I got enough sense to tell you that between the heat,cold,brake dust,and dirt these over time will come off and damage either the car,wheels or the brake system.This fix is like trying to wrap tape around a leaking pipe or using a piece of copper pipe in place of a fuse.The bottom line is it will not work.These weights fly off of wheels all the time and never get as hot as they will get on a brake system.These weights are not designed to be used for this and will not work.DELETE........
And how do you know that

A) they are wheel weights and not some other type of weight specifically desigend for this (see 2nd picture where its clearly shown they are differently shaped)

and

B) that they didnt see the obvious (regular glue wont hold) and attached said weights with some sort of high temp compound that WONT let them fly off.

Since when did this whole place get a mechanical engineering degree? If it was unsafe or would fall apart they wouldn't have released it, they KNOW they are under the microscope.
