    Cost, always a question? I can see where less damage to wheels is wonderful, as I have been doing this for some 45 years. The video where the tech removes the weights is a little goofy. The first weight removed, you can clearly see his tool touching the wheel, on the second weight he actually moved his tool a little higher. Just a thought for your edit team. Show us the price and availability try to remember, cost is real important following all these regulation changes.
