lift/new tires alignment question

So I just got my hands on all the components for my lift: 5100's, eibach coil springs, 1.5" aal. I am putting on a set of new duratracs as well (265/70/17). Should I get the tires done first then the lift and alignment, or will getting the new tires after lift/alignment not cause any alignment issues? Thanks

They should have the new tires mounted by the same shop to limit any issues. Make sure they give you the alignment sheet after they are done and also make sure they test drive it.

This seems to be the best way to do it from my research. I wouldn't wanna drive to much on new tires with your truck not aligned properly.

BTW - I just did this 2 weeks ago and we are running the same size tire and brand. Pics in my album if your curious.

sweet, thanks for the info!!
Great looking ride too!
