This is an interesting picture from a Ridemaster catalog. It looks like they are using a standard wheel weight turned backwards and mounted to the ridemaster. Now, what color would the weight have been? Might be a neat thing to put onto the Ridemaster.

Those are the older 50s weights.  Newer Ridemasters had cut outs in the front rims so you could put the weights on.    You could also put the wheel weights on the back rims.  Bolens offers a wheel weight that could also go on the inside of the back rim so you could put two weights on each rear tire and one on each front tire.    So you could add 300 pounds to the tractor.  

They also are yellow like the rims and seat.

So they are different than the ones we put on the tube frame and large frame? I thought they might look good on a 1948 Ridemaster if they fit.
