Anyone move his WHEEL WEIGHTS to the inside of the rims? Questions...

Hey folks,

The more I look at it (them), the more I realize that I just shouldn't be looking at wheel weights on these Z06 rims. I guess I'd like to move 'em to the inside of the rims. Couple of questions...

- When you had them removed from the outside, were the wheels scarred/chipped? (My car was built in the last week of Jan, and has been driven 15 times or so since taking delivery. Can I expect the paint to be hurt under the weights, or should they be ok still?)

- What's this process cost? And can/should any shop do this?

- Is there much chance that the balancing won't be "as right" as it is now? (The wheel balancing feels very good from the factory.)

Thanks, folks! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Like FUBU, when I swapped to the chromies, I had the weights placed on the inside. No problems. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif

When my Zs arrived, I had damaged wheels because the factory had placed the weights in the wrong place, removed them and then put the weights back on.

I work in an automotive factory and the weights are beat on with a hammer. If you pry them off, the paint will definitely have scratches and chips.
