Generally I can tell my cars need an alignment when they don't handle the turns as well. But I can't tell if it's my tires starting to wear down (I drive really hard) or if the car needs an alignment. Any tips? I'm reluctant to spend the ~$100 for an alignment if I don't need one, and I'm also not sure what alignment specifications to use (there is some debate apparently).

Your bumper-to-bumper warranty includes proper alignment for the first 12mo/12K miles. So by all means take it in for alignment before you bust through that coverage.

Make sure the four-wheel alignment is performed on one of the new technology machines which hangs lasers from the wheels to ensure precision.

I'd suggest buying a tread depth gauge and checking tire wear across each tread every couple weeks. Keep a record. Early detection of uneven tire wear gives you time to correct alignment and balancing.
