Easiest way to ensure it's straight?
Wipe axel clean, re-apply fresh grease. Just enough to slide it in and keep it from seizing..yeah, TWSS…
Chain tension--bottom of the chain should have a slight "droop" in it. Chain needs to be smiling at you.
Wheel straight---yeah, you can buy tools, make string jigs and all that shit. I use a digital caliper and just measure both sides at the swing-arm. Can it be off---sure, by a fraction of a millimeter, are you gonna notice the difference, no
