Going to sound odd but I am looking for one wheel weight. It doesn't have to match lol. It does need to weigh either 40, 50, 90, or 100 pounds by itself. It also needs to bolt up to a 12 inch GT rim. Brand does not matter. What my objective is would be to keep the Caterpillar (craftsman) around 40 to 50 pounds heavier on the left side compared to the right side, and to do it without weight sticking way out. I was using one Farmall wheel weight on the outside of the Bolens weight I am using currently, at 40 pounds. If I could get one of those oddball ones someone mentioned on this forum a while back that was 90 pounds or something that would work. I do have my valve stems on the outside of my rims. Any help appreciated.

I thought you were just going to ride the fender? Oh, I'm sorry... You said you were looking for 90 lbs...

:poke:

I will keep my eyes open bud. I don't have a one off right now, but you never know.

find some john deere wheel weights that fit inside the outside rim. i have four of them installed (two on each rim) plus the 107 pounders on each wheel for my plow rig. the john deere weights are 25lbs a piece.

I have some homemade lead weights that are pretty heavy.
