It is a right handed thread, however they make a special tool to hold the balancer still while loosening the center bolt. that is put on a very high torque. Tool may be available at local auto parts store loaner tool program call them to be sure.
Definitely need a high torque impact gun to get that bolt loose or lots of meat and potatoes applied to the end of a
4 foot breaker bar.
