WD45 Wheel Weight ?'s

I have a set of wheel weights for a WD45 front and rear.
I was wondering how much do the back ones weigh and front ones weigh?

Also can I bolt the front weights to the inside of the wheel so they are not such an eye sore? Thanks.

I believe fronts were around 80 Lbs.

I believe the rear ones are about 125#. I have no experience with the front ones, however I believe the inside ones were cast in two pieces, so they could be installed without removing the rim. Also -is the center hole in the front weight even big enough to go over the hub, even if it would fit the inside of the rim?

The hole looks like it is big enough to go over the hub but I don't know for sure for. I haven't messed with trying to do it since its so heavy till I know it will work this way.

It took getting near my to C to jog my memory! It has inside wheel weights all the way around. The front ones are one piece, and are absolutely flat on the exposed side. I measured the rims and it appears the same wheel center was used on 15" and 16", so I would assume the bolt mounting hole dimensions would be the same. Seems like outside weights were very much doughnut/rounded shaped, with a valve stem notch.

I have front weights on my WD-45. They are mounted on the inside. You really have to look to notice them.

I tried putting mine on the inside. Not enough clearance they were rubbing on the spindle. Did you add a spacer to your wheel?

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
