I just wanted to share the results of my latest score. I just finished sorting a bucket of wheelweights that I got from my local tire shop. The percentage of lead is slowly getting smaller in favor of other materials but I'm still seeing about 60% lead. Thats better than other areas are seeing.

What I am seeing is that Steel weights seem to be replacing Zinc weights, which I see as a good thing. I'm also seeing more stick-on weights.

I'm not actively looking for lead anymore. This little shop is local to me and is the only place that I get weights from anymore, except for what me and a buddy pick up off of the street corners and exit ramps. Don't laugh, this comes to nearly 5 gallons of weights a year. Its kind of a game to us!

I'm not bragging ;), just wanted to share my findings with any of you that still use weights.

👍. lightman, I’m just getting back into casting, and I discovered something quite peculiar! My 5 gallon bucket weighs a lots more than it did about 15 years ago when I stored them in the pole barn! How can that happen? 😂 memtb
