Should Jeep be aligned after switching to wider rims/tires?

I have a 14' Overland that I put a set of factory SRT wheels/tires on for the summer, should I have it aligned due to putting on wheels that are way wider than the stock overland ones? I don't know if it's me but it looks like it possibly has some negative camber when the SRT wheels are on but it looks normal when I put the stock ones back on for winter.

Wheels and tires shouldnt have an effect. Must be a trick to the eye with the different width, offset etc.

That's what I was thinking also, but every time I walk out to the jeep I notice it so I wanted to make sure. Thanks
