Weight of Wheel Weights Needed?

My little compact Iseki TU165 diesel 4x4 needs wheel weights. It weighs in at 1200 lbs, as close as I can find out, I am seeking advice on what weight of wheel weights it needs for better traction. So I am trying to determine the weight that is substantial enough for this little tractor. I don't have the bolt pattern (distance between the wheel bolts) this morning, but am going out to the barn today and will update that info hopefully later today.

If these can't be found, I will fabricate an adapter and/or remove and install longer wheel bolts to accommodate other manufacturers weights. I can't find them on any website, including Iseki site. So this also brings up what strength of bolt I would need.

Or, if anyone has any home made home fabricated ideas, I'm listening

Why not fill the tires with winter grade wind shield wiper fluid?? That way you have the weight and wiper fluid does not cause the rims to rust out and does not cost all that much if you find it on sale

Thanks old, a very good thought which I am still considering as part of my adding weight, but at 4 gallons each wheel I'd only be adding 64lbs total.

I have also seen where guy would pull the wheel center off and coat it with grease and make there own cement weight that had bolts in the cement to hold the weight on the wheel center. Ya you might have to fab up some type of form to hold the cement in place while it sets up

Huh, I kind of like that low-dollar thought. I'll be leaving in a few, and check it out.

I number of years ago I had an old 9N that had the hat type rear rims. The hat area on the inside of the rim has rusted out so some one took and put cement in the area to add weight and also take care of it being a problem with a tube. I have a good many weights made wit ha simple bag of cement
