IMGP1716.jpg Does anyone know what these weights go to. My son works at a Cenex and they were cleaning out old stuff so he brought them to me. I think they will fit on my Craftsman if I swap the rear wheels so the valve stem is inside. I thought they might of been left from when they used to sell lawn mowers. They used to sell Snapper's about 20 years ago and probably the Cenex brand. They have a 4 3/4" three hole pattern, a 4 3/8" two hole pattern, and a 3 1/2" two hole pattern. They weight 20lbs. each.

Gee Bud, I don't know. Looks like 8" rims tho... Is it possible they were for a walk behind or self propelled snow thrower?

Could they be for the front wheels?

I was thinking that possibility too. Snapper made some large enough for those to fit the fronts, but not sure if they had 3 holes or just 2 on the front rims.

Must be some type of universal mount with different mounting hole patterns.

I have a set just like them that I use on the front wheels of one of my Deere 112s with garden tiller.

A friend that owns a salvage yard gave them to me many years ago.

He or I have no idea of the origin either. Painted them JD Yellow, mounted them up, and away I went....

My Ford and the pair of JD front wheels I picked up have holes for wheel weights to bolt to. Not sure of the dimension, though. 20 lbs. sounds more like front weights, or a two wheel blower/tiller application.

I wondered if they could be front weights. They won't fit on my Sears front but will fit the rear. They are 9 1/8" dia. so they do not fit inside the rear wheel as it's 9". I don't know if that would hurt anything, and like you guys said they could be for a walk behind or universal. Thanks everyone.
