Finally got the weights all finished.
Used 1/2" x 6-1/2" Carriage bolt to attach weight to the rim.... wish they made a 6-3/4" carriage bolt.... as that would of been the perfect length.
I also used some "leak seal" and applied it to the inside of the weight.... to put a rubber barrier between the rim and the weight.... Hopefully it will prevent the weight from scratching the rim.
The old bolts were only 6" so the garden tractor that they were most likely attached to was not as deep of a rim.
The weights fit rim PERFECTLY !

I weighted them when I got them.... And I thought I wrote it down. From what I remember they weight just under 50 lbs. (I want to say 47 lbs each)

I use Chevrolet orange engine paint, since it matches the Kubota orange perfectly, and I also have a 1962 Chevrolet, and always have the paint in the garage for touch up on my engine.
Your weights look great, and when I fist posted, I wasn't even thinking about the Bolens weights. I recently sold off my Bolens HT20, and when I got it out of the back yard, I found the wheel weights near the tractor. I will probably put them on my tractor at some point, even though I have my rear tires filled with beet juice.
