Good idea to do at the same time

Do new tires require a wheel alignment?

Not necessarily. If the car was in alignment prior to getting the new tires, it will be in alignment after the new tires. It isn't a bad idea to check the alignment periodically and it is probably better to check it more frequently than when you get new tires.
