Not usually. I've mounted quite a few tires, and had a few mishaps, but the rims never became warped or bent out of specification. Usually it takes a torch or a curb check to bend a rim.

The process of mounting and balancing a set of tires is done with the tires off the vehicle but it is generally understood that the tires will be fitted to the vehicle after the work of mounting and balancing is done .

Have your wheelalignment checked. Usually this is done before mounting new tires. since the wear pattern can tell what is wrong with the wheelalignment already.

The last checks to be done before mounting a horse are check the girth and check the length of the stirrups.

If you are clicking then something is going on. You are getting things done, achieving something. It's about making progress. The numbers on the counter are mounting up, each click is one more.....

they are not quality tires. the vulcanizing process is not done properly. tire thread separation is a common occurrence.
