Island - yes I did fit them myself, and I won't lie, they are hard work to fit.
Not tricky or complicated as such, as the instructions are very clear - it's just that it takes brute force to a) get the tyre onto the rim, and then b) pop each of the clips into the rim (and there's about 25-30 of the little buggers from memory).
However, I did find that fitting the second tyre was quicker than the first, once I'd got the knack of it. Reckon it took about an hour for both, and it saved me a trip to the gym that day too, so it was time-neutral really.
My second pair have just arrived this week actually, and i'll be fitting them on my TT this weekend, so will have to see if I can get a new 'Tannus-fitting PB'!
Oh, and no, the wheels didn't need truing afterwards, although it mightn't be a bad idea to check them after fitting, as you'll need to put quite a lot of pressure through them during the fitting process.
Hope that helps!
