I recently acquired these Bolens Stackable Wheel Weights.  I am a wheel horse guy so I am going to sell them.  Not sure what they normally sell for.  any information on what they fit and value would be great.

I'm not sure how to answer that. I see guys in here saying Massey MF-14s are worth 300.00, I'd buy them in any condition for that, and that' is my real point they are worth only what someone that wants them is willing to pay, 100.00 would be a cheap price to your best friend, and he would owe you big time, 150.00 is  reasonable offer that would see them go quickly, If you wanted to wait, maybe a long time you could go more, but someone would talk you down eventually, maybe. Case, Massey, and Bolens are the three top in wheel weight prices

They appear to have extra holes drilled in them. Don't know how bad that might hurt the value to a purest..

Those are for the Bolens Large Frames with the 15" wheels.  Seems like most of the large frames I've seen have the 12" wheels, so there isn't a real big demand for the 15" weights.

 

It used to be that $1.00/lb. was considered normal.  Seems like lately though folks have been ASKING more than that. Whether they are actually getting the asking price is debatable.

 

If I didn't have to travel a couple of hours, or have them shipped, I'd be willing to go $125.00 for them.

 

The last weights I bought was last fall, and I paid $100.00 for a set of weights that are 105 lbs. EACH.  They were originally from the steering tires of a combine, but fit 12" wheels just fine.

Pricey aren't they. Almost as much as the tractors in some markets.

There not as worth as the 12'' bolens wheel weights because you cant ship them cheap.

 

$35 is the going rate for just one of them you got two so your looking at $70/$75.

Just so you know they also fit Wheel Horses. Both D's and C 195's that used the 15 inch rims.

Yeah I knew they would baerpath but i have some c195 weights.  I bought them at an auction and just want to sell them.  I knew part of the problem would be shipping due to their size

From a collector standpoint I think those extra holes drilled in them would decrease value as well.....

I would weld them up and repaint them. I've seen Bolens Wheel weights go over 300.00 on ebay, certainly 200.00 is not uncommon for 15 inch wheel weights for a Bolens, the last set of Case 16 inches WW I saw went for close to 500.00
