I'd be prepared to at least pay $90-$120 because that's usually the hourly rate shops charge... But as something as quick as a wheel swap maybe they could cut you a deal or something, I really have no idea. Just a little input.

My vote is to go and buy a $30 jack and tire iron and do it yourself.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I was going to suggest something like that but more so of a low-profile hydraulic jack and torque wrench which would cost more than a wheel swap, but if you own a car and are mechanically savvy at all those tools are definitely good to have and last for years.

$10 at Walmart, they consider it a tire rotation. I've had it done twice.

What did you say to get them to do the swap instead of the normal rotation? and $10 for all 4 tires?

Is there a reason you won't do it yourself? It's fairly simple and you could go to any tire shop and ask them to check the torque when you're done.

This. You should have a jack and iron anyway in case you get a flat. Otherwise you're boned.

But if you HAVE to, take it to Ford or an actual tire shop. I wouldn't trust Wal-Mart to look in my car's general direction. Much less do any work on it.

Don't you have to program the TPMS sensors?

Think the dealership would be willing to do it as part of "The Works" instead of the included tire rotation? It'd be the same amount of work for them, no? I'm just lazy when it comes to anything that involves jacking up the car hehe

Literally it may take you 15 minutes start to finish if you do it at home.

I had my son bring up the new mounted tires and wheels in his truck and asked them to rotate them from the back of the truck to the car. They laughed but agreed that was what a rotation actually is, removing four wheels and reinstalling four wheels. I carefully stood there and watched the entire operation. They were as skilled as anyone that I had ever watched before from removal to reinstalling to torquing the lug nuts.

I went to a local tire chain. 31.00. The cost of a tire rotation.

I have the V6 coupe withe the performance package that has summer only 19" p zeros. I bought a set of base GT take offs 18" with the p zero Nero. Could not take the difference and switched them back, another 31.00.

I had bought 18" takeoffs for my V6 and had to reprogram TPMS. Oddly, when I swapped back to 17's for winter, I did not have to re-reprogramm original wheels/tires.

I have two sets of brembo wheels, one for street, one with slicks, and the car came with 17"s, but I never needed to reprogram my tire pressure sensors.
