It doesn't look like it. I would make sure that the wheel and weight were clean before you put them on to make sure nothing is sandwiched between them. I also did new carriage bolts, washers and nylocks and snugged them up very tight so they won't wobble. It looks like they fit snug enough to not be an issue with rub/wear but I've only had them on for 2 days and not yet taken them off! (<-Others may have better insight as I haven't had enough experience with them yet)Do the plastic weights scratch up the wheel?
