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.

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
