The weights will need to be taken off and the wheels rebalanced afterward.

Ahh, the hidden costs. I have yet to see that in a step of a "how to". I was looking at them, thinking I may want to do that, then realized something needed to be done with the weights.

Make them use the stick on weights is the way to go, but when you send the better half to get it done it doesn't always work out that way. Thats the glory of painting it yourself, you can do the repair job too .
