[DML] Wheel Balancing Damage

Does anyone know of a wheel spin balancer that doesn't use a large metal plate to clamp down on the rim?  Every place I have seen uses this spin on plate that when tightened down on a rim leaves a gouge or scratch mark on the face of the rim.
  I'm sure you have all seen them....the tech puts the tire on the horizontal post and then takes the plate and spins it on until it cinches up tight.  He then sometimes hits it with the mallet to make sure it's on "good and tight".  There is not padding between the rim and this metal plate.
  I'm going to be getting refurbished rims soon but I don't want to worry about wheel balance dig marks on my pretty new rims.

  I know there are "Balance on the car" units but here in Maine I have no idea where one would be.  Is there another method of spin balancing I can suggest to my tire guy so he doesn't leave circular marks on my rims?
