It seems kind of silly, the idea of “balancing” a wheel. Aren’t wheels already balanced? Do they even need to be balanced since they’re mounted to the car? Think about it this way: even the slightest difference in weight around the wheel is traveling very fast around the axles hundreds of times a minute, which can create enough momentum to cause serious vibrations and other problems. Unbalanced tires can also strain the wheel bearings and suspension systems, and even cause the tires to wear prematurely. In other words, improperly balanced wheels can cost you a lot of money in the long run.
