Installing a new toilet flange - before or after tiling

I have a 4" stub for the new toilet. Should I wait to cut it off until after I put the tile down?

Are you tiling ontop of the concrete slab?

1) Dry-fit flange and install tile
2) Grout
3) Install flange, anchor to concrete
4) Profit
5) Install toilet.

I prefer to set the flange to the concrete and tile around it---Here's why--

No need to drill through the porcelain tile--no possibility that the flange will be to high and hit the bottom of the toilet ---

I do bathrooms---flush to the tile has never been a problem--but on top of the tile has been on many occasions.

You must decide---most books will tell you to place the flange on top of the finished floor--
I speak only from personal experience--Mike---

Here we go again; the on-top or level debate. Last time the winner was level if I remember correctly.

I vote for on top.
And in your case it looks like you'll need an inside flange
