In my youth I have changed a lot of tires on cars. Changing tires on a large class A is crazy. You don't save enough money compared to the injury that may await.

Went in to Loves truck stop in Williams, AZ today to get my dash AC recharged. During the course of conversation, the manager made me a deal on 6 new Michelin XZA3+ installed with balancing beads to replace my 2008 vintage tires.
Took them about 2.5 hours and the charge per tire to install was $35.
To answer the OP's question, there is no way I would even consider doing this myself for 35 bucks.
If your in the area and looking for tires, these folks have a good inventory and very good folks to deal with.
P/S, these tires are date code week 13/2015 and in stock if you're looking.

Yes, it can. But if you're doing it correctly, you have it in a cage or some other type of containment. At my shop, I do them between my dumpster and a concrete block wall. In the field, I've done them under a flat-bed trailer, inside a culvert pipe, or as a last resort, in a field with a 50' hose.
