Wheel weight question

Sat Mar 19, 2011 9:54 pm

Anyone have an idea what these came off of ?
A friend came by the shop today and asked me, said he had them on a cub at one time.
They show a little orange so I was thinking maybe a Allias Chalmbers G or something small since their not as heavy and a cub front weight. Sorry, I didn't have time for measurements.

At one time Allis Chalmers purchased/owned/operated a 2 wheeled garden tractor factory. The wheel weights on the 2 wheeled garden tractor in the above link fit the Cub's front rims - weigh about 25 or 26 lbs each.

Actually, it's hard to tell where the wheel weights came from. A number of manufacturers used the same rims and same wheel weights.

Thanks Eugene, looks really close to what you have on the garden tractor.
They show numbers but no ID that I can see. I'll hit them with the air brush tomorrow and see if anything turns up.

Looks like they were made to stack more than one to a wheel

Could be David, I'm guessing Eugene's about right on the weight of them.
They could end up on the front inside of Grayson's cub, that would look pretty good. :wink:
