The photo & copy by the OP are top shelf.
I too have enjoyed doing my own tire changes & cleaning of the inside of the rim that you can bet a dealer will not take the time to do.
What I have found to do a balance job that is on going for the life of the changing tread is Ride-On. Your tire will not maintain its balance for thousands of miles as it was originally balanced. Check out the Ride-On product. [ride-on.com] It does cost more than the beads but it will also seal your tire against blow outs. Have used this product for years & never been disappointed. It will not stop a side wall blow out but nothing else will either.
