I wish to change my tires myself as I'll save money in the long run and I don't have any issues with jacking up my car or performing basic maintenance, I just have some quite possibly obvious questions I wish to ask, purely for my own peace of mind.
I currently have a set of winter tyres on the car and will need to change them over with my summer tires fairly soon. To this end, I need to buy wheels to actually have the tyres fitted to. I have found a suitable supplier so that's no issue. The only question is this - once I take the tyres and wheels to a garage to have the wheels fitted to the tyres, am I right in assuming that is the extent to which the tyres will need to be balanced? And, if I were to rotate the tyres, would they need any additional balancing? Or, once the summer tyres are on the new wheels, can I just swap the summer and winter sets to my heart's content without going to a garage for tyres again?
