Mixture of inner and outer weights?

I bought new tires (33x12.50R15 Duratracs) and they put the weights on the outside. They rode fine. I then had the outer weights removed and adhesive inner weights applied. I now have some vibration.

The guys at 4WheelParts said this could happen, since a tire cannot be balanced with inner weights as well as outer weights.

I don't mind outer weights, but they were so big they were ugly. So would this be a good idea? Start with inner weights. Then apply smaller outer weights to fine tune the balancing.

Can that work? If so, is this a reasonable request to 4WheelParts?

Thanks guys!
