Switching from RFT to non RFT PSS

I just got a few questions:

1. Is the wheel alignment necessary? Car has 11k miles on it.
2. Do I have to get them road force balanced?

Thanks in advance.

Changing tires? No alignment needed.

The Road Force balancing is supposedly the best form of balancing wheels since it mimics the wheel/tire combo spinning on the road with a load on it, but to answer your question, you don't HAVE to.

Just got a quote for 4 tires, mount with road force balance and tax for $1,085. Minus $70 rebate. I think it's a pretty good deal.

1. Nope
2. Nope - But its the only type of balancing I'd ever recommend.
