Wheel Weights

Wheel weights are used on vehicles in order to ensure that the the wheel is balanced and has an even distribution of mass. When a vehicle's wheels are not properly balanced, vibrations can occur in the wheel and in the vehicle itself as the vehicle inceases it's speed. These weights were typically made out of lead over the years, but due to the toxicity of lead, zinc and steel are now used as an effective alternative. Wheel balancing is typically professionally done. Adding or reducing weight is how the wheel's are balanced. Static balancers or dynamic balancers are the two methods used to balance tires. Tire weights are typically clipped to the edges of the rim which holds them in place or the weight s can be applied to the rim with the use of an adhesive backing. Wheel weights are typically rated by their weight, not by their shape or size.
