I balanced my rims myself last time on my balancing machine.
The reason is, that I can’t find a company in the neighborhood where that is still done.
Almost all tire companies now only work with rims that have a standard central hole in them for tensioning the rim.

For the DS I have to do this again and that is scheduled for the 2022 refurbishment.
