This ranges all over the board and what is required. they usually START at 50-100 dollars. A place like Firestone/Bridgestone, Expert Tire, Tires Plus, offer lifetime alignments for about $140; and you can have it aligned every 6,000 for FREE for as long as you own the car! And no, I don't work there.
A tire alignment is not necessary when changing tire sizes. You can tell by the wear on your previous tires if you need an alignment. If you have uneven wear, get an alignment.
The typical fee for disposing of an old tire when you purchase a new tire at a tire shop is $1-$3 per tire. The fee is regulated or determined by the state, county or city in some places and it appears the national average is just over $1 per tire. It also appears that the larger the tire the higher the disposal fee.
If you bought new tires I would suggest you get an alignment also, this way you are ensuring the life of the tire. Plus some tire shops will not warranty the life of the tire if you have a bad alignment

Tire toe alignment means that the tire has to be aligned with the "toe" of the car which is the shell that covers the car. This allows the tires to be easily adjusted if needed.
a rotation is where they switch your tires from front to back a tire balance is where they make sure the tire is the same weight all the way around alignment is where they make sure your steering is straight
I would take it to your local tire store. Most of those places can check it for you. It's not really something that an average person should try to attempt on their own.
There are all sorts of things that can cause a car to shake. Needing an alignment is just one. There could be a tire out of balance, a bad spot in a tire, even a tire that is low on air pressure. Check all of these before you spend the money on an alignment.
Front end is out of alignment. Take it to a trusted alignment shop and have an alignment performed.
yes. but the biggest preventatives are proper tire pressure and alignment angles (toe, camber)

Worn suspension/steering parts Incorrect tire pressure Alignment
Camber and toe can both cause inner tire wear.
Balancing ... although it has no real effect on the alignment, the act of removing the wheels and re-installing them improperly could result in disrupting the alignment.
take it to a shop that has an alignment machine, it should cost around $55-$60
Alignment.... get it fixed. or make sure you dont have a low tire.. probably alignment though
tire balancing is when the tire is spin balanced so it wont vibrate when you drive down the road.tire alignment isn't really aligning the tire as much as it is correcting the components of the front end so that the tires are straight up+down and side to side.when this is off it will cause premature wear of the tires.
Bad wheel alignment? Incorrect tire pressure?
Typically, either alignment or low tire pressure. Check the tire pressure, if it still pulls you'll need to take the vehicle to a front-end specialist for an alignment.
