Alignment E320

After replacing left and right CV boots, do I have to follow it with wheels alignment?

The reason I am asking is that I have noticed after the boots replacement right wheel, outside, wears more then inside, and the same on left wheel, except that is less noticeable.

Thanks for advice-opinion.

I don't know if your CV boot replacement job is to blame, but if your tires are wearing unevenly in the manner you described, that is one of the cardinal signs that you need a front wheel alignment.

It is the sign I need to do wheel alignment, but I did not have issue with it before CV boots replacement.
Just want to do survay about it before I go back to shop where the CV boots were replaced instead of go to MB shop for alignment.

I have read that certain M-Bs are tricky to align properly so just be sure whoever does the job knows what they are doing. Good Luck!
