1/2 Correct - True there is no difference in handling or tire wear.
1/2 Incorrect - The steering angle sensor for VDC on automatic vehicles will activate or throw a DTC if the angle is more than 10 deg off without a variance in wheel speed left to right - front to rear. I see it when wrecked vehicles are repaired at a body shop and are driven without the zero point reset.

That is correct, however, if I was doing an alignment on a vehicle equipped with a steering angle sensor, I would re-calibrate it automatically....so my previous statement stands.
