Question Uneven tire wear question.

From what I've read I'm under the impression that doing donuts can take the wheels out of alignment. Specifically, what tires can it affect? Say someone did donuts in a counter-clockwise direction in dirt and 10,000 miles later they notice their driver-side tire has uneven wear on the outside. Is this a result of the donuts?

I can't remember the source exactly but I know on some WRX forum, probably either NASIOC or ClubWRX I read that doing donuts can hurt your alignment.

doing donuts will not affect your alignment unless you hit something in the process
