[quote name='tweidman']I have no idea whats on the front

Is it possible they are a set of rear weights from a 7 or 8? Like the ones that Stoneman found:

Do me a favor see if the 7,8 wheel weights fit in the front rims of a 10,12.

I don't think they will because of the axle stub and cover sticking out of the front wheel. There would need to be a large hollow in the back centre of the weight.

Do me a favor see if the 7,8 wheel weights fit in the front rims of a 10,12.

As JDBrian stated earlier, the weights won't fit without modifications because they don't have a cutout for the axle grease cap. I have found the need for front weights when using the 650 extended tiller. I usually chain metal barbell weights to the bumper, but have thought that small suitcase type weights would fit nicely on the bumper to either side of the frame attachment point and they would be easier to add and remove, plus they would provide greater leverage out front of the tractor rather than on the front axle. Has anyone ever tried to fit suitcase weights from a small Kubota or other small tractor onto an MF-10 or 12? Thanks.

Spacers could be used but the tire valve is still in the way, not sure if you can reverse the front wheels???

just drill new hole of appropriate size on inside of rim , pop new valve stem in place and plug weld old hole or put new valve stem in old hole backwards aka stem pointing inwards . will leave just a small black bump showing.
