Default Bx wheel weights

I have looked around and have not been able to find wheel weights that fit nicely inside the rim like the one pictured
The man in the picture says that they are Bolens weights and are something like 30 years old.

I do not want to fill my tires..... and I would really prefer a weight to fit 'inside" the rim.

Thank You

John deere has some that go inside the wheel but they are mighty expensive. Part number is UC13499.

Any old garden tractor weights should fit as they mostly used 12 inch wheels.

or you could take the wheels off,,, and cut a 5 gallon bucket off fill with cement and stick a couple long pieces of threaded rod in to the cement using the wheels to spot the holes

But garden tractor weights fit mostly outside the wheels.

Yes they do that is not a problem,, one other approach is you head to your scrap yard and find some 1 inch steel plate, and either you or someone else cut it to fit in the rim. Drill holes inthe plate and bolt it inside the rim. odds are you wont get the weight you want. And I am still wondering why you do want to fill the tires,, thats cheap easy and you can get all the weight you need

Filling tubes with cacium/water is always bad, look at all old farm tractors, when they did this....No matter how careful you are, some salt water leaks out....game over....it take over a day to PROPERLY desalt/clean/paint any rim that's been attacked by salt. Last summer I tossed out 7 rims...figure $350 Canucks to replace, per rim...NOT including new tubes and NOT including the time to desalt the tire !
Using WWiper fluid is kinda bad for the ground....beet juice is great but MESSY.
The best, clean weights are steel or concrete. Now if you have a stash of tungsten......!!!

Salt water is bad yes,there are however a few alternatives. like beet juice, or windshield fluid or RV antifreeze all work very well and wont rust your rims, and are easy do it yourself at home in the garage and inexpensive, except the beet juice

I know sky doesnt want to fill his tires, but put me in the camp with saying to just fill them... I just went through this myself. My tires had washer fluid in them, drained them into containers, changed the tires, filled them, never spilled more than a few drops. You can use a little 1 gallon bug sprayer, install a schrader valve in it, cut off the wand before the trigger. and you stick that 1/4" ID hose directly on the valve stem (absent the valve core). Air it up with your compressor, repeat 20 times. Took about an hour to fill.
