Perfect Equipment, Inc., the longest tenured wheel weight manufacturer still in existence, manufactures lead-free wheel weights out of zinc and steel using several patented processes. The benefits of using zinc and steel as a lead-free alternative are that it provides shop owners with a similar appearance and installation process as with the traditional lead products they are used to using without sacrificing retention and corrosion. Perfect Equipment offers a full catalog of weight types in steel and zinc, including clamp-on and adhesives, for light passenger vehicles all the way to heavy duty equipment. Due to Perfect Equipment's many OEM partnerships, it is able to utilize its expansive history in R&D to perfect its product offering, and then offer those same products and technologies to the aftermarket. Perfect Equipment, Inc is located at 1715 Joe B Jackson Parkway, Murfreesboro, TN 37127. For more information, please contact us at 1-800-251-1566, or online at
