Can this be done??

Or I am I asking for trouble?

(wheel balancing with the tyres fitted and spinning on the car using stobe machine)

TIA.

I don't know - but I would have thought that (unless you have LSD) you can spin one wheel as much as you like as long as the other one is on the ground - i.e. the transmission should not turn at all?

If you spin one rear wheel with the other one on the ground, the prop-shaft will turn rotating the transmission with it.
If you raise both wheels of the ground and lock the transmission, and then rotate one rear wheel ... Then the opposite wheel will rotate in the opposite direction.

thanks for the replies.

probably just the good old balancing will do for now!
