Door install, use house wrap or just water proof strips

I am moving an exterrior door a few inches. There is no current house warp so when I install the new door do I just put in the weather proofing membrane around the door or should I try and put a few inches of wrap around the door to tie the adhesive strip into?

any time i install a entry door i always bend up a metal drip pan for the sil then run vycor or blueskin up the sides and across the top, then run two beads along the sil and one up the sides on the outside

Thank you very much. I found a video on this site that shows Silva installing a window which was helpful.
