I spent some time today trying to see if I could put JD wheel weights on Massey front rims without the weight sticking out.

I got a pair of Jd weights, 35lbs each.

The front tire size on MF10,12,14,16 is 16x6.50x8, some have narrow rims, here I am using the wide rim.

Here's a  rim, the weight and what I want to end up with.

To do this I had to drill 2 mounting holes and 1 hole for the tire valve to move it to the inside of the rim.

Inside, with hole for tire valve and mounting bolts.

Finally the weight bolted in place, tire valve and grease fitting on the inside.

Tires I'm using are V61 with tubes, like these.

This will be done on a good pair of rims that I have and go on my MF16 tractor that has the 3 point lift on it, 70lbs extra weight on the front should help to hold it down.

Doug, that's great. They'll look even better painted red or mist. :D

Plan on Mist for the rims and Red for the weights.
