Even then I would have to cut a notch for the wheel weights and valve stem. And yes, when I had the tires balanced I asked for aluminum wheel weights. Those lead ones are heavy!
Okay, that made me laugh. Reminded me of a riddle:

Which is heavier: A pound of feathers or a pound of lead?"

Anyway, I was able to get a new set of shorter lugs at the tire shop when I had my tires balanced. I would advice against the ones at Autozone, as they actually fell apart in one case.

Well I know it's more than a certain number or it is that number. On my car 55 is enough for me. It feels as if I'm riding with cut springs.
