Since last year, I have small vibration in my steering wheel at about 110-120 KMH. These vibrations would be gone at higher or lower speeds. I went to balance the summer wheels (17-inch) a few times in MB and nothing helped.

I did not feel these vibrations after I changed into my winter tires/wheels (16-inch).

Someone told me that I should find a tire shop who has the Hunter blancing machine. I did and they asked me if I wanted a road force balancing?

I have no idea what is a road force balancing is. Can someone help?

Road force balancing measures the stiffness of the tire around the entire circumference of the tire, and tells the tech where to mount that tire in relationship to the high and low spots on the wheel in order to counteract these variations. It's kinda complicating to try to explain, but from the problem your describing, it should probably be worth it.
