Why does the factory use metal wheel balancing weights instead of the stick-ons? 3 of the wheels on my z have metal and 1 now has stick ons courtesy of GoodYear... just curious as to when to use one over the other. (the 2 rear wheels have 1.25oz metal weights on them).

In order to do a good balance job, the weights should be placed out as far as possible (the edge of the wheels). Many, including myself use stick on with no ill effects.
