Hey guys. So I have a 73 Bolens G10 with 23x10.50/12 AG tires. I have the Massey ferguson wheel weights for it on the rear. I also got some heavy brake rotors that will bolt right up with the tire and everything. My question is, does anyone know If I can bolt up the rotors and have the Massey weights sit on top of them. by bolting into the weights bolting holes? Ive been in a few bike crashes so its hard for me to be getting on and off the ground alot so I want to make sure it will work or if It wont, I want to be able the drill holes in the rotors so I can bolt up my wheel weights over top of them. Thanks.

Might stick out a bunch. You could put the MF weights on the inside of the rim and your rotors on the outside of rim. Or.... i'll gladly take those MF's off your hands. I don't think those weights will fit on a Bolens rim. Lol

Is the bolt circle on your rotors the same as the bolt circle on the weights and rims? If so, it should work. The rotors I made my weights from had a bolt circle 2" smaller than the bolt circle on the rim, so I had to bend a "dogleg" into my mounting bolts to get them bolted up. I would have to do some re-engineering to be able to stack them with factory weights.

Putting the two piece MF weights on the inside of the tire and the rotors on the outside is the best plan IMHO.
Oh, and if they won't drill... Try cutting slots in them with the torch

Thanks Limebuzz I am pretty sure they will not work on a Bolens either. :D

Now you and me can fight over then. :shoot2:
