Adhesive or clip on weights? Or both?

My tires (33x12.50) require some large clip on weights.
I got rid of those and went with adhesive weights that are inside the wheel near the brakes. Looks much better, but isn't balanced as well.

So, I want to leave the adhesive weights on and add clip on weights to fine tune the balancing. I figure using both kinds of weights will allow the clip on weights to be smaller. Is this true?

What wheels? My Cragars have the clip on weights on the inside. If your wheel has enough lip inside they can do that.....

Inside the wheel, not on the back side. I was conscious of this distinction when I posted, but I failed explaining. Here's a pic.

So adhesive weights are applied to the area that the arrow points to. Clip on weights are clipped on to the outer or inner lip.

Do you get any vibrations?
The guys at 4wheelparts say you can't get a perfect balance with these kind of weights. Something about lateral balancing....

Im running adhesive weights without any balance issues. I liked them this way better because it reduced any risk of scraping the weights off on the trail.

No problems with balancing

Thanks guys!

Instead of getting into an argument with 4wheelparts that they should be able to balance correctly with adhesive weights, I guess I'll submit and have the clip weights installed.
