These wheel weights came on a White GT-1650 I just picked up. They're absolutely for 12" wheels and someone just had them rigged onto the 15" wheels on the White. I can't find any visible markings and they're not all that heavy. Anyone have any ideas about what they may have been for originally?

Look like weights that could go on the inside of the wheel.

I bet those weights came off some sort of walk behind tractor.  What Make/model I have no idea.

Thanks for the ideas guys. Maybe I'll sandblast one of em at some point here and see if there's any markings hidden under all that paint... In the meantime I've got a new tractor to play with!

All it really is, is an MTD 990 re-badged as a White. A 990's been on my "want" list so this will work just fine as it's slightly more unique and runs great. Just needs tires which are unfortunately quite pricy for the wheel size it runs.

Maybe front weights for a CUB?

Critters,

The Cubs had 12" front wheels then I assume?  I wasn't aware of that but that's a possibility.  Hopefully someone will recognize these things!

If they were IH, they would have IH cast into them. I'm with Daniel in thinking walk behind of some kind.
