It looks like a kit to move aftermarket wheel weights outboard of the simplicity center hub on the right axle, and also space the left one the same.

Now, has anyone ever seen a set?

The installation instructions are very clear about checking the wheel hubs for breaks or cracks, so as far as I can tell these were field installed on weak wheels that had a tendancy to break the hubs out.

The large ring goes on the outside of the wheel, and the half rings go on the inside to strengthen the center hubs.

The 2 extra holes line up with the original wheel weight holes so they can still be used.

Thanks Todd and Bob. Those instructions are what I have, but they don't really say what tractors or why.

Now I know at least the 6000 series used them. I will have to search the wheel part numbers to see what else. ;)

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
