I don't tape my weights on street tires, and haven't had any issues. They're loud as hell now and have some rubber boogers etc. so I don't really know that I'm seeing any benefit from the weights anyway.
I live in the center of 3 tracks. None are really far away but none are close. So I'd go crazy driving there.
Is it me or do you find yourself spending about 15 minutes picking those rubber boogers off your tires? Its better than picking your own nose!
