Your eBay item is precisely what I ordered through my neighborhood auto repair shop. They're great for "house cars" and likely one of the cheapest sources (vs. free) that a modeler is likely to find.

Search eBay for Tire Weights. Among others, you'll find:

More weights than you'll need, probably, but OTOH, you can share with your friends.

I get lead free from the local tire stores. They use it to
balance wheels. They come in strips that are 1/4 and 1/8
thick. I usually get about 10 pounds at a time Free.
