Well I don't know how you'd run the wires if you were to put the insulation in first, so go with wiring then insulation.

Yep, wiring first. The wires need to be stapled or run thru holes in the center of the studs, joists, etc. Inspections(rough) are required before insulation can be installed. Then insulation inspection is needed before drywall.
