I think the 'Pine Car' series have the stick on weights...

But they are not very big..

The stick on weights I've used could be duplicated with slices of wheel weights plus that foam double-stick tape used to hang light pictures on walls (cheap) or "servo tape" (more expensive from the hobby shop).

Go to any automotive aftermarket wheel and tire shop. They use the stick on weights to balance mag wheels when the user wants no weight on the rim lip.

Note that the PineCar weights are not lead according to the current package.

Appear to be lighter metal so are bigger.

Use old tire weights from your local tire store. Cut out the metal clip and hammer the ends flat. Use the tape mentioned in a previous post to mount them.
