Wheel alignment question. advice asap pls

Hey guys,

I need an alignment for my car. 335xi on 18s. I am planning on upgrading to new 19 inch wheels and tires in the next few months possibly.

The alignment is really off and I've book an appointment. As far as I know once its aligned changing tires and wheels will not make a difference?

Not sure if I should wait to get the alignment until after the new wheels and tires are installed?

let me know what you recommend. just thought of this today and I have an appointment booked for alignment tomorrow!

get your alignment done sooner rather than later. changing wheels and tires does not affect your alignment. however, if your current tires are causing a pull, your steering wheel MAY be off-centre after you change your wheels.

Get the tires and alignment done the same day. New tires on, get alignment.

Be sure to align it with the new tires on though, it can make a difference if your tires are causing any of the concern.

Alignment and tires should be done at the same time, especially if you are upgrading to a different rim size/tire size.
