    I am looking at buying some 16" Pro-Comp 7032's. I usually mount and balance my own tires at a buddies shop using hammer-on weights. However, It appears that stick-on wheel weights will have to be used on the outer side (looks better anyway). Has anyone ran into clearance issues between stick-on weights and the calipers?

    Thanks.

    Yes on the front the caliper will knock off sticky weights with a 16" rim if they are thick at all. I use the hammer weights to the inside of my rim!

    Thanks. So you use no weights (stick on or hammer on) on the outside at all? Conventional Balancing or Road Force Balancing?

    I have nothing on outside of wheel. Done both balancing, conventional I have better luck with these mudd tires.
