On a BMW 535, in a word, yes. You have one of the best handling machines in the world of automobiles, but to keep it that way and for the new tires to wear properly, I would do 4-wheel thrust angel alignment every 12,000 miles.
Sure, most manufacturers suggest an alignment at least once a year. It's definitely a good idea to check the suspension when you get new tires and do an alignment. On your car the Steering Angle has to be reset with an OE diagnostic tool.
