I am probably not as smart as most of you. However, I like to think what I lack in skill I make up for in will... I would like to be able to balance my own wheels at home. My family has 4 cars plus 1 additional "project car". I also live in the middle of nowhere near an amish community. I would like to dynamicly balance the tire. I can either make a stand, and spin the tire with an electric motor or perhaps build a power roller that would actually spin the tire on the car/truck. I have read of shafts being balanced with two acelerometers and a strobe light. I am a little in the dark of accelerometers, but i assume they would somehow read the high point of the tire while it is spinning. This i assume would trigger a strone light to fire, which would"freeze" the tire and indicate the high point. I guess then a weight would be added to 180 degrees from this location? If a vibration causes a "high" spot on the side of the tire, could this not be done mechanically by using a dial indicator on the tire while it is spinning? Setting up the indicator to ground a strobe light to come on when it read the high spot while the tire is spinning? Again, i am sorry if the question is dumb. I am just trying to understand. I appreciate the help!
