The special balancer is sometimes known as an "on-wheel" balancing where the front tyres are jacked up one at a time, and a rotating machine is placed on the elevated tyre to simulate the actual driving speed on that particular tyre. Adjustment weights are then fixed to the wheel - and quite a matter of subjective judgment on the part of the person doing it. So, it might be worth the while to go to a reputable shop for this on-wheel balancing or you might just get ripped off (its more costly too).
