In the past two years I have collected near 5000 lbs. and have never paid one red cent for them not one. Mine is a sweet deal I collect the wheel weights and two other people make shot I get one third of the end product. These two other people are retired and I am on the road in and out of the kind of places that have the weights. As I repair gas pumps. Paul
Scrap cars are 75 a ton right now around here. But just for grins lets see $50.
divided by 2000 is .025 cents per lb. So the guys throwing them in junk cars are idiots? I have not checked the market on wheel weights but I will on Monday. Oh by the way I have been in the salvage industry since 1981 so I know of what I speak. Bill
