It will be your front, take it to a professional alignment shop, trust me, you can have some serious problems if you don't take care off your alignment.

no lie.. I've gone through many tires because either a) the alignment was out by crappy places, or B) something is making the alignment go out of whack too easily...

If you get it done, get the 4 wheel alignment.. that will solve both front and back.. and MAKE SURE THEY CENTER THE STEERING WHEEL....

Other than looking at your tread and measuring it, the only well to tell the alignment is off is if the car pulls to one side...

I know my dealers do the alignment for $60.

while on the topic of alignments, my car just hit 30000 and i'm taking it in tomorrow for the 30000 check... it includes tire rotation and stuff... i need an alignment.. do i still have to get it aligned then rotated? or will the rotation fix any alignment problems?

You'll most likely have to get it aligned reguardless. When I got my 30k check-up, I had them align the car as well while they had it there.

get it balanced, rotated, THEN aligned...

if you rotate the tires only, the car could still be out of alignment and thus defeats the purpose...

i got an $80 3 yr from Tire Kingdom.. needless to say after 3 tire changes in under a year because of worn tires, I realized They put it OUT of alignment once... been to the dealer ever since and haven't changed the tires in over a yr...
