    Would getting wider tires require a new alignment?

    I am about to have a shop install 1.5" lowering springs, shocks, and a adjustable panhard bar. And after the shop installed all that, I was going to take it straight to an alignment shop. My question is, I have 245/50/16 tires on the car right now, and I was planning to buy 255/50/16 this summer. Should I get those tires on before I do all my suspension modifications and alignments, or does it not matter?

    wheels/tires won't change the alignment... your suspension work will, though.
