Default Tire Weights?

How much weight is everyone running in the front tires?

i added about 2-3oz per front tire to my rig. I may be adding a bit more. Its not "necessary" but in some cases it can help. run you rig add some weight, run it again, see if it does better and decide fron there.

Each wheel has 12 to 14 1/4oz weights for a total of 3oz+ inside it. Same front & rear. I also have another 12 or so stuck to the axle housings themselves. I have a pretty high COG on my WK so I need more to help lower it... or try to lower it.

So what is the preferred method of putting the weights in? Loose weight, like BBs, or secured weight, like the ones you can stick inside the wheel?
