No, it is not possible without the right tools and can be very dangerous if you dont do it right.

With the right tools its possible, but its a struggle! No way would i ever do wheels on my own unless i absolutely had to! Looking at about eighty for four rims swapped over, and balancing. Depends what theyre like

You mean re-wheelalign. Balance is for vibrations.

If the tread is scrubbed down on the either in inside line or the
outside line of your front tyres, you'll need a wheel alignment once
they are fitted to the new rims. This is worth around $50.

Country NSW price on swapping over 4 tyres with a balance
for each of them is about $30 total.

A good tyre place should do the lot for you in one visit.
