if you have black rims they screwed up in a way.. when u balence a tire there different setting for different weights if u didnt already know. they should of used a static weoght balence... which is they put the grey weight on the inside of the rim (towards your breaks), and the other is what i call a sticky weight that goes on the inside of your rim. thats if they did it right, which im assuming they didnt

I would use model paint or something similar that comes with a small brush to apply the paint with.

i also have black rims with the weights on the outside. the tire shop reccomends that due to the sub zero temps not allowing the weights to properly stick to the inside of the wheel. and i've been painting my weights since 1992
