On-wheel balancing

Question : I OWN a Naza Citra year 2006.

Would on-wheel balancing damage my car's gearbox?

Answer : Normally, on-car balancing is not done on driven wheels because there is a danger of damage to the differential bearings and side gears due to the high speeds used for on-car balancing.

If one really has to do so, then both wheels have to be raised off the ground and the wheels driven by the vehicle engine.

Actually, off-car balancers are very good and if there is still wobbling after the balancing, then other mechanical sources should be checked out, such as bearings, brake discs and hub for run out, etc.
