Original part Hofmann Power Weight adhesive weight from: AUDI, MERCEDES-BENZ, CHRYSLER, LAND ROVER, ASTON MARTIN The adhesive weights have a thickness of 5.8mm (including adhesive tape) and a width of 15 mm. From 20 grams upwards the balancing weights are provided with one notch, from 35 grams with two notches, from 50 grams with three notches and from 65 grams with four notches. This makes it easier to shape the wheel to the rim radius. With lattice bar for even easier fitting to the rim. For vehicles where there is not enough installation space in the area of the brake caliper, please use the balancing weights 361. Made in Germany Why should you balance tyres at all? At a speed of 100 km/h the centrifugal force of a 10 g unbalance acts like the force of a sledge hammer. This makes wheels without balancing weights a danger: Without adhesive weights on steel and aluminium rims, wheel suspensions and bearings are subjected to greater stress. Missing balancing weights on steel and aluminium rims can also lead to noticeable vibrations at the steering wheel and in the interior. In addition, non-existent adhesive bars result in increased brake and tyre wear. Assembly of adhesive weights: Basically the rim surface must be free of grease, silicone, dust and dry before mounting the adhesive weights. The processing temperature of the adhesive weights must not fall below 10 °C and the surface for attachment to the rim must not exceed a maximum bevel of 15 °C from the hub direction. Then select the required grammage of the adhesive weights and, if necessary, separate the balancing weights from the adhesive bar or the adhesive weight roll.
