Was thinking the same thing as I just ordered wheels to go on my winter tires.

I figured I would need:
- floor jack - $120 from harbor freight (not the stand jack)
- impact drill - on sale at HD now for $200
- torque wrench - $50
- sockets - $30 for a set

So all in, I'm investing a little over $400 including tax.

However my local tire shop will swap a set of wheel and tires for $30 plus tax.
So it's going to take me 6.5 years to recoup my investment.

Sure there's the time of having to bring the wheels and the car and wait around for it, but that would only be about an hour per year.

But I'm still considering it!
