Hi all, looking at mounting JD wheel weights BM17972 (50 lbs.) on my BX2380 rears and was wonder if anyone has? The 1025R uses a 12 x 12 wheel also. I'd like to find a fair price on a used set. but everyone trying to retire on wheel weight sales, freight cost doesn't help.

as I made my own. 2 ~50# cast iron on each side. Good luck, I know what you mean about the cost of buying weights as they are expensive!

Bonny - do you have your tires loaded now with some type of fluid? That will add about 75 lbs per tire!

Yes, I had the dealer add the factory fluid before taking delivery. Approximate wheel and tire weigh 130 lbs.

Decided to keep JD wheel weights, with a little color not bad at all. My choices were orange or a close Kubota gray.
used 1/2 ready rod, oops all thread for you younger folks :) Tacked serrated flange nut on one end for inside of wheel and locked down with another flange nut on outside, four per wheel.
