Gee Casey, don't hold back. Tell us how you really feel!
Troy, I know it reads somewhat harsh, but there are only so many ways to bolt a wheel weight on a rim, and NONE of them guarantee ZERO rim damage, just reduced. But seriously, how can we worry about the rim and never once concern ourselves with floorboard scratches, or worse, the paint wearing off the pedals. And we can't forget, if you tow a cart, that pretty hitch will get all the paint scratched right off of it. You have to ask yourself, how worried can you be about a scratch on a rim from a wheel weight?? What would be the difference with a hubcap, now there is a scratch and a half compared to a wheel weight. And besides, as soon as you mount or dismount a tire you scuff the bead, and then you bolt that wheel on the tractor, and if not careful the socket wrench will scratch the rim paint. We rarely think twice about all of those scratches...

The best way to prevent rim damage, scratches from wheel weights is DO NOT put wheel weights on.
Load the tires with LIQUID ballast and you have your extra weight with no RIM damage.
