    wheel balancing weights

    Just had some new tyres fitted to my standard 16s on my astra. The tyres are great. The only thing is I now have a strip of balancng weights just on the inside of the wheels so they are clearly visible within the gaps of the spokes. Does anyone know anything about balancing wheels and whether I should take them back and get them re-balanced with the weights right on the inside rim of the wheels? Out of sight (if thats possible).

    They are there because thats where they need to be, moving them will only make the wheels go out of balance. Give them a few weeks and they will literally fade to grey and you won't noice
