weight removed on both rear wheels???

Hi everyone,
I just found out the weight form my rear wheels are gone.
is is possible someone from dealer removed them last time I was there for wheel alignment ?

does the store balance the tire when they do alignment?

I still can't figure out why they are gone..is it possible someone removed them in the parking lot? both size of rare wheels' weight are gone. front wheels' weight are still there.

thanks!

Do you see residue left from the stick on weights? Any vibrations? How long ago did you get the services done?

I do see the residues on both rear wheels. I don't drive a lot highways and I have not noticed any major vibrations.i will give it a try soon. Service was done not long ago. Sometime early last month.

I would check with the dealership and inquire if they rebalanced the wheels. Sometimes they will remove the old weights and add new weights where needed when rebalancing them. Surprised your not getting any vibrations when driving

Most likely they just fell off. I would get them re balanced.
