Question Wheel alignment first or tire rotation?

So my rwd E350 needs an alignment and tire rotation, which one should I do first to get the best results? I'm curious as to what the thought process is...
Thanks

I'd do rotation and balance check first, then align. I'm rotating 5 now too.

I would rotate and then align as well. Might as well have the tire in the space it will inhabit for a while. More accurate if the tires are slightly worn.

I highly recommend road force balancing. The difference is very noticeable, especially on big, heavy tires.
