I am new to the tractor world, as I just purchased my first tractor, a 1970 Ford 3000, a few months ago. I would like to add rear wheel weights to my tractor. Though I havent a clue about weights and how they mount. From pictures I have viewed online, it appears that some weights (stackable) attach to the rims and others like pie weights mount to a ring that mounts to the lugs? I see for-sale adds, for Ford wheel weights on Craigslist but dont what, I need to measure on my rim, to make a purchase. Any help/knowledge, on this subject would be greatly appreciated. I have 14.9-28 rear tires on my tractor.

Thanks, Kirk
I am picking up the set of pie weights I posted, tomorrow morning for $300. I also found the 16 lug extenders for just over $102 with tax & delivery. Thanks to all, who took their time to share their knowledge on the wheel weights with me.

Also something to consider with this set, at least from what I can see from your photo, is that there is no valve stem cutout pie segment. If your valve stem is located on the outside where you will be mounting the weights than you would have to leave one pie off for the valve stem. Look at my photo for cutout.

I found this set of weights that came off a Ford 8N with 10x28 wheels. Will they fit my manual adjustable 28 wheels?

Yes, appears to be Heavy Duty weights. What is shown is not a complete set. Missing the apter nuts. Expect to pay between $6/$12 each for them. X 16

A couple of photos of wheels I grabbed off the internet.
Power adjust

Manual adjust.

If you have manual adjust, also called looped rims, there are many more styles of weights. Here are a couple.

3 piece weights.

Here are two types of weights.
One piece and pie weights

Also there are a couple types of stackable weights. GBMT showed you one.
Some weights bolt to the wheel center.
Some bolt to the loops.
The ones that bolt to the loops will fit all 28" Ford rims from the 1939 9N through the 1982 3600 and in some cases beyond.

How do I find out if my wheels are manual or power adjustable? As I stated, I am a complete Newbie to tractors. Thanks

Not sure what manual or power adjust wheels are? Could you briefly explain to me what they are?

Here is what the power adjust rims look like on my 871 gold demo. They are secured to rails using 4 bolts. If your rim has 6 bolts connecting rim to center disc than it's a standard 6 loop rim.

The power adjust rims have 4 rails diagnial on inside rim and have spacer with 9 lugs outside with 8 inside. Non adjust are just 6 loop rims.

I don't think they still made pie weights when the 3 cylinder thousand series was made, but if your has the stock 28" wheels then the pie weights for the earlier 4 cylinder tractors should work. The stackable ring weights are what the 3000 would have had installed by a dealer at the time it was new. Which ring weights it needs depends on whether it has manual adjust wheels or power adjust.
