Geocache Description:

The given coordinates are where you can shop till you drop, but are unrelated to this cache. Don't spend too long in there!

This wheel would like to spin as fast as it can without any wobbling. To do that, it needs to be perfectly balanced. There are ten pits spread evenly around the outside of the wheel, each containing a number of shaped weights. Each shape has a distinct weight value between zero and nine - ie, no two shapes share the same value. The sum of the weights in one pit must equal the sum of the weights in the pit on the opposite side of the wheel.

Once the each shape's weight has been determined, substitute into the coordinates below for the location of the cache.

Cache is a 400ml painted sistema container.
