I've never installed new wheels onto my car, only new tires on OEM wheels...

If i were to buy new or used wheels/tires what is involved for installtion?"

alignment/wheel balancing?

Im assuming you can't take a used set of wheels w. tires and just install them on your ride...

Usually if you buy new wheels/tires together (mounted) then they come balanced already.

If you buy them used... you take someone's word for it that they are balanced then they might be... but its always good to make sure before putting them on that they're balanced.

you don't need an alignment for just new wheels. i'd say just slap them on, and see how they drive. if they vibrate, then go get them rebalanced. or if you prefer, just get all of them balanced before you put them on.
