    If you're using wheel weights for bullets you might want to start stocking up. I think they are on thier way out. They are not politicaly correct now. They fall off now and then and result in the horrible lead contamination we are exposed to along our highways. The US post office is replacing the lead weights on thier trucks to avoid contaminating the road side. They are bringing them in just for that instead of doing it when they replace tires. It must be very important if they do it that way. I'm sure this will spread to other do-gooder entities.

    The 5 gal bucket of weights I have been working on has about 5% non lead junk in it, so it wont be long before its all gone. Time to hoarde lead weights and then none will be left on my cars.

    Trying to think of the last time I ever saw a mail truck going fast enough to warrant balanced wheels
