 ```Ron, tremendously sorry but dynamically balancing on the car is absolutely impossible, unless you change the definition of dynamic balancing. For dynamic balancing it is imperative to very accurately measure the various forces trying to tilt the wheel, and that can only be done when you fit the wheel on a dynamic balancing machine. You have to realize that a dynamic balancing machine measures the sideways forces which tend to bring the wheel in a wobbling motion, not only the vertical force created by the spinning of the wheel. It is the capability to calculate the exact weights and the exact spots on both the inner and the outer rim of the wheel that makes the difference between dynamic and static balancing. A person who claims he can do dynamic balancing while the wheel is still on the car doesn't know what he's saying. I've been in the tire business long enough to know what can be done and what can't be done! If you are looking for the best solution to a problem you first have the wheel with the tire dynamically balanced, then fit it to the car and then do a static second balancing run to eliminated drum unbalance. And if you have the time and the tire merchant is willing, have the wheel + tire matched. That means you do a first dynamic run, mark the wheel and the tire and note the suggested weights, rotate the tire 45 degrees over the wheel, balance again and note the weights again and so on. After 4 readings you can estimate which position requires the smallest weights. Fit those weights, mount the wheel on the car and do the static balancing, and don't show your face their again for the next few years because the guys there will hate your guts....
