i would buy the lift first. i dont see why you would buy tires and wheels before the lift

Yes, get the lift first, that way you can measure to see what tires will fit. If you do it the other way, you may need to re-work the lift if the tires/wheels already purchased won't fit.

If it were me it wouldent matter which I bought first because I would not run any of it till I had it all together.

I see what you guys are sayin...dunno might wait but I dont know when the funds will come around for the lift so if I buy the wheels and tires now I am not going to wait a year to put anything on cause I really dont think I could see them every day in my garage and not put them on
