Wheel balancers?

Centramatic is advertised at the top of this page. They sound interesting. Called em, $200 for a set, anyone tried them????? They might be worth the price for a better ride and longer tire life. They may not have enough weight to balance a large tire without it being partially balanced. May take away the vibes of large tires. They would balance on the vehicle so would balance all, not just the tire and rim. They would balance for stuff your tires picked-up on the trail.
Balancing on my mind since Discount just replaced two of my new MTR's (out of round, out of balance, and each needed over 16oz of weight to get them close to balanced). Discounts deciding factor was the fact that both tires did not run round without a wobble to the side. Techs should have caught that when they mounted them. I bought 6 of them months ago and was just now rotating the two new ones in. I thought I had seen that anything over 16 oz. on a new tire was defective???
