I got these weights from A friend of mine. He forgot he had them and found them in the weeds. He asked me if I wanted them and I said Shure!!! :bounce:

With some sandblasting and a fresh coat of paint they should look great!

What a great freebie! The rear rim weights are like 2 sets I have, but without the brand name on them. What I like about them is the fact they fit entirely inside the rim, not sticking out from rim at all. The rears alone would go for over $100/set without shipping!

Yeah, The fronts go for around $100 a set also. I'm glad I got these because the other weights I had did not have a hole through the center so I couldnt get to the differential lock when I needed to.

The weights went on a 1256 that he used to have. He sold the tractor years ago and forgot all about the weights.
