Default Curbed rear wheel; need alignment?

Hi all. The other day I curbed my right rear wheel slightly (there's a shallow 2-inch-wide chunk of metal scraped from the rim) and want to know, do I need to get my alignment checked? What symptoms should I be looking for that would tell me that I need or don't need an alignment?

Thanks!

The only std, adjustable parameter on the rear is toe. So, if the car is acting more twitchy in straight line driving, the toe has been altered.

If you really wacked the curb it is probably worth the price of an alignment to regain your piece of mind. Who wants to drive constantly thinking," now does THIS mean the wheel is out of alignment. No. What about THIS..."

Good luck.
