Default 1/8 scale tire balance

I have some questions on tire balance. What do you use for the weights? clay, epoxy, jbweld? other than cleaning the inside of wheel and it being dry, any other prep need to help the clay or epoxy to stay adhered to the wheel?

Any and all suggestions welcomed, I have some wheels that are severly out of balanced

Thanks

Lead tape. Sticks good and dirt won't stick to it. http://www.amazon.com/Unique-LD-36-T...181986&sr=1-12
