lol are you kidding? Please tell me you are! If your ride starts to get bumppy get it to a place right away!

Also have them put the weights on the inside of the rim like last time b/c the weights on the outside look like crap with custom rims.

umm just call a tireshop and ask them how much will it cost to have your tires and rims balanced. Just tell them you took off the rim weights that balance the rim/tire and ask them how much??

considering you should still see the spots they were stuck on there at...you can put them back on yourself.

I would just take it back to the shop because if you try to put them back yourself and you're off by a hair it will not be balanced. Placement is crucial.

Of all his rims? rofl

But yeah, wheel balance is a HUGE issue. Think of a washing machine going off balance... that's your wheels if they aren't perfectly weighted. rofl
