    Powder Coating

    I have just had my wheels powder coated and had new Metzelers Roadtec 01SE tyres fitted to my Rex, but I am unable to get the balance weights to stick to the wheels. They fall off in about 3 days. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Regards,

    Put a smear of silicon on the weight and stick it in place with masking tape until it sets.

    The issue will be with crap glue or double sided tape used on the weights,powdercoat is not a non stick surface just a hard wearing one.
    Had to use bostic etc etc when some weights fail to stay on paint chrome and anodised rims.
    Making sure the area is grease oil n dust free 1st the if it moves glue or a panel adhesive like tigerseal will defo work but at ?12 a tube is a tad spensiv

    If you use carpet double sided tape on the back of the wheel weights, that will solve your adhesion problems.
    Any DIY store stocks it.
