    New rims and tires, then align.

    You could do it now if you wanted, just recheck the alignment after the new rims and tires.

    If you already have the new rims and tires, might as well install all of it and then get an alignment. that will give to for your suspension to settle for the alignment.

    Hoewever, strictly speaking, tire and rim size have nothing to do with the alignment specs.
