Unless you have previous experience with Gateway or you have their assurances that they can carefully balance your wheels with a calibrated machine, I would consider having the dealer mount them. Yes...it'll cost more at the dealer but they have the right equipment, precise wheel weights, and will do it right without blemishing the wheels. I've had too many experience where independent tire shops hurry through a tire change, thinking that'll impress you, only to have to rebalance several times or, worse yet, find a scuff on the wheel rim from their "touch less" mounting rig. And, invariably the tire jockey will torque your lugs to some "spec" in their book that is not the BMW wheel spec.
