I got a used set of MTD tractor wheel weights OEM-190-784

This are 50 lbs. each.

Tried to put them on a set  JD wheels (tire size 23x10.5x12)

They will not fit on the rims, just a little to big to fit.

They are are 12" rims.

 

Why won't they fit? 

They look good and fill good, the plastic is not cracked or broken.

No noise from the inside of the wheel weights.  I do not want to force them on.

 

Any idea why?

 

thanks

JD wheels made with thicker metal?

My MTD wheels are four lug. My JD wheels are five lug(as are most). Maybe there is a difference in the inner diameter. Don't force anything or they will just break. Good Luck, Rick

Deere's rim must have a deeper "drop center"   ???

That's odd, as I've used the same weights on my John Deere F935.

I have a set of rear rims off of a Craftsman 2 GT5000 and 2 sets of rims off of old Cub Cadet tractors.The center of the Craftsman rims ARE slightly wider.Wider by 1/8" maybe a little bit more.My 2 30lb sets of cast iron walk behind tractor weights won't fit the Cub Cadet rims but fit the craftsman rims just fine.Still a little tight but these weights were made for the old 4x12 rims with 5x12 tires.
