Hello everyone,
I found a set of wheel weights locally. The owners says they are cast iron, 12" wheel, they say mfg brand and are 40lbs each. Does this sound like a old cast massey wheel weight set??? I have a 2011 massey gc 2600 scut and I want to bolt them on the rear for extra weight. So if they are massey weights please let me know so I can snatch them up quick before there gone. Also some pics would be nice to se what they are supposed to look like, Thanks!!!

Yeah, just like Ducky's, that's what they are, just like these.

Ducky, that thing is wild.:smile1:

Hope this helps, but it may mean nothing. Are the rims on your GC the same?

You should get on agcopartsbooks.com and see what's shown there.
#'s should be in the casting.

so if they say mfg, there massey?? I haven't seen them or a pic of them yet. The gentleman thats selling them seems very old and I can barely understand him on the phone. I would think they should fit as my wheels are 12" and have the mounting holes in them for wheel weights. I figured I'd paint them up red, and put them on there. For $40 I cant go wrong I think.

If they are the real thing, $40.00 is a steal deal for them.

If they are 40 Lb cast weights for $40...it doesn't matter what brand they are! That's a good price for weights in general and an awesome price for a set of original Massey weights!

I bought 10 of them because I needs a pair of my loader tractor also. I got them local for just a bit over a grand. I thought it was a real deal.

Yes there is. It is called 1855 to 4855. It has been a bit stagnant lately because for summer but will be getting back on it again this winter. When I am all done I would like to write an article on the build.

actually a grand for 10 isnt a bad deal. it seems expensive but in reality, a lil over 100 bucks a piece isnt bad. when i get the allis 310 going im going in invest in dually ags. firestone floatations or tru powers.

Those Tru Powers are some great tires.Have Rim guards as well. Makes them a tad bit wide as well.
