Default Lexus LX470 balancing issue?

Hello Everyone. I went to Belle Tire and got new set of tires, they did the alignment and balanced my tires.. however there is a shake in the tire. ( its not a bent rim, suspension is very good everything checked out ok), come to find out that the Cone ( heavy metal piece looks like a cone shape) they use to mount the tire onto there balancer does not fit properly on the rim. They tried all the cones they had in the store. They also sent me to another belle tire store, but no luck. They can not do a finger mount becuase of the shape of the way the holes are in my 2005 lexus LX470's rims. I guess the angle of the cones they have is not tappered enoguh to keep the tire flushed against the back plate. My question is, does lexus uses special cones for balancing lexus rims, if so than whats the specifications on that and where do you find it. My issue is that the tire is not mounting correcty on the balancer with the correct cone size. Any clues.
