Wheel weights & Looking for Ideas

I am looking at a range of 2SS Camaros in dealer lots and almost all of the 20 inch stock SS rims have a huge number of wheel weights on them to balance them out. Some are placed at the back of the rim, some near the front - very visible. Is this typical for wheels this size, or is it a symptom of something else? Anyone find one with 20 inch rims that have few or no weights on them?

Second question - has anyone put solid rims (like the ones in the attached pic) on their 2010 Camaro? If so, any suggestions for manufacturers, and whether solid rims (some seem very deep) would run into problems with the brakes?

Thanks!

probably can't...Centerline and Cragar and Summit/Jegs have those. They are all 0 offset with some kind of BS measurement.

And FYI...my OEM 22s on my Avalanche took less weight than the pirellis and the stock camaro wheels. Know what's worse? My NT05s on the camaro used less weight than the Pirellis. IMO, the Pirellis are the problem.
