Just got rubicon takeoffs

Hi all, after researching through many threads here I went ahead and bought some stock rubicon wheels & tires off an ad on Craigslist and pretty stoked to swap them in on my new 17 JK Sport.
They were completely deflated to make transport easier, but now that I want to install them, is this something I can do myself (inflate from zero and swap in/out)? Just wondering if there's any watch-outs here. Tried looking up how to inflate a completely deflated tire and not really seeing anything.
I don't have an air compressor yet, but I did take one to the gas station mounted on the spare and aired it up. It made two popping sounds during inflation, but looks to be in place, flush on the rim with 35 psi's now. Safe to keep going ahead with this and jack/replace each tire one by one? I don't know what I don't know. Thanks in advance.

it sounds like the bead was broken so my guess is the psi sensors have been removed. the two pops you heard were the beads seating which is normal and needs to occur if the bead has been broken.

If the bead broke the tire could have moved around the rim so the balance could be off. May want to take it in to have it checked.
