One wheel weight is done and will finish the other tonight. Made a test fit before they get painted. They fit good and the studs don't stick out past the tire. Now, where's the snow. snowing.gif

Very powerful rear end. May want to do an oil change on it tho. Make certain you get the right filter.

One more thing to watch, make sure there is no slop in the pulley for the tranny. If there is, pull the tranny and deal with it now. Green locktite?
They are NLA and none left anywhere that I could find. Odd size, odd offset, odd splines.

Got'em installed. Now I need to get the blower repainted and I will be ready for the snow. Might have to wait several more years for enough snowfall to try it though.

If you ever do get that snow, you'll be wanting chains to go with the weights

I have a set that will work if I shorten them up a little. They are 4-link so I will be looking for another set of cross links to add in.

4 link works well. Marks the asphalt a little more, but still good traction.
