I have never inquired if they know what to do with wire wheels, but my tire 
place, Apollo Tire in Denville, NJ, seems qualified to handle all my other car 
tire needs.  I usually bring just the tires and rims to them for mounting and 
balancing, but the owners (twin brothers) are experienced enough to know what 
an MGB is, and we've had many amusing chat's about Zenith Stromberg carbs, 
engine fires, the British Leyland mentality, etc...

They are the exception to the rule though, and I recommend them highly.  Next 
time, I will have to ask if they do wire wheels.  They sell motorcycle tires, 
so I suspect they have the know-how to balance wire car wheels too.

common they are, I do not know.
