wear evenly all around why I need to do alignment ? When the tires wear down to 2/32" I will find out from DT/AT if 100k miles tread life warranty really worth anything. I paid about $200 out the door for 4 installed H727 185/65-14, after DT/AT and Hankook rebates. If no prorate is allowed because of no alignment every 15k miles, then it's okay with me. I'm not going to do alignment every year and a half just to get the prorate warranty.

May be because that car is driven mostly on city streets with a lots of stop and go, acceleration on green light and braking on red light take a toll on the tires. I just keep rotating every 5-6k miles and if it wear down to 2/32" at less than 30k miles of service then I will get back a good percentage of pro-rate $. I think the tire is warrantied for 100k miles.
