Very, if you ride over 35 MPH. You can buy a wheel balancer for about 129 bucks.
Be advised, you need a automotive balancer to balance BMW rear wheels with the large diameter hole.
Most static balancers are axle type and rely on small cones to align the wheel.

Here's some info and a video.

I have the No-Mar wheel/tire changer. I bought just the base and blocks and built my own stand. It was a cheap solution, but I doubt he
will sell only the base now. This was when he first started his business. You might ask if they would.

Looks like No-Mar offers a static balancer with the adapter cones for the larger center hole on the GS/GSA & RT style wheels.
