Pretty common plastic cement filled weights. May have come off a Wheel Horse, but could be off many different brands.

They look like the older style Craftsman weights that my Dad has. Here is a pic of my Wheel Horse weights.

I have 2 sets and they both have the same raised pattern on them. I don't have any pics of my Dad's and the newer Craftsman ones don't look like the one you showed.

That's OK Dan, I just spent about 15 minutes looking around the net and I can't find any that match the raised pattern on those! They're not Toro, MTD, JD, Bolens, Wards, Troy Bilt, Gravely, Husquvarna, or Craftsman old or new style!
I can understand wanting to know (believe me I do), but it doesn't really matter what "brand" they are if you just need the weight. They should work on just about any standard 12" wheel.

You know, I don't recall the std weight hole cross on a 12" rim. Funny how you use something so much, but don't remember stuff about it. Too danged hot for me to go right back out & measure though!

Alan, Your right, it measures about 9" CtoC on a 12" wheel. Those have to be for a 8" wheel.

But looking at the picture again, those are for 12" wheels. He must have measured from hole to hole, not across the weight. I just measured around the wheel and it's about 6" hole to hole that way.

Sorry it took so long for me to get back here, been way to buisy for my age. Thamks for looking at these weights, the 6" c/c is from hole to hole and the cross measurement is 81/2" c/c.

The holes in 12" wheels I have measured are 6-3/32" c/c and 8-5/8" c/c diagonally.
