    Tape weights are OK......IF they don't stack 'em to high.

    I had a set of 35" tires on steal wheels that a shop stacked tape weights 3 layers high and the damn things wouldn't clear my calipers.

    I ended up using EQUAL instead.

    Yeah Equal. You know the sugar substitute people use in their tea. :D Actually their is a product called Equal that is used to balance tires you add it to the inside of the tires and it balances the tire by centrifugal forces.
