Wheel Wax and Weights

How many of you wax the barrels of your wheels and had issues with wheel/balancing weights falling off?

I don't know whether or not I should wax the inner part of the wheels because looking online, some people have said that they've had issues with their weights either not sticking or flying off?

If you wax the inside of your wheels after the weights have been applied so that your waxing around the weights you should be fine.

Tire installers clean the inside of the wheel before applying the weight anyways.

How clean it is depends on how strong the solvent is that they use.
