wheel weight fell off

Recently curbed my passenger side rear wheel but only a small rash. Unfortunately, the wheel weight has fallen off because thats the part that hit the curb. Can I get one and just hammer it on myself? Its the small weight that clamps on the rim lip and not the large one. Is it ok to drive the car without the weight for a few days until I get it fixed?

unless you remember what the weight of it was, I wouldn't suggest just slapping on another one.

if you curbed it hard enough that a weight came off, you probably want to have that checked out.

having it out of balance in the rear won't really be all that noticable, but there is a reason why the weight was on there in the first place

Short answer, no it won't hurt. Take car into a tire shop and have them check the wheel for out-of-round and then rebalance it.
