Besides simply running the tire and chain into each other, a misaligned rear wheel can cause the chain to "snake" horizontally under deceleration or very light loads, coming into contact with the frame or the tire, depending. Naturally, it follows that a chain that has a good amount of wear in the bushings will be even more prone to this, so that's also a consideration.
This is a very accurate, yet cheap, way to get the basic alignment set:
