Wheel weights

Recommended Posts

I need Wheel weights for my tractor and was wondering if anybody knows what they weight? My service guy has some homemade steel weights for $20 total for both tires, but dont know if they weight enought.

I think the best deal on wheel weights is to make brackets up so you can use barbell weights... new 25 pounders at Walmart for about $12 each..Not to mention finding used ones at garage sales ect.

I'm certainly no physics major but. It seems to me that the weights mounted with the center hole, when alowed to spin on the mount, would cause close to zero stress on the tractor when starting and stopping. They would come up to speed, and slow down, under their own momentum, therfore aplying non of their kenetic energy to the drivetrain. Just my theory, I don't know how valid.
