    My Black Pro Comp 7089 seem to not like the sticker wheel weights. I find them in the driveway and have to go get the wheel rebalanced. is there any way to get them to actually stick?

    or use hammer on weights on the inside of the rims. I've been doing that for awhile now and they balance just fine and don't fall off.

    Some teflon coatings on the newer style wheels make it hard for the weights to stick that or it was a poor prep job before they placed the weight.

    If you do have a teflon coating your options are to sand/rough up the area where the weight is going or just static balance them by using a clip weight on the inner lip.
