Stick on weights rather than hammer on weights.
One time one of my CF wheels ended up with no weights.

The tire dude was impressed.

Anyway, stick-on are cheaper.

Re: Garage recommendation for changing to winter wheels

We live in Colorado now and have all season tires. There are no all season tires in CH?

(Hoping to move to Zurich early 2016.)

You can get all season tyres, if you stay in ZH 90% of the time they will be fine, if you go to the mountains to ski every weekend regardless of weather winter tyres will be much better.

All season tyres are a compromise.

I think you live in Basel, in Prattlen 1 garage is 15 per tire.

http://www.reifendirekt.ch/cgi-bin/stationssuche.pl

Is that 15 for taking the old wheel off, and another 15 for putting the new one on? When I looked at prices before it seemed like there was a separate cost for each step. E.g. 15 for taking the wheel off, 15 for taking the tyre off, 15 for putting the new tyre on...

A colleague DIY'd his winter wheels once and used the same bolts that came with his summer alloys on the winter steel wheels.... I think he must be disabled?? ;-)
