I got some wheel weights a while back and decided to put them on the SS14. When I got them from Ebay, the ad said Sears weights, but I'm pretty sure they are John Deere starter weights, although no JD casting marks. My question is, if I put John Deere wheel weights on a Sears, will I smoke a turd in Hell?

I still need to blast and paint them, just put them on to get a feel of how I liked them. Also still need to mount up the rear tires, just waiting for it to be a little warmer to paint.

So, are these John Deere starter weights? They are about 50#, and under the white paint, there is a layer of red and yellow under that.

I have yet to put OEM weights on anything I own. I think the Sears weights were a little different. They may be IH weights too.

They aren't Cub weights I'm almost certain. I've never seen cub weights this shape and those weigh in at 25# or so. I would say for sure they are JD weights by the shape, but I thought JD weights has casting marks that would id them. Maybe a JD guy will be along.

I'm not really worried about smoking a turd in H E double toothpicks. My real question is, are these indeed JD wheelweights?

They could be an off brand set.I've seen several sets that had no markings.They look like a nice set of weights.The inclosed center hole is NICE.That will keep the white stuff,or brown stuff out of your rim.

They sure do look like Deere weights though.

But they could also be Sperry-Rand (New Holland)(Ariens) if they have the Cross Logo on the back.

I have another identical set I'll post some pics of tomorrow. Neither set has the cross on the backside.

John Deere did make weights like this, and had the part number cast into the back side of the weight, along with the JD stamp. The casting number would be M11028M. Deere did make a later style weight, same size and look, but the number wasn't cast into the weight. It was stamped in black ink. I think this is the type you have, which means, when you strip the paint off of them, you won't see the stamped mark.

I wasn't aware they had a newer style with an ink stamp. That would maybe explain why no casting marks.

They look like inside Wheel Horse weights. Like you mentioned, the picture is a little difficult to see details
