Default rota gt3 problems

i recently purchased rota gt3's for my eg; when i tried mounting the tires and balancing them but i cannot get them to balance right. I cant tell where to install the weight on the rim since usually most rims will take one weight on the inside lip and the other would be an adhesive weight on the inside of the rim. the way this rim is designed i cannot put one on the inside..the machine in the shop does not have an option of balancing wheels with only one weight on the inside lip?? how would i balance this wheels so that they won't vibrate?? thanx!!

balance using tapeweights one on the far inside near the spokes and one on the outside near the edge of the rim......any wheel/tire place should know this....

but when they measure the width of the wheel when doing the weights that way, they should measure the width at each are where weights will be applied, like from the back side of spokes to the inner edge of wheel. This was told to us by the Hunter alighment machine techs, we balance our gt3 cup race wheels this way and all street cars as well and have never had a problem
