Anybody got an idea where to buy rear wheel weight in GA? Is it better just to fill the tires?
I picked up 4 50lb cast iron wheel weights off craigslist for $200. Some spray paint and they now look like new. It would be nice to have the starter weights, but arent needed. Weights from any tractor with 12" wheels should work.I priced a set of rear wheel weights while at the dealer today
2, BM17973, 72lb cast iron starter weight ring, 167.00each
4, BM17972. 50lb cast iron wheel weight, 118.00each a max of 2 50lb weight per wheel
for a total of 570.00 for the full set of weights for the 26x12x12 wheels on my 1026R. All I can say is that they are not a priority at this time...:mocking:
Agreed as the engineers take these things into account; besides the wheels would have to be turning at a pretty good clip for rotational mass to be a detrimental factor.Some like the fluid filled wheels because it adds weight without rotational mass. I personally don't think that the rotational mass of wheel weights is going to do anything to hurt the drivetrain on anything as heavy duty as these tractors.
