Just picked up 5----30# vibration dampeners for a CAT diesel.

 

Think they will make good wheel weights? I hope so, as they cost me $20!

Those will make great weights!  Maybe weld on 3 or 4 tabs around the perimeter to keep the weights from moving.

Would make nice inner weights if the fit over your rear axle hubs. Nice find!

You know Troy, they look like the inner portion is thinner, so one could torch out the thin centers, then they would fit over any hub.

Nice haul for $20.
They should do nicely.

The 12" may not sit back in, you may need to put a std weight in first, then these.

That's how I did when I used the Farmall weights.  I first put a set of Bolens style weights that fit totally inside the rim center, used extra long all thread, used nuts to hold those weights snug, then slid on the Farmall weights, then another set of nuts to lock them.
