rear wheel alignment

so i need to tighten up the chain up some, and i need to make sure the rear tire is align properly.
the best diy i found so far is the string thing, but not exectly sure how to do it.
the best i got, is tie one end of string to a jack stand run it around the rear tire, making sure that it is not obstructed and tie the other end to the other jack stand. then adjust both jack stands to where the string touches the font of the back tire, then measure the distance at the fornt tire on both sides and they should be equal, if not then tire adjustment is need. does this sound right? if so where at on the front tire should i measure, the front tire nut, the outer edge of the rim or the shocks?
thanks lild
