BS ISO 13988:2021 pdf download – Passenger car and light truck vehicle wheels — Clip and adhesive balance weight and rim flange nomenclature, test procedures and performance requirements
This document specifies procedures and minimum performance requirements for testing without tyres the retention of balance weights for use on wheels for passenger vehicles. It also specifies general features for configurations of clip balance weights, rim flanges for light alloy and steel wheels intended for use on passenger cars and adhesive balance weights. Alternative materials and geometries can be considered in the future.

clip balance weight assembly
assembly of the weight (3.1.1) and the clip (3.1.3), which is intended for mounting on the rim flange (3.3) to balance the tyre/wheel assembly about its axis of rotation and thus minimize vibrations due to the rotation of the tyre/wheel assembly
Note 1 to entry:
Figure 1 gives the terminology and nomenclature of balance weight assembly.
material of a specified mass with contours to conform to the surface of the rim flange (3.3)
Note 1 to entry: The material is recommended to be free of lead.
specially formed metal affixed to the weight (3.1.1) to mount the balance weight on the rim flange (3.3)
optional part of a clip 3.1.3) that protrudes from its surface interfacing with the rim flange 3.3)
balance weight coating
non-corrosive material coating to avoid corrosion
EXAMPLE Polyester, nylon.
balance weight key dimensions
dimensions that are essential for fitting the balance weight (3.1.1) on the rim flange (3.3)
balance weight size
size determined by the magnitude of the balance weight (3.1.1) mass
Note 1 to entry: Balance weight size is expressed in grams.
balance weight retention force
static force required to remove the balance weight (3.1.1) from the rim flange (3.3)
Note 1 to entry: Balance weight retention force is expressed in newtons.
balance weight retention
ability of the balance weight (3.1.1) to maintain its secure position on the rim flange (3.3) in various service conditions
measure of balance weight (3.1.1) press fit computed as the difference between the flange thickness and the weight gap
adhesive balance weight assembly
assembly of the weight portion (3.2.1) and the adhesive portion, which is intended for mounting on the rim to balance the tyre/wheel assembly about its axis of rotation and thus minimize vibrations due to the rotation of the tyre/wheel assembly
Note 1 to entry:
Figure 2 gives the terminology and nomenclature of the adhesive balance weight (3.1.1) assembly.
portion of the weight (3.1.1) that provide mass for balancing the wheel
Note 1 to entry: The material is recommended to be free of lead.BS ISO 13988 pdf download.
