I am trying to mount the three wheel weights on each wheel but find that they are too heavy to lift by myself. Wondering if someone has devised a way to handle this via some simple rigging device?

You need a friend with a forklift or forks on a FEL. That is how the dealers do it.

Thanks, do not have a forklift to do this so will try to rig it up with a 2 by 4 8 ft long inserted into the hub of the wheel and use that to lift the ring into position. Will let everyone know how it works out after this weekend

Often we use threaded rod for wheel weights making changes easy!
