Re: Wheel balancing and weights

  In the "I always wondered" dept.....

  When they use those stick-on weights, how do they compensate for the fact
  that the sitck-on
  weights are not the same distance from the rotational axis of the wheel
  Vs the "pound-on" type
  that attach to the outermost lip of the rim? I should think that it would
  be required to add additional
  weight Vs what the balancing machine says to use when using those
  stick-on weights.....
  or do you just set the machine for 14" wheels when balancing 15" wheels
  with stick-ons, etc?

  Do the guys that typically balance your wheels know what they're doin'

  This has been keepin' me up at night for too long now to go unanswered!
