Apparently, I have heard that it is possible to use a brake drum with the wheel bolted to the drum, enabling the wheel and drum to be fitted to a modern day tyre balancing machine.
I have never tried it, so if you do, I didnt say it, ok?
If you do though, let us know how you get on?
Surely balancing the drum as well, is an even better scenario than without as the drum will always be joined to wheel when driving!! and everything will be in balance. I didnt bother balancing mine on my buggy and it drives fine.... But i would be interested to know the outcome of this.
