    • 3M™ Wheel Weight System

      When people think about the features they want in a car—good gas mileage, a smooth, safe ride—they don't often think of wheel weights. But you're an industry pro. You know the right wheel weight can hold the key to all these benefits, and more.

      The 3M™ Wheel Weight System helps you deliver the smooth, comfortable ride your customers demand. Our system combines conformable wheel balancing material and industry-leading 3M™ Automotive Attachment Tape to provide an all-in-one, securely attached wheel weight balancing system.

      The material is available for service shops and dealerships in small rolls that can be cut-to-weight, and large, level-wound rolls for automated application in assembly plants. The weights, along with the automated equipment offer reduced inventory and overall systems costs. The weights are also highly amenable to the robotic manufacturing of automobiles.

      Designed to have less impact on the environment than the industry-standard lead wheel weights, the 3M Wheel Weight System meets the ever-increasing needs for lead-free, quality products. Not only is the material flexible, but unlike traditional weights, it can be custom cut to the exact size and weight required for precision balanced wheels. Proper wheel balance provides customers better gas mileage, a longer lasting tire and a smoother ride.
