. Truck goes in for its alignment this Tuesday, then the tires and wheels go on.
Shouldn’t you install wheels and tires before alignment?

I imagine you could but I figured they can align it to spec on the factory wheels. I honestly didn't think it made a difference but if someone knows otherwise please let me know

I’m no expert, but I would align it with the new wheels and tires. Might not matter if they were same size as stock...

I never even gave it much of a thought. Figured I'd avoid any, though probably negligible, abnormal wear on the new ones. I'll ask my alignment guy and see what he says. Thanks for heads up

Got my JTR aligned the other day. Worked out great. Alignments specs were dead on out of the box for the lift kit and the toe was perfect after swapping my tie rod. Installed the tires yesterday.
