Another thought and some clarifications...

While I'm all for keeping and repairing the rims, work is keeping me busy at 60 to 80 hours/week, not including commuting time. If I land this next job, that should keep me rolling at that pace through Christmas. Meanwhile, fall is here, snow is coming - maybe?. At the rate I'm going, I'll probably be paying someone to mount/un-mount the tires and pump the calcium. If so, that will give me a short window to do the rim repairs. If I go that route and get new/slightly used rims, I could save the old and repair them in my spare time then sell them (or keep them as I have a hard time getting rid of something I "might" need later).

As for the calcium... I'm going to price out what that is running on the pump out/refill, as I did hear of a set of axle weights not far from one of my jobs.

How do axle weights compare with loaded tires? I'm not familiar with them. Do they slide around on the axles? Fall off easy on hills/bumps?

Also, I like the idea of the truck bed liner on the rims - great idea. Will probably do that either way.

Here are 2 sets of the axle weights. I will sell the blue set for $350. Located in Central Texas.

Thanks! Wish this had happened earlier... I was in Texas for work at the end of July. Would have been easy. Probably wouldn't make sense at this point, but the pics helped a lot to understand what they were. Just curious, how much weight do they add and do they fit other '01 through early 4000 series axles?

They weigh about 350 lbs each and they will fit '55-'64 4 cylinder tractors. I'm guessing they will also fit N's and post '64 2000/3000's.

axle weights are rare.. and bolt onto the trumpet.

wheel weights are more common.

both are spendy.

tire ballast is cheap cheap... in comparison
