Do we need to balance or align take off tires/wheels

Hey folks,
I have a JLU sport s and I am planning on replacing the stock tires on it with JLUR take offs.
Do we need to do any balancing or alignment check after putting in new tires and wheels from rubicon in sport.
The rubicon tires are 285/75/17 and sport tires are 245/75/17. Will there be any issues ? Do I have to get it done by a professional or its just a matter of removing 5 nuts and replacing the wheel ?
I am pretty sure a lot of people will be able to answer my question with ease.

It should be an easy bolt on and go swap, but it may not hurt to have the alignment checked since the Rubicon tires are larger than what comes on the Sport.

I put a set of brand new takeoffs on my new sport and never turned back, no issues at all.
