I wouldn't see why a rim and tire couldnt be balanced regardless if it is shaved unless the center has been milled out for the adapters. You can install balance media through you valve stem and you can get Centramtic balancers that bolt on behind the rim that balance as you drive.
An RV dealership or semi shop should be able to help. Most Tire Kingdom and general passenger tire shops can't do it.

not sure what a shaved wheel is, is it when the lip is machined for clearance? No idea if thats why but any tire shop can static balance a wheel with stick on weights anywhere on the inside face of the wheel where it wont hit the caliper.

Again a good reason to go with the balance media or something like balance masters.

My 22.5's wont be shaved and I am going with the Balance Masters myself.
