This SAE Recommended Practice is intended to serve as a guide for standardization of features, dimensions, and configurations of balance weights for aluminum and steel wheels intended for use on passenger cars, light trucks, and multipurpose vehicles to assure good installation and retention of the balance weight. This document also provides test procedures and minimum performance requirements for testing balance weight retention.
This document is being revised to add a shear force value when testing the Adhesive Weight removal, Paragraph 8.7.8.
Test procedures 8.3, 8.7.6, 10.01 were updated.

The SAE Wheel Standards Committee develops standards for passenger cars and light trucks which address three or more of the following: Reduce costs, Harmonize global markets, Facilitate trade through reduced regulation, Enhance safety, Improve environment, Increase productivity of processes, Allow uniform testing or performance, Create common language, Permit common interfaces.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
