Are you asking about Cub Cadet wheel weights ? All I've seen in original paint are cream also. I painted one set yellow and one cream.

I have atleast 12 pairs of wheel weights. The castiron originals( Bolens, Cub, Magna Trak, and Wheelhorse) are white. The Craftsmen are Black plastic. There are a bunch of home made that are all colors. Good Luck, Rick

My JD pair is yellow.  The home made concrete ones inside a steel rim are just that, concrete.  About 50#'s each and anybody that has a Wheel Horse that wants them can have them.  Otherwise I will use them in the back of the truck this winter.

I have Wheel Horse weights on my Craftsman and they are black molded plastic outer shell. If I recall from my days of working at a Wheel Horse dealer in the mid '80's those were all the same as mine.

Thanks for the replys but I was referring to the David Bradley walk behind original wheel weights. I have a set of the craftsman plastic ones and they work great until the plastic rots off or gets cracked. But again thanks for the pics and information.

The DB weights I've seen were red like the tractor.

David Bradley walk behind wheels weights were green, red, blue or white depending on year. The rider weights were blue than white. If you have a bronze tractor with cream rims, I think the blue would be proper from what I have seen time wise.
