Stick ons or clip ons don't balance differently. Same weight, same place. The difference is that steel rims don't take damage from clip on weights while the aluminum gets gouged both by the weight and the pliers taking them off.
It's far easier to use clip weights as you have to clean the area for stick ons. You can request clipons next time, they may want you to sign off on damage though.
