Something like this will do:



I've one, works straight away for rear wheels, for fronts, 2wd, just put bearings in the wheel, gives the cones something to grab. For 4wd, similar to 2wd, put a hex in the wheel.

Lightbulb Wheel Balancer

Google "Prop Balancer" will come up with several, Tower Hobbies model illustrated are in USA.

Wheel balance isn't quite as critical with 1/10th off road as 12th circuit

Yep,

It's a magnetic prop balancer.

The magnets are strong enough for 1/10
