I haz teh bed gramers

Default Wheel weights fell of during mounting ?

I had a set of rota tarmac 3s mounted and balanced 4 days ago and finally got a chance to mount them.

When I was done with the stack of wheels I noticed a little pile of weights laying where the wheels were.

I got them mounted at EDT tire since tirerack recommended them.

Is there any kind of special coating on the wheels or something, or did they do a ****ty job?

I take it these were the adhesive tape style that go inside the wheel? I've lost a couple of those occasionally, but never before the wheels even made it onto the car! Sounds to me like someone didn't do a good job.

Yeah, those are the ones. Seems like the tape on them is really crappy. it hardly sticks when I touch it.

Anything I should tell these guys tomorrow? Do they have more then 1 type of weight to choose from?

Sounds like they didn't clean the brake dust off before sticking them on...
