Default Special wheel balancing machine

I saw a motoring program the other day that showed a 'new' wheel balancing machine. It checks if your tire is out of round and gives the operator feedback. They can then move where the tire is located on the wheel so that the rolling radius is as close to round as you can get.

Anyone know if these machines are in Vancouver?
Anyone know where?

I would like to get my existing tires checked for this. I think one of them is out of round.

"...out of round."? They're not square are they?!?! :P You should get a nice set of tires (RL-7 15") if you are going to rally

No, I do not know of any local shops with a special wbm...
