Which Weaver® Wheel Balancer is Right for you? (See chart below)

The W-937 and W-957 share the same software, the main difference being the space requirement.


Note - Some offset and dually wheels will require our truck cone kit, which includes the back cone spacer cup and the large dual sided cone for center holes up to 6 7/8".  The W-937 and W-957 Wheel Balancers with 36 mm. shafts use the W-TKD 36mm Truck Cone Kit, and the W-937-40 / W-957-40 / W-977 / W-987 with 40 mm. shafts use the W-TKD 40mm.

Derek Weaver Company announces the newest addition to our Commercial Grade wheel service line, the Weaver® W-987 Computer Wheel Balancer.  The Weaver® W-987 features a Semi-Automatic Data Entry Gauge for both the Distance and Wheel Diameter.  Simply extend the distance gauge to contact the inside of the mounted wheel assembly and the W-987 automatically enters the Distance and Diameter parameters Only leaving the wheel width to be entered manually.

Key Features Include: 

  • Distance Gauge weight holder grips tape on wheel weights and guides the correct placement on the wheel.
  • Special ALU Smart modes for hidden weight and hidden spoke weight placement 
  • Laser Guided weight placement for pinpoint accuracy
  • LED Illuminator provides clear view inside wheel. 
  • Heavy Duty capacity 40mm shaft allows balancing up to 155-lb. tire/wheel assembly.
  • Self Diagnosing and self calibrating allow easy operator control.  Plug and Play style components make for easy operator replacements without the need for expensive service calls and labor repairs.
  • Large Ultra HD LCD Display provides crisp and clear viewing angle.
  • Foot Pedal Spindle Lock to assist in accurate weight placements. 
  • DSP Digital Signal Processor and Direct Axis Drive System are accurate within hundredths of an ounce.
  • Highly Accurate and Reliable.

The W-987 is a Full Featured design that will withstand the rigors of a volume tire shop at an affordable price.  Components used in the W-987 are state of the art designs typically reserved for more expensive wheel balancers.  Incorporated into the design is an easy to use automatic data entry sequence, Static and Dynamic balancing along with multiple balance smart modes for a variety of hidden weight placements.  It also has a Foot Pedal Spindle Lock for accurate weight placements.  The user calibration is a quick and easy two step process that utilizes fast software updating using a real test weight sequence.   

Check out these Professional grade spec's.  The Weaver® W-987 will handle rims up to 28" in diameter as well as wheel widths up to 20" and tire/wheel assemblies weighing up to 155-lbs.   Bigger light truck tires are no problem with this machine.  The standard cone set (4 cones) have been Custom Tapered to accommodate a range from 1.75" - 6.125" center holes.  Now with FREE Light Truck Cone Kit, $250.00 Value!  Beware! - Some brand X balancers offer 4 old style cones that only go up to 5" center holes in the hope they can sell you a 5th cone set to do trucks for another $270.00 - Buyer Beware!  Our cones do more,...That's Cool!   

Also Beware of some brand X balancers that claim to be "Professional Grade or Commercial Grade" yet only use a 1/4 H.P. motor compared to our True Rated 1/3 H.P. motors.  The Weaver W-937, W-957 and W-987 balancers are true Commercial Grade machines.

    Nice Wheel Balancer

    Posted by Michael A. Chiappone on 23rd Dec 2023

    Very nice balancer. I use this for personal vehicles and have it set up in my garage with the matching Weaver Tire Mounter/Dismounter. Very easy setup. Calibrated with the provided weights as directed for initial start up. Weaver has great step by step videos. Did have 1 problem but was fixed with a quick call to customer service. I was “chasing weight” and it couldn’t zero out any wheel I tried correctly. Turns out the laser also needed calibration. Easy to do with an another video. Overall I’m very satisfied.

    W-987 wheel balancer

    Posted by Joe Rodriguez on 23rd Dec 2022

    This machine works awsome. It’s better then expected. I bought the package with changer and assist arm. This machine works flawlessly. So glad I went with Derek weaver and not some other big names on this one. Everything was in stock and got to me within a week. They were great. They told me it was in stock and it was. Ordered a lift through bend$427 and was told it was in stock until I paid. Then took 4 months to get. Weaver is way to go. Next lift I get will be a weaver. And other then that tire balancer works awsome.

    Weaver w-987 balancer

    Posted by Jerry Strahan on 29th Jun 2022

    My first impression of the machine, WOW! It looks like a brand new Cadillac. It looks great in my shop next to the weaver tire changer we already had. We bought this machine to replace our worn-out hunter machine which was long overdue. I highly recommend this balancer for those not looking to spend over $$$$, it has all the features you would need and the laser is spot on! Simple and quick operation.

    Weaver Balancer

    Posted by Mike Johnston on 27th Jun 2022

    The weaver company salesman was extremely knowledgeable about the wheel balancers and he was more interested in getting the best balancer for me than upselling. He pointed me towards the 987 balancer because I told him I would be doing a majority of alloy wheels. Explained that the laser feature and aluminum smart modes would save a lot of time compared to the other models. After further research, the 987 appeared to be the best balancer at a much lower price than the other sellers. They have very helpful videos and I had the machine up and running within hours after it was delivered. I have balanced at least 10 sets of ties and it has been running like a champ!

    Weaver 987 Wheel Balancer

    Posted by Taylor Sims on 20th Jun 2022

    Weaver just takes care of their customers. We have several of their lifts and have always had great responses for parts and tech help. We took a chance on this new model to replace our hunter (they wanted an arm and 2 legs to fix it). It arrived in 2 days and we had it rollin in about 2 hours. We have balanced about a hundred rims with no issues. My guys love the quick operation for stick ons and the laser hasn't missed. Very happy with this and the price was right.

    w-987 balancer

    Posted by Bruce Allen on 17th Jun 2022

    We are a full service tire shop and have the Weaver tire changers which work great. I wanted to add a balancer to back up our coats machine and gave this one a try knowing Weaver has the support and parts. Setup was easy with the guide and videos, calibration was perfect. I wasn't expecting it to be this fast and easy to operate, very happy with this machine and the cost was a huge savings over coats. Highly recommend it!

    I’m a novice at the tire business and this balancer is very easy to use. Watched the videos at and I feel like a pro. At this time I have balanced 40-60 wheels and tires with no complaints and that has been from trailer wheels to pro touring classic cars wheels.

Derek Weaver Company is proud to offer our high quality products with free shipping or warehouse pickup. Here's how it works...


All Products on our website are offered with "Free Shipping". This means the freight charges are included in the price. Most of our products weighing less than 800-lbs. are offered with “Absolute Free Shipping” which means there are no extra fees. In this case you will notice the phrase “FREE SHIPPING! Includes Free Residential and Free Lift Gate Service!”, in the description of the products page. Absolute Free Shipping also means there are no additional fees for Liftgate Service or Residential Delivery. The only additional fee that you may incur would be if the address were changed during shipment which would incur a reconsignment fee by the freight carrier that we would only pass on if it were not our mistake.

For equipment over 800-lbs (most 2 & 4-Post lifts) there are some limitations for Free Shipping depending on weight and delivery location. In this case you will notice the phrase “Free Shipping To Over 85% of the USA - See Where It's Free” in the description of the products page. Most of the USA will require no additional fee. This applies to over 85% of the continental USA (lower 48 states). Free shipping does not apply to Alaska or Hawaii. Some parts of the country are affected by higher freight rates due to the combination of weight and delivery location which will require a small additional charge to cover the higher rate charged by the freight carriers. Our shopping cart will not calculate the difference (added fee), so we will contact you if this is the case. Rather than advertise the higher rates across the board we choose to show the lowest possible cost to most of the country. Like “Absolute Free Shipping” there will be no extra charge for lift gate or residential delivery. The following areas may have additional freight: North Western US, North Eastern US, Long Island, Western Colorado, the Dakotas, some parts of Florida & California and any area deemed a remote location by the freight company. Prior to ordering give us a call at 817-560-9510 or email and we can provide accurate information regarding Free Shipping or any additional charges.


Shipping and delivery time given during the freight quote process is an estimated time of delivery given by the carrier. Choosing Liftgate Delivery may extend delivery times due to limited liftgate equipment at the delivering terminal. Meeting the delivery schedule is subject to the day the freight is shipped and the carrier’s ability to meet their schedule. Derek Weaver Co., Inc. does not guarantee that a carrier can meet their projected delivery time but we will provide you with the proper tracking information by email so you can follow the tracking time and arrange for special delivery needs with the carrier as needed. Any additional fees incurred as a result of consignee being unable to meet scheduled delivery time or cause for redelivery or reconsignment to a different location will be at consignee’s expense.


Choosing Residential may extend the estimated delivery time due limited liftgate trucks at the delivering terminal, additional communication and handling by the freight company. Please keep this in mind when choosing residential delivery.


Make sure you can unload the freight. A forklift or lifting equipment is required for items over 800-lbs. The trucking company is only responsible for delivery to your loading dock if delivered to a business address or curbside if a residential lift gate delivery. Lift gate service is available for some equipment and can assist in unloading 2 and 4-post lifts however you will still need a forklift. Liftgate capacity is typically 1000-lbs and cannot unload a 2 or 4-post lift on its own.


If you are unable to unload a truck, we have the option of letting you pick the freight up at the closest terminal to your location. When picking up at a terminal, the freight company will load your truck or trailer for you which is included in the freight cost. Call our office (1-817-560-9510) to determine the location of the closest terminal. If you require terminal pickup please place a note in the comment box requesting terminal pickup and we will contact you with the terminal location. Covered trailers or trailers with ramps are not acceptable as they prevent the forklift from getting the load into the trailer. They will not drive onto a ramped trailer. Please remove the ramps prior to picking up if possible.

All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt



Choose this option if you have minor dings and scratches or a part that needs replaced to make the unit satisfactory. Make note of the damage before you sign the freight bill. You will be responsible for filing the freight damage claim with the carrier. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will provide any replacement parts or touch up paint needed should you choose this option and the carrier should provide for reimbursement. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our customer service department @ 1-817-560-9510


Choose this option if the carrier has severely damaged the freight beyond your judgment of a simple repair. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will file all freight claims. Get a copy of the freight bill from the truck driver and email it with a brief explanation of the situation to us. A replacement will be shipped as soon as we verify possession of the freight with the carrier.


If you would like to pick-up the item at one or our warehouses, please call ahead to make sure the item is in stock and schedule your pick-up. Picking up at our warehouse will save you in freight fees but will require sales tax to be collected. If you do not see a pickup price on our website for the product you are interested in you may call our office for more information.

In Texas we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

In North Carolina we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

All Two Post and Four Post Lifts require trailer for pickup. Be prepared for pick-up by understanding the item’s weight and dimensions and using the proper truck and/or trailer for hauling. We cannot load open or enclosed trailers with ramp gates. Our warehouse will load the item onto your vehicle and/or trailer but is not responsible for properly securing the load on your vehicle and you will need to make sure you have the proper straps and equipment for hauling. All items for local pick-up are charged state sales tax at the appropriate local rate.
