the alignment will only be slightly more difficult if your tires are to wide for your wheels or have really deep wheel protectors on them. This will make it difficult to put the sensors on the wheels, but once they are on the alignment is very easy. The dealer shouldn't have any problems aligning your car. If you just got new wheels and tires it won't throw your alignment off, just to let you know. If your alignment was good before it will still be good.

Congrats on the wheels. Don't let them ripp you off on the allignment. When I got my 18's last month I took my car to Midas to get it alligned and they explained to me that the rear allignment was perfect and didn't charge me for the rear only the front since it was out of spec a little. I hate the acura dealer sometimes, ask them about this. I only go charged 25 bucks for the front instead of 50 bucks all around.

man my car is lowered like 2-2.5 with 18in rims and it took me like 4 hours to find a place that could fit my car on there rack. Then i was charged a $15 lowered car fee i was pissed
The shop me and my buddies go to has extended ramps they use so we can get our lowered cars up on the lifts, dont know about anywhere else but Ive never heard of anyone charging a "lowered car fee" thats ridiculous

Thanks for all the quick responses! I need the alignment. Before I got the new rims it was fine, but now my car pulls to the right. The old tires were probably worn so much at the wrong alignment that they just wore unevenly and it just felt like the aligenment was ok-it that possible? Well I think it is almost time to call Acura: alignment, new floor mats, more touch-up paint, and while I'm there why not an oil change-I'm almost due. :)

I would suspect your new tires rather than the old ones. If you get an alignment and it still pulls have them swap the two front tires and see what happens. If the pull is gone or it now pulls to the left you know you have a bad tire. Just something to think about.
