    Composite-based, non-lead and very flexible, 3M™ Wheel Weight materials meet and exceed OEM performance standards and integrate easily into high-speed tire balancing processes. Level-wound rolls can be cut on demand, and 3M works with equipment suppliers to deliver semi-automated and fully automated wheel weight application solutions. Our wheel weight materials help reduce cycle times, balancer rejects and residual imbalance in wheel assembly. They may also reduce stocking costs related to parts and inventory.
