    like where they put the weight if you take it in to a shop? or am I misunderstanding you? If not then all the tires we have with big lips the put strips on the inside were you can see them not the clips they put on reg. rims. hope that helps if not I tried...

    If you're worried about 'looks' - do some research on EQUAL tire balancing.

    It's good stuff. My husband and I had it in our Jeep tires (35 x 12.50 x 15) for atleast 4 years without any problems or issues. And that's even with a lot of airing down/airing up, etc.

    You just need to find a shop who installs it and knows how much to use. The amount that is used can be critical.
