I don't know how to do that, but I don't think they are out of balance that much, I'd feel some kind of vibration if it were the case
Sweet. If there is a build thread I'd be interested to read it.
It sounds, like I assumed, that you have thought about almsot everything. Kind of glad I couldn't help, haha.
Static balancing wheels could be done at home, very simple. Basically a stand with an axle and some bearings. It shows where the wheel is heavier. The faster the wheel stops and stands still the more off balance it is. Then is it sort of a guessing game to find how much counter weight to add on the opposite side. Use small amounts first gently taped on the rim. When the wheel has a hard time settling you are good to go. I guess there are tons of videos on youtube.
My experience is that this is almost never a problem but I usually work on newer bikes. Yours is kind of old and the wheels could have lived a hard life until you got it.
Here is an example from a swedish e-sales site.
Here is a link to the mini build. Unfortunately in swedish but a pic says a thousand words
