Blower wheel vibration

Is there anyway to balance a blower wheel inside a squirrel cage? I recently cleaned my squirrel cage, when I put it back together I notice the blower wheel is out of balance. It does not hit the side of the squirrel cage, however the unit is vibrating worse since I cleaned the wheel. I am thinking I might have damage the blower wheel when I was pulling it off the fan shaft. I am afriad if I keep running it, that it will ruin the bearings in the motor. The other possibility could the shaft on the motor cause the vibration? I was hoping I could try and balance the wheel, before I purchase I new one. If not how can i tell if the squirrel cage is out of balance? Or if it's the shaft in the fan motor. There is no physical damage to either the fan or the cage. Thanks for the help
