I agree with Kenny. If you can get some pics of the setup I'm sure something can be figured out.

I had the same weights before. I sold them on craigslist last summer. They were for the 8" large frame wheels.

 

Mine came with 2 coupling nuts per wheel that you screwed to the existing studs, then you used the original lugnuts the hole the weights on.

Why Thank you !! I never thought of that and wondered how the heck do they mount. Mine will be going on ASAP. It's never been a priority to mount them, since it is that simple I'll do it.
Haven't forgot about the driveshaft, I just have to dig in my shed full of stuff.

They are 3 different sizes Sam. Only one set will fit the 8" LF wheels. And they aren't for sale.

I've got two sets of the plastic 65lb 12" weights that I'd love to sell. They stick to far out for my liking.

My front weights were mounted on a HT23 I bought. I sold them because it had turning effort much harder. Plus I blam the weights to the excessive front end slop that tractor had.

My opinion, only use them with you need the extra front weight.
