in theory possible.... but.... you will not be able to balance it... see how much you would save taking loose wheels for tyres. Also see if you can buy the tyres cheap online and get them fitted.

Personally i wouldn't do it, I've done it on car tyres, but the saving for a few quid isn't worth the agro in my opinion

also you would need a bead breaker and levers to start with... consider the risk of damaging the wheel....

Well that the problem,when i was looking online for tyres you could save yourself a tenner but getting them fitted would have cost me twenty quid.So unless you know a mate who can fitt them for nothing its not worth the hassle buying online.
