This way you won't lose the weights, and you never have to worry about them again. It gets pretty close and I haven't noticed changes after tire changes.

That's a great idea. I just run two rimlocks on the rear wheel (dirt), one up front and have never even noticed any vibrations or anything. No rimlocks on my street wheels and no balancing issues either. Lucky or happy idiot, dunno, but have never had any issues.
