Yes, I (try) to re-align all the close mics almost always, sometimes it works and sometimes not, and (now) re-align them by ear and not visually.
As far as the room mics, I won't delay the close mics so much as to diminish the groove with the rest of the instruments just to have them lined up with the room mics. I'd rather delay the room mics even further to catch the next in-phase cycle.
This is my current procedure, "subject to change without notice"..lolz..
