moving up from 265/70 r16 to 32x11.5 r15 and just wondered if i need to get realigned afterwards, if so then i'm just going to bite the bullet and buy a rear set of 5100's and maybe a spacer for the driver side to correct lean

if you make no changes to the suspension geometry (lift/lower or disassemble) then an alignment is not required

Alignment isn't necessary. Balancing is a good idea though.
