    Default how much do wheel weights weigh?

    I was wanting to add some weight to my JD3320 on the rear so when I use my forks, so I could remove my shredder. I've seen the ballast box, however I was wondering about wheel weights or those suitcase type front weights. Does anyone know how much either the wheel weigths or the front weights weigh?

    The front weights are 42 lbs a piece, and cost about $1 per pound. Not sure what the wheel weights way...

    But, wheel weights alone will not be enough weight unless your tires are filled. I personally like the ballast box filled with Portland cement, it's a fast (especially with the iMatch QH), compact way to add 1000lbs to the rear of your machine. Your loader manual list specifics on how to ballast your machine properly.

    Your tire style / size will dictate what wheel weights it can accept. If it is the r4 industrial style (15-19.5) they are 55#'s both for starter and add on weight $2.00 / lb is the norm for that particular weight. If it is r1 ag tires (24" wheels) then they are the 110# weights for starter and add on and these will be closer to the $1.00 + / lb.
