Scared to try it, don't want to mess anything up. Do you think it would still look good if I just tint the glass?

I read somewhere that installation is either free with the purchase of the tires or very cheap. I've also read several accounts of horrible service there but some people say it was great, so I'll take my chances. My question is, will Walmart install the new wheels? Or do they only install tires onto wheels that are already on the truck? If they won't install them, should I just get the tires then take everything back to Discount Tire? Please help! Thanks!!

PS-
I attached a picture of one of the rims. Tell me what you think!


UPDATE:
Had DT install everything. They did a great job! She rides smoothly and they even took my front mud flaps off for me.
I love your new wheels/tires! Can you tell me what wheel width and bolt pattern I need for mine? Its a stock 15 prerunner with the stock tires.

I know this is true for costco, not just tires. even non kirkdog brand items sold at costco are lesser quality.
my wife once bought a designer brand jeans saying it costs less, only to find out later it has one less pocket.
I bought a set of tires from costco for my van at the same time I bought a set for my car from firestone. The costco one (michelin) shows significant wear already for less miles than the car.

I've had my tires for a few months now and they're holding up REALLY well. They are Goodyears and I don't think where they are purchased matters a whole lot, at least for these particular tires!
