G'day all.
Has anyone had experience with d imitation locker wheels?
I've heard they are tricky to balance and that it can be noticed on the black top?

I don't know how tricky they can be these days. I was at the local tyre place (and I live in a tiny country town, so it's not the latest and greatest gear) and he showed me how the balancing is done. He puts the wheel on the machine and locks it into place, presses a button on the machine. The wheel spins a few times, it then stops the rotation, telling the guy to place so many grams of weight on the inside or outside of the rim at a certain location and the job's done. Tested it - perfect - go to the next wheel. Under a minute, I'm sure if he wasn't explaining shit to me, he could have done two wheels inside a minute, or all four before I could have gotten a coffee from the vending machine.

Proper headlocks are tricky to balance.

Imitation headlocks are just steel wheels with fake bolt heads and are normally balanced with stick on weights.
