Here is what a friend posted. If you have never replaced a tire this is a good basic set of instructions.

Hmmm, timely, I was going to take mine in. Maybe I'll try this first. Any hints about balancing a new tire?

Just ensure the tyre is in the correct rotation, there is an arrow on the side showing this.
The circular impression on the side should line up closest to the valvue.
I don't balance my tyres I only check them in the bike minus the calipers.
Mind you I do not ride at speeds much over 70/80 mph.
If you are a high speed man then get them balanced.
There is a kit to do this that I used with my car.It can be adapted to be used on a bike wheel if you have a lathe.
Finally, take a look on You-Tube there are a lot of methods there.
Suck it and see as Granny said.
