I should try flipping, mounting the wheels on the wide stance, the weights fit the other side better.


But that might mess up the offset for the furrow width. If they preform OK, they look great to me. :D

Update 

Wheel weights > I picked up a set of 8" cast iron wheel weights, 20lbs each, no name on them.

The rims on my MF10 have the tire valve and the greases fitting are on the same side so I put them on the inside, drilled a couple of holes in the rims, mounted the weights on the outside. These weights don't stick out very far and seem to fit good.

For the rear wheels the factory Massey 2 piece weights stick out a fair bit, I have 6x12 AG tires on narrow rims on this tractor, tires are loaded. I also have a set of Farmall cub weights,26lbs each that I put on the outside and they fit good, don't stick out at all.

I'll try it out like this and see and it does, if I need more weight on the rear I can put the Massey wheel weights on the inside of the rims.

Extra weight added

Front weights = 40lbs total

Rear loaded tires = 50lbs total

Outside Rear weights  = 52lbs total (Farmall)

142lbs weight added

Inside Rear weights = 80lbs total (Massey)

222lbs total

Looks good Doug. I like the way the fronts look.

So, what are you going to tear up with it?

This one I use for pushing and pulling stuff, no PTO driven attachments so more traction is better.

Picked up a set of Sears weights, they are 35lbs each and have no name on them.

So I took off my 26lbs Farmall weights and put on the Sears 35lbs weights, after I painted them, and now I have 18lbs more weight on the rear.

Best thing I like about these front and rear weights is they don't stick out hardly at all.

I now have

240lbs extra weight added to the wheels of this tractor.

40lbs front

200lbs rear

Nice looking weights on there Doug. I'll give ya a pass on the repaint, it's a step in the right direction going from straw yellow to Massey red. :D
