Do they also sell a wheel balancer? I'm interested in these as well since I'm changing my tires once every 1.5~2 months.

Yeah, but keep in mind that in order for it to be effective that changer is going to have to be bolted down. Don't forget that you'll need some way to balance them.

I'll be able to get a sheet of plywood to bolt it to, then weight it with whatever is heavy :D

I can use a 'generic' gravity method with 2 chairs to ballance it, or just take the mounted tire/wheel to a shop for a high speed ballance.

I'm going to get some tire arns and learn how to do it the hard way. That way if I ever have an emergency on the side of the road that requires the removal or separation of the tire from the wheel for repair or replacement I'll have an idea of what I'm doing. :)

I'll prolly have a good idea how to do it on the side of the road after doing the new tires with the 'real' thing. Or I'll remove the wheel, get a ride home, R&R the tire, then get a ride back and mount the wheel :D
