Default Chassis Weight

So my car is 160g too light. I need to get some weight in it, obviously. Don't have a hobby shop within a reasonable ride, so I was wondering if I could get something like the picture below in some place other than a hobby shop?

Sorry if this has been asked, couldn't find a thread that covered this.

You should be able to find those at maybe a Discount Tire Company or an NTB. They're just lead weights, and tire places use them to balance the tires they install for their customers.

I believe Hobby Lobby or Michaels also carries similar weights, to include the tungsten wooden box car weight sets.
