Look at how you can balance your tires yourself



This mechanic uses a do it yourself tire balancing tool and shows you how easy it really is. I wouldn't do this since I would have to pay to have the tire installed onto the rim, but this video is quite interesting to see how you can balance it if you want.

Probably good enough for a smaller diameter tire by the looks of the video.

A dynamic balance is the same as a static balance only when the wheel has no thickness.

Right. This would be more effective on a bicycle wheel/tire.

I can tell you how easy it really is,dynamic and static balancing. But then I would also tell you I would just use a real balancer to do it which is in my garage

But technically he did balance the tire. You can clearly see the bubble is in the center of the gauge. I think this is how they balanced tires in the old days before they had tire balancing machines.

He balanced it to sit horizontally on pin, not to rotated in a vertical plane on your car's wheel hub. The wheel could still wobble/vibrate after balancing like this.

He did static balance
Here's a link to the producthere

Notice it says static balance. A dynamic imbalance which is statically balanced would be equal weights at opposite ends of a wheel for example. Statically both sides even out but there is still a heavy part and a lighter part to the wheel.....

This could be good for a trailer tire I guess but it's not the proper way of balancing anymore. Way back when sure but now we have technology​ to make it better.
