These work fine, but theres about a three week wait.
You can buy British, but they are the same ones!!

I never considered balancing when I was running inner tubes and I always had the gripper opposite the valve, but when I moved to TUBliss, with the rim lock and valve so close together, the balance of the front was so far out it was a nightmare. I initially bought some stick on wheel weights, and balanced it pretty well, but there isn't much flat rim to fix the weights to, and I soon lost a few.
I then looked around my garage and found some old lead flashing, so I cut some into narrow strips and wound them around the nipple and spoke, holding them in place with resin. 
 
That bodge has worked for several years, but I'm looking for something better.
 
I was thinking of trying these brass weights with grub screws. Has anyone tried them?

or maybe make my own!! Hah

Ive got a set on order, probably 3 weeks.
If youre stuck, you can buy whatever.
Dont think Ill use many, but tubliss do need a fair bit to balance.

I had seen the brass ones but there is not much choice in getting it right,
The local garage can do stick on one's into the centre as there spoked gs wheels..
And a wider choice of weights..I removed the last lot as they were stuck too the outer rim.(there before I bought it.)
Which is what I was trying too avoid..
You can get the brass ones on ebay..
