    I have 2 sets, and whenever I get bored I like to change the look of my truck. This occurs every few months or so.

    Never a bad thing to swap them out. Plus it gives u a chance to check brakes, shocks, Cv joints and other things that get neglected

    It will ruin your bank account. No damage to anything else as long as they lube up your beads correctly before re-installing.
