Just curious, why not get the wheel weights on the inside of the wheel?

my last 3 sets of wheels had the weights on the inside of the rim. Im not saying it looks like crap or anything, I was just curious if you had a choice in the matter

When balancing a wheel/tire, you need to balance inside and out

Truck looks good But I recommend scuffing the inside paint for sticky weights. Those tap on weights will take the paint off the outside. Pull the tires off antry a dremel with a little wire wheel or use rough grit sand paper. My brother has black rims and the paint came right off with the tap weights

looks good, minus the bottom of the tailgate where its still red. Get some spray on bedliner/spray paint to cover it up. Other than that, awsome job. How did get the herculiner in a straight line on the body? I herculined my bed, and it bled through the painters tape! Herculine it, or gtfo

Overall, great!

Though personally I'm not a fan of the flat (as in flush with the body) bumper. I really like the rest of it though! I think I'll eventually do the bottom of my truck too. Good job!

As for the weights, if you cannot move them... black fingernail polish? Just a thought. I use it to mark my metric wrenches for quick reference and it sticks well!

That sure seems like alot of weight on that tire. I cant imagine how they would be that out of balance if the tires are new.

Here you can get what they call a static balance. Which is weight clipped on the inside.

I personally dont like the clip weights at all, they seem to corride my aluminum wheels where the weight is.

I get the paper sticky weight.

I would check about the balance tho, just seems like alot to me.

i couldn't do any of those because they are steel wheel they are weak very flexible wheels also the tires are brand new i couldn.t do anything to get rid of all those weights i work on cars for a living and i couldn't do anything about the weights the sticky weights wouldn't have stuck to the powdercoat on the wheels eaithier.
