Stock wheel/tire swap question

Hey all! Just got my first jeep over the weekend. It has some cheap aftermarket rims and very cheap 215 series tires. I found on Craigslist some used stock 5 spoke rims with 30 x 9.5 tires. Question is, can i Just slap these on and go or do I need them mounted and balanced professionally?

As long as the wheels are the 5x4.5 bolt pattern, u shud b fine. Unless the ones u found have some weird back spacing which I doubt.
So slap em on and save the money. If once you're driving around u get some weird wobbling or shaking then go have them balanced.
If they are cheap tires, they'll come out of balance easy.
