If the aluminum hubs are using the plastic reducers you have to run the smaller bearings and the orginal stock bearings that are used in the plastic hubs will not work in the aluminum ones. At least thats the deal with the stock Xray pieces.

Lead weight strip pieces attached to the outside of the battery furthest from the centre line of the car. Only $3-$4 for all the weight you'll need.

The bearings are the same as the ones that come with Xray alum ones.

Daz, the 664 are used on the L1/L2 roll centers as they have the little dot molded into them and that is meant to be mounted one way not the other. The 663 are used everywhere else on the kit.

What you really want is these

mag wheel tyre balance weights (the shiny ones, not the lead looking ones)..

i purchase these for $1-$2 per strip of 60gm weights (4x10gms,4x5gms)..
they also come with pretty damn good double sided tape pre-mounted to them so they are ready to use..

these are purchased locally from "Tyre Power" but i'm sure most tyre fitters have these

It does not state, however, what size bearings it uses, but based on the picture, it seems like the stock ones.
Bearings are included and are 5x9x3 (same size as used in the Xray optional pieces). I'll update the description to show this.
