Alignment now or after wheels changed?

hi i just got my car lowered like almost 2 weeks ago, im thinking of getting an alignment but im planning on getting a new set of wheels (16" or maybe 15"). Right now, im sittin on stock 14 inch wheels, so my question is, should i get an alignment now? or just wait till i get my new ones? does it affect the alignment if you have different sizes of wheels??.. im in need of help right now..please dont be harsh on me..im posting this question because i dont know the answer...

thank u so much.

Get alignment done now, wheel size may be different, but overall diameter will stay roughly the same.

Wheels and tires make absolutely no difference to the alignment. Might as well do it now to prevent damage to your new rims. Rim clamps from alignment machines will always scratch your rims a little, but usually behind the lip of the rim where you can't see it. I always do my alignments with my winter steel wheels on because of this.
