Sea Foam: Before or After new Fuel Filter?

I just got a new fuel filter and I just got some Sea Foam to throw in my oil and gas tank. My question is should I replace the filter before or after I use the Sea Foam? I was thinking it would be best to wait until after so the filter doesn't get filled up with the Sea Foam and gunk while cleaning but I wanted to check with you guys. I know that after about 100 miles you have to get an oil change, that was the main reason I was thinking about holding off til after the Sea Foam has done its magic.

Thanks!

Id look into doing plugs after to.

Sea foam treatment then new filters and spark plugs. Itll feel like a new truck!
