I might go check-out the local tire shops first, before ordering the tires, to see if they'd at least have space in their parking lot, or nearby.
Our storage space is about 20 miles from nearest tire place, so going back and forth one at a time is not enticing. (even from home, which is a little closer, doesn't sound fun).
However, I'm very doubtful that I'll find somewhere that can safely lift the fiver, since most places are setup to lift cars/trucks and not trailers that also need support off the axles (ie: at the hitch/king-pin).
If I can find somewhere that has space for me to use a my Trailer-Aide ramp in their parking lot then I'll probably just order the tires online, and then switch out one tire at a time in the tire-shop parking lot, but with no travel time between them
