I am sorry to hear of this issue, yes that was where the weights have been placed. Although our balance machines would have instructed the tech to place them on the inside barrel for balance, as Robert.Mauro mentioned the weights needed to be in farther into the wheel to avoid being clipped with the brake caliper. If you would, feel free to give a call to the store or stop by, they would be happy to clean the residue off and rebalance all the wheels at no charge. Let me know if i can be of any assistance on my end.
My pleasure, and thank you for your business. Looks awesome!
Short answer... no rubs and no loss of MPG.looks great! any rubbing, or loss of mpg?
How can you tell they are the Outback rim in the picture? It looks close to the Ascent's 18" rim, but I don't have a good eye for these type of things.They're literally 'down the road" from me (under 10 miles), but I've never used them. The part numbers are indeed Ascent part numbers (Base and Premium 18"), but, that's not an Ascent rim pictured (it's an Outback rim, which is not designed to carry the weight of the Ascent).
I suspect they simply grabbed the image that comes up on Google, but just ensure the rim you get matches the part numbers they list on the page.
