Re: balancing weights , clip vs adhesive
Stick on weights, like others have said, will work just as good as clip on weights as long as the rim is clean.
The major factor is getting the rim to balance properly is balancer setup. If they are balanced on the "dual plane" (ie one on the inside, one on the outside) there should be no issue with getting a balance unlike that of the clip on.
Vibrations happen when they are either balanced Statically (one weight in the centre of the rim, balancing the up and down movement not side to side) or when the placement of the weight is not where the machine says it should be. When you start to balance with one weight on the inside edge, and another in the middle (as there is no spot on the face of the rim) there distance between each weight needs to be calculated properly.
We do tire installations at my shop, but mostly balancing for seasonal swaps on european cars which need the stick on weights. Takes longer for sure to do the first time, but keeps down the customer complaints and come-backs.
