I just purchased 4 new Michelin tires, is it necessary to have the front end aligned.

How were the old tires? Did they wear uneven or wear out prematurely?

They were fine, my original set on my 2000 Lincoln was replaced in 2007, since then I replaced with Coopers (suggested by the dealer), and had problems with the whitewalls. I have gone back to Michelins. Tires were balanced.

Tires can be examined by an experienced mechanic, and they can tell if there is an alignment problem. If they wore evenly and lasted a long time, you don't need an alignment. Keep an eye on them and after 5,000 miles, have a mechanic take a good look at the tread and see how they're wearing, if they are showing signs of being out of alignment, have it aligned.
