The wheel weights on my bike are stamped "5". Would these be 5 grams? Or .5 oz? I don't see a decimal point on the weight.

Likely 0.5oz. Lead or tungsten 0.5oz weight is about the size of a Chiclet. 5gm would be close to the size of a tictac.

I wuz thinking .5 oz but hoping 5 gr. That means I have 12 oz of weights on rear tire. I don’t know what normal is but that seems high even for 50/50 tire. Oh well...

Anyways, thanks.

While we are at it. What are the best brand quality weights that remain stuck for non spoke wheels, I have had them come off in washing etc. Are there any lead ones?

I bought a big box of wheel weights I use for my cars and motorcycles from Napa. Was something like 35 dollars they're 1/4 oz sections come in strips. I may be dead before I use all of them haha. Or my kids will at least be in middle school.
