Got new rims/tires

I just sold my car to a guy that is finishing a lease on a 2006 Ranger FX4. He was told by the dealer that if he returns the truck with the BFG All Terrain tires he has on, he'll be charged $300. He needs to return it with regular all season tires.

So I offered to swap my stock rims and tires (wranglers) and he accepted! no cash and he pays for the tire swap!

Tires are like new!

Here's a couple pics:

How exactly do you pay for a tire swap? Just unbolt 1 at a time and switch tires...

Thanks! I'll clean it soon... it's raining today...
They're 31's

I know how to change tires but I'm working all weekend and don't have the time to do it and he wanted to go to a garage and pay to have it done...it cost him $60...
