What’s worse than a car with shaking, unbalanced wheels? A lot, but the noises and vibrations associated with unbalanced wheels can quickly turn a pleasant Sunday drive into a rush-hour commute.
Luckily the 3M Company has developed an all-new way of balancing wheels. Rather than using individual stick-on or clip-on weights, the 3M Wheel Weight System uses a roll of material that gets trimmed to the correct weight and then stuck to the rim. This quickens and simplifies the process of wheel balancing. Best of all, the system is lead free — with less heavy metal than a Yanni concert or a serving of swordfish, so it’s better for you and the environment.
