Carpeting Stair Treads Only

I have a new staircase and plan on having only the stair treads carpeted, with the risers being wood. I have the ability to attach the treads from the bottom, after the carpet is installed, so my question is would carpet installers prefer to wrap the treads before they’re installed, or am I making it more complicated than it needs to be? I was thinking it’d be easier for them, and maybe cost a little less for me. Again, we only want the treads carpeted, and don’t like the look of a center runner going up the stairs.
