The wheel weights that were used to balance my tires dont fit AND don't stick!

The last weights that were used last time fit well and stay stuck.

Of course, there are no ID marks on them (another reason I like them), so I have no idea who makes them.

The weights are Black, square shape, approx. 12.2mm wide, no logos.

If you know where to get them, please let me know. Thanks!

Just ordered some weights.

Couldn't find the blank ones. Got some that look the same, except with a 5 imprinted.

I'm not a balance beads kind of guy.
I've messed around with the dyna beads and liquids in the past and had very mixed results. One of those things I really wanted it to work since it seems to be such an elegant solution to the problem, but IME they just don't always work.I can't really explain why, other than removing the beads and balancing on a stand ALWAYS works.

Fucked me again.

After all that, I receive these in the mail.



The same shit that doesn't work.

Will have to return them and start searching again.
