Picked up my rear rims today and got the tires mounted. Those Tru power tires bulged a bit on the sides and ended up rubbing on the inner fender. So started looking around for some spacers and realized the old axles would do the trick. I drilled out my axles and replaced the wheel bolts for studs and chrome nuts. I left 8 inches of the axle and killed two birds with one stone. I had 1/4 spacers and a shaft to add wheel weights. It worked out well.

I have one observation, the spring clip probably wont keep the weights on a rotating shaft. I dont even trust them for weight lifting. Are the weights locked on or will they act like the spinner hub caps when you stop?

Thanks Mike.... Today I completed the weight racks. This is something that bothered me. I noticed that guys hang weights without any consideration for the looks.  I have four places for weights.... a tray under the wheelie bars holds 70 pounds of flat stock. Behind the seat weider cast weights 100 lbs. Then on the wheels 55 each side and finally the big one under the tractor will hold 340 lbs. That round bar slides out when not in use seen a few guys smack there shins on these things. That gives me a grand total of 620 Lbs. At a cost of a buck a pound plus tax ug a expence I forgot about.  Just need to put on the front rims/tires  and finish making my seat cushion and its done...  :firejumper:

After some thought I decided to add a spot out front for another 20 lbs in case she lifts to much...the bar can be removed when not used..

I liked the diamond plate seat but was very hard on the butt so I used the wifes sewing machine and made a cushion. I used 2 inches of memory foam and 10 bucks of vinyl.

Looks great, this is a picture of how you need to cut tires to work.

Going to need to do more than that for them tru-powers to work. The tread angle is not as straight as the Firestones or even Lawtecs, this will cause to much shear.But they can be ground up to help this, you just need to be careful and plan your cuts

our tracks are hard clay nothing soft around here. I seen guys smoke there tires it gets so hard after a few hours. So I need to cut a relief on the top so the front of tread is higher?  Its done cept the air filter I am waiting on. Was a fun build but of course it cost twice as much and took twice the time I expected.. lol
