    Congrats on you new wheels. But unless you have the tools to separate the wheel from the tire, I think you're gonna be heading to a shop brother.

    Congrats, throw up some photos when you get them installed. They are easy to install but like mentioned, getting the tire off the bead could be a hassle.

    If the tires aren't on the rims you could do this yourself, just don't over torque the sensor nuts on the rims. I can't recall the torque setting for them. But if you have already mounted the tires on the new rims, then the bead will have to be broken to install the sensors. I would hope that the shop may install them for free when mounting the tires.
