However, many auto repair shops still use lead weights. Lead can be harmful to the environment and your health. The material they use in their wheel weights is much safer for the environment and for us. Lead wheel weights are slowly being worked out of the system, in many states it’s becoming illegal to use wheel weights that contain lead, and many more are proposing legislation to do the same.
3M Lead-Free Wheel weights are available now as the better environmentally friendly option. 3M is also a member of the EPA’s National Lead Free Wheel Weight Initiative.
