I have a Harbor Freight tire changer and do all my own tires but don't have a balancing machine, no need to have one with the beads. These are really common with 4x4 guys, motorcycles and Truckers.
Sorry for the old bump...

xxllmm4 - I assume your WRX tires are low profile? I have 225/40ZR18s on my MB SLK230 and am having a heck of a time getting balanced. Driving the Autobahn daily, I need rock solid balancing. Are you still happy with the results of these?
