i got a set of used set of rota attacks. and just like 20min ago coming home from work, i got up to like 65mph-70mph & my steering wheel started to shake back & forth
soon as i got home (i didnt look when i got the wheels
) i noticed like half of the little square wheel weights in the hub of the wheels are missing from all four wheels. i can still see the adhesive outline of where it used to be, sooooo.....can i just buy some weights & stick em back on there, or would it be better to take it to a wheel shop
any help is appreciated & thanks for you timw

I would take it to a shop and have them balance the wheels. You don't know the weight of the.....um.....weight that is missing.


It won't cost too much to just balance them.
Exactly.
There's no way that you can guess what you should do w/o a balancing machine.
