For me and what I do w/my Accord of the same year:1) Never aligned the car yet. But probably will do it whenever I get new tires/wheels2) Probably when I also get new rims/tires.3) Tire rotation for me has been done every 3500-4500 miles. I do this whenever I get an oil change. This has been working very well for me when addressing tire wear, etc.

If I see the tread wear is uneven across the tire, if my tire is cupping or in any way wearing abnormally I'll go in for an alignment.If I feel any vibration or shimmy I'll check out the tires and consider balancing the wheels.Some recommend rotating every 6 thousand miles or so. On a Honda if the front tires have more tread than the back regardless of miles, I'll leave them alone. I want the best tires up front where I need the traction.
