Don't know if they actually changed the ones for the cub, but the weights for the Super A fit but look slightly different.

Hey Richey...Can you post a photo of your weights? I have seen some Cub wheel weights (Yo's Dad's Cub) where the center holes were much bigger that the normal Cub center holes...but they still fit and looked fine!

I just ran out and did some measuring. The bolt patterns are: cub has a 14" diam with a 6" center hole, the A has a 13 1/2 diam with an 8 1/4 center hole.

I have A weights on my Lo-boy. The bolt holes line up but the weight does not fit tight against the hub.
