San Diego tire mount and balance shop?

Looking for a place to at the least balance my wheels. Any autoshop can mount the tires but their balancing machine won't work with motorcycle wheels.

Anyone in San Diego balance for a reasonable fee? Wheels will be off the bike.

Buy a pit posse wheel truing stand and you can balance it yourself. All you need is something the wheel can spin freely on and a level surface.

Give the wheel a good spin to ensure it is spinning freely. Stop it, then give it a gentle spin and let it come to a complete stop on its own. The bottom of the assembly (wheel w/ mounted tire) is the heavy spot. Use some masking tape to hold a wheel weight at the very top of the wheel, opposite the heavy side. Give it another gentle spin and see if it stops in the same place. If it stops in the same place add a little more weight. Once the wheel no longer stops in the same place and will rest no matter what position you leave it in you have successfully balanced the assembly. Now you can hard mount your weights either tape or clip on weight.

I bought the truing stand when I was lacing some wheels for my dirt bikes and then was able to use it to balance my street bike tires. A static balance isn't something you need a computerized balancer for. Gravity will take care of it for you!

Hope that helps!
