just ask the tire store for used weights. most times they will sell for low costs and/or just give em to ya. got a couple 5 gallon buckets full of old weights for casting bullets.

for motorcycle been using stick-on weight, lead solder wrapped around spokes and OEM weights that anchors on spoke nipples.
