I know Blackstock does, as they have special machine for it
I know they are not in GTA, but they are always an option
Don't know who else

Try finding a tire shop that does transports and heavy mechanics, that's how we get ours done in Elliot even our Ford dealer sends them over there they have a huge system


I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!

you can buy balancing bags for about 20$ a bag, you stick them inside the tire and they balance the tires when you drive, used mostly on semi's but have seen them on truck tires people have troubles balancing

Found a place that does semi tires not to far from my place so I am going to swing by this week.
How much did they charge to do yours?

It was like 60$ we had to sand and contact cement the weights to my rims because of my off-roading habit's lol, the city weights Blackstock put on lasted about one week (I call the M3 Tape ones city weights)

I think it's is kinda expensive but they are the only ones in town with the big balancer

Thumbs up

I had my tires balanced with a new type of balancing call roadforce It puts load on the tire like when it is on your truck Much better then just spin balance about $ 10 per tire in peterborough
