Every year, I get a professional to replace my winter tires (which already have its own rims) with my all-season tires (and vice versa in the fall). Can I save some money by reinstalling the tires myself at home, then driving it over to a pro to get anything else done, such as aligning or balancing or torquing?

    Typically if you have somewhere to change the tires and have the jacks to do it, all it will cost you is time. The tires should be already be aligned or balanced if they were on last year. If you install them and the car pulls to one side or the other then you have a balance issue.

    If you know what you are doing, had expired in autoshop, and know how to change tired properly. Then, you will save money, but if you make a mistake, it could cost you more then you save. I recommend for you to just let the professionals take care of it, that way if something goes wrong, you could blame them and sue them as well.

    Remember, your safety and others always comes first.

    rite so i get this clear what i think u r telling me is that you change the tires on your car in the winter the tires all ready have rims so all u are doing is changeing rim for rim as far as i can tell balanceing would of all ready have been done the way i tell is if the stering wheel becomes vibrate at high speeds torking your wheels when on the car sould be done on a weekley check if u do it at all rember when fiting your tire spin the wheel so the studs are in a diamons shape when titen them up top to bottom left to right make sure u do it this way to make sure your tire is onn correct then take the jack out from under the car and do the same again stand on the wrench if u feel u need to as i do
    alignment may need to be done if the tyres are wereing on one side faster than the other

    if u need any more help i will do my best e~mail [email protected]

    dcolin is dead on, if you can wade through his massive run-on sentence.

    You can change them yourself. Balance and alignment should not be an issue, taking tires off the car should not affect either. Make sure you tighten the lug nuts in a star pattern. You should torque the lug nuts. Just buy a cheap torque wrench and go for it.
