Will My Wheels and Tires Come Mounted and Balanced?

"When I order a Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package, will it come mounted and balanced?" Yes! As an incentive for purchasing wheels and tires at the same time as a package, we will take care of the mount and balance free of charge. In this way, the package will arrive pre-assembled and ready to bolt on to your vehicle. As is standard with most vehicles, lug hardware will also be included free of charge. The rare exception to this rule would be if your selected wheel re-uses Original Equipment lug hardware.

It's also possible to receive your wheels and tires unmounted if you're swapping over tire pressure monitor sensors. If this is the case, simply do not elect to have the wheels and tires mounted when completing your order and proceeding through the checkout phase.

When purchasing tire pressure monitor sensors with your Tire & Wheel Package or you own a vehicle that does not require them, selecting to have the mount and balance done before shipping makes the most sense as it will help you avoid mount and balance fees locally.

Do tires from tirerack come with rims included? Or do I have to purchase separately?

Tim, When purchasing tires, the wheel is not included unless you purchase a Tire & Wheel Package. For more information, view here: https://www.tirerack.com/content/tirerack/desktop/en/packages.html

Will my wheels and tires still come mounted and balanced if I do not purchase TPMS. I heard the wheels and tires will not come mounted and balanced if you do not purchase TPMS..

Chris, We can mount and balance your wheels without installing new TPMS sensors. However, a qualified installer will need to remove the sensors from the previous wheels and install them on the new. The following parts will need to be replaced by your installer when reusing O.E. sensors:

Rubber grommet seal

Aluminum valve nut

Aluminum or plastic TPMS-compatible valve cap with an internal O-ring seal

Nickel-plated valve core

Various valve washers or rings where required depending on the application
