$125, I took my wheel to a shop and they did it for $20. You balance it just like you would any tire, look up dynabeads to see how they work.

I've been using dynabeads in my motorcycle tires for about 6 years now.
Check out their website... http://www.innovativebalancing.com/index.php

Highly recommended! thumbup

Balancing any tire is very simply, and since I always change all my own bike tires it is something that I need to do.  Prop the tire/wheel assembly on two jack stands using the axle.  Spin it so that it makes at least several revolutions, mark the topmost point when it stops.  
Spin it again, if it stops at the same, or very close to the same spot, that is the lightest point of tire.  Tape one or two of those stick on weights you can buy at bike or auto stores at this point and try again.
When you find the correct amount of weights that allow the tire to stop at random points, stick the weights on both sides or middle of rim.

The first time this may take more than 15 minutes, but after that, it's just so easy and actually gives you a balanced tire.

I use Dyna Beads and have for several years, the nice part is they can;t fall off. Wheel is always in balance.
Take care
Be safe
