New wheels with existing tires

For those of you that have put existing tires on new wheels... What should I expect to pay for having the TPMS and stock tires swapped to new wheels? Also, any potential issues I should be aware of when making the swap?

Last question; I shouldn't have any issues putting stock sport package tires on a 18.8.5/18x9.5 set-up, correct?

Pends on the type of wheel youre planning to run. some can just swap over and some you will need tpms adapters.

no issues on your second question.

Most charge about $20-$25 per tire.

Yes, the stock front 225/40R18 will fit on 18X8.5" wheels and the rear 255/35R18 will mount on 18X9.5" wheels with no problem.
