    From my understanding the annual service and wheel balancing are the only maintenance needed on the X. I got the 20 stock wheels and I am at 5100 miles. How often to my wheels need to be balanced?

    Are you sure they didn't say tire rotation? Tires should be rotated fairly frequently, although 5k miles might be a bit early.

    Wheels shouldn't ever need to be balanced beyond the first time they are installed. Only reason they might need it again is if the weights they used to balance it came off. If that happened you could probably feel it as a vibration.

    The wheels only need balanced when you change tires or feel vibration (usually at higher/freeway speed).
