I just picked up a full set of pie weights. It is the “regular duty” set, with each segment being 30 pounds (though the actual weight of the one I checked was 32.5).

The set was complete, except for the lug extensions. I have been able locate 8 lug extensions. I’d like to get the rest, but they are ridiculously expensive, when they can be found. I’m wondering if anyone here has tried to run the lighter weight set (roughly 400 lbs. per side) with fewer than 8 lug extensions per side. Can I get away with four per side?

After I bought the weights it occurred to me to check the manual for what it said about wheel weights. I’ve attached the chart. It shows that the set I got is meant for the 600 series only. The centers (mounting plate) looks like it will mount on my 850 without issue. My assumption is that both sets can be used on the 800 series, but that the heavier set is what is recommended. Is there any reason the lighter set should not be used on an 800 series?

There was guy on the NTC site, has been absent for a few years since he got out of Ford Tractors, but he had made a bunch of the stud extenders. He just posted yesterday so go there and ask him -JimUT is his handle. Many fellas only use 4 or 6 weights too -you don't need to use all of them, especially on the NAA and 600 models. Avoid using on the N-Series -axles may not support a full set, especially if the HD (45#) style. I have a complete set of 45# pie weights and two sets of stud extenders, but never used them on my 8N. I have Rim Guard (Beet Juice) in my 11.2 x 28 rear work tires and that has worked fine for over 20 years now.

I have 2 sets and the lugs are slightly different size, so if you get 8 more, check size with yours. Might have to put new ones all on one side.

I have two light sets. I have a lot of the special extension nuts but when I put a set on my 971 ten years ago I was short four. Each side has had just six mounts for a lot of hours.

Small weight segments are to be used with the 600/ NAA as the axle is smaller than the 800 or 900 series which can run either size.

I have been running a heavy set(1200#)on 4 bolts each side,and 3/4 full of fluid,since 1966 on a 800. They are still there! Have also been using a heavy set on a NAA since 1999.eight bolt each side, nothing has happened there either

You can probably get away just using the 4 bolts each plate. The 4hole plate was lighter then the 8 hole plate.
If you want the rest I can recommend a couple of guys. Last time I bought them they were about $6 a piece.

As to whether the light set can be used on an 800 series, heck yes. The "heavy recommended" is for doing heavy plowing, hard pulling jobs. The lighter set will give additional traction for all but the heaviest jobs. Most 800's now days just aren't worked to the max like they used to when they were the "big" tractor. Enjoy your weights on whatever tractor you have, just don't drop one on your toe!

The lug nut extenders are available aftermarket from Steiners, etc. for around $11.00 each.

That said, later model 30 Lb. sets were supplied with lighter weight discs with only 4 holes for the extenders so you should be OK with 4 per side.

The first set of pie weights I owned only had four stud nuts per wheel. They were 30 pounders.
The plates were made with only four mounting holes.
I would keep looking for the rest of them but run them as they are for now.
