Some of you might recall a few weeks ago I bought a Sears 14-6. I want a set of wheel weights for the rear and how the heck do I know what fits? The inside of the wheel is about 10".The next measurement I took is where the wheel "rolls out" to the next dimension which is 11 1/2". The wheel depth is 3 1/2 -4 1/2 " deep. The weight mounting holes are 8 3/4" on center. What am I supposed to look for to fit the tractor based on these dimensions?
Thanks for any and all help.

if the weights are for a 12" wheel, they'll most likely fit. pretty generic

the sears cast iron ones will run you anywhere from 75 to 125 depending on condition

I figured the value of my tractor, and how much the weights cost me with the tractor and I got $10 for 2 sets of iron weights. However around me these weights go for $40-60 a set I have found and are highly liked.


Weights seem expensive in my mind, but the difference they make is unbelievable almost so they are definitely worth it in the end.

I'm looking on c-list and fleabay but nothing yet. Patience. By the way if anybody is interested in a Cub 107 hydro I found one with a smoking 10 H.P. kohler on it for 150.00 Didn't buy it but if you want it let me know and we can possibly work something out. he was asking 300.00 for it but will let it go for 150.00

I got my sears cast ones for $40 off craigslist and about $8 of carriage bolts and nuts from tractor supply... They sell their bolts by the pound, sometimes it is cheaper than piece meal!

IH cub weights work great too! don't weigh as much, but you get a set of those and sears weights, and you got about 77lbs on each wheel! Cub weights inside the hub, sears weights outside. Like this:

or get Sears or craftsman plastic ones like this

Any 12" wheel weight for lawn and garden tractor will fit.
