Re: What methods do you use to add weight to an empty flatcar?

Get the exact balance required for the job with these wheel weights! The lead-free weights come in strips and are individually scored in 1/4 oz. segments to make the exact weight for each balancing job. The weights feature adhesive backings for easy, secure attachment. Adhesive tape backing. Lead free (y/n) Shipping Weight.

clip-on weights for balancing tires would be very useful for a variety of cars (once they have been flattened), as they come in assortment of weights/sizes

Auto Zone and some of the other Auto supply houses have lead/tin with self stick down to ¼ oz . and a box cost about $10 -$15.

    I did a search on Auto Zone and found nothing except clip on weights.  What are exact words to search for and do you have names for other supply houses.
