Welcome to GTtalk. I'm thinking that they are homemade, but nicely done. Looks like someone cut them out of plate and drill the mounting holes in them.

IMG_2035.JPG IMG_2036.JPG Thanks for the welcome. Here are a few more images of the edges, they are heavy at least 50 pounds each.

Welcome to GTT. I agree with Brian that they look home made but very well done. What tractor do they go to? Good Luck, Rick

They came on a model 73 Cub Cadet I just picked up today. I also got these weights but I think I identified them. They are John Deere.IMG_2030.JPG IMG_2032.JPG

    Each weight appears to be two cookies cut from different thickness plate and then welded together with a continuous weld. Likely with 7018 Rod. I can think of no possible reason for a manufacturer to resort to such a labor intensive fabrication process. If you were to incorporate a tape measure in such a way as to indicate outside diameter, hole size and spacing some one hear might be able to guess what machine they were fabricated for.    Don.

Here you go, they fit 12" cub cadet wheels perfect. I will probably paint them and use them.IMG_2037.JPG IMG_2038.JPG IMG_2039.JPG

Very well made and not cast.  Looks like a govt. contract job.

Weights could fit a lot of different tractors as a lot of wheel are interchangeable.  I have put JD wheels on Bolens tube frame and XL, Cub Cadet GT's, Sears Suburban, etc.
