    I had a set of the 3rd gen trd offroad wheels mounted on my 2 gen, they used stick on weights and i found some in my driveway and the tires are definately out of balance. I wonder if there is any other way besides using the sticky weights to balance these rims right.

    Tell em to put the weights on the backside so it doesnt scuff up the rims where people see them. Or to get better sticky weights

    Probably just didn't clean the wheel before putting weights on.

    I kept throwing hammer on weights in no time, my stick on weights have had no issues
